The City of Toronto is planning to reconstruct the road and replace the City-owned portion of substandard water services on Knox Avenue between Eastern Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard East.

As part of the upcoming work, the City will be making improvements to increase safety and connectivity for all road users.  The work includes:

  • Road reconstruction on the west side of Knox Avenue to build new separated two-way cycle tracks connecting Easter Avenue with the Lake Shore Boulevard multi-use trail.
  • Widening the sidewalk on the west side of Knox Avenue, south of Eastern Avenue to Lake Shore Boulevard East.
  • Modifying the traffic signal at the intersection of Knox Avenue and Eastern Avenue

The roadwork provides an opportunity to improve safety for all road users and create a connection between the existing multi-use trail on Lake Shore Boulevard East and the existing Knox Avenue contra-flow bike lane north of Eastern Avenue.

As part of the City’s Council-approved Cycling Network Plan, this project connects gaps in the existing cycling network, better connecting people to places.

The construction area, illustrated below is Knox Avenue from Easter Avenue to Lake Shore Boulevard East.
