The City of Toronto installed eastbound and westbound bike lanes on Lawrence Avenue East between Port Union Road and Rouge Hills Drive in 2019. This project upgraded the signed cycling route to bike lanes to provide improved cycling connections between Rouge Urban National Park and the proposed bike lanes on Port Union Road, while improving safety for cyclists. The bike lanes also provide connections to the Rouge Hill GO Station and the Waterfront Trail.
the Lawrence bike lanes were approved by IEC in June 2019 and City Council in July 2019.
On April 10th, attendees had an opportunity to view and provide feedback on the draft designs for the proposed bike lanes and ask questions. Feedback was open until April 24, 2019.
The City of Toronto will be conducting major road resurfacing on Lawrence Avenue East, from Meadowvale Road to Port Union Road. This work is expected to be completed in June 2019 (depending on weather). Once this portion of the road is completed, the City will be conducting further road resurfacing on Lawrence Avenue East from Port Union Road to Frank Faubert Drive. The proposed bike lanes would be installed at the completion of this road resurfacing. Bike lane pavement markings would also be added on Lawrence Avenue East from Frank Faubert Drive to Rouge Hills Drive.
