Yonge Street is an iconic destination in the heart of downtown Toronto where residents and visitors come to live, work, learn and play. Currently, the sidewalks on Yonge Street have some of the highest pedestrian volumes in Canada. There has also been a considerable amount of development in the neighbourhood and the current population and employment are projected to double by 2041.
The City of Toronto is carrying out a study that will focus on the section of Yonge Street from Queen Street to College / Carlton Street. A number of opportunities will be considered to increase pedestrian space and improve the way people move through and experience Yonge Street.
