Project Timeline

A feedback form can be accessed here. Comment period will close on Sunday, March 14th. Staff will report to Toronto City Council for approval in May and June, 2021.

Phase 1, east of Lower Sherbourne Street is proposed to be installed toward the end of 2021 to maintain a cycling connection between the downtown and the waterfront during planned construction.

Phase 2 is proposed to begin west of Sherbourne Street in 2022. This allows for the planned removal of the St. Lawrence Market Tent.

For most of the corridor, road level, bi-directional cycle tracks with concrete curbs, paint and new signal timing is proposed to be implemented over the next two years.

Temporary raised cycle tracks at TTC stops and south side accessible loading across the bikeway would be added at the same time.

Phase 3, as early as 2024, could include raised cycle tracks along David Crombie Park, raised cycle and pedestrian crossings at minor park intersections, permanent raised TTC stops and potential for protected intersections.

North-south bikeways on streets like Cherry, Berkeley, Church, Scott and Yonge Streets are being considered as potential future connections to The Esplanade and Mill Street. They are not considered as part of the scope for this project.

The ActiveTO Quiet Streets program on The Esplanade and Mill Street is coming to a close. Quiet Streets provided shared space to enable people to maintain physical distancing while walking, running, using wheelchairs and biking. The feedback collected from the survey for The Esplanade and Mill Street will help inform this cycling infrastructure project.

Project staff were available at the September 26 public consultation for the David Crombie Park Revitalization. Display boards and a feedback form were shared, as well as an online link to the form to circulate. The feedback form was open until October 11, 2019. Please view the summary of all feedback.
