The City of Toronto is hosting a series of meetings to present the results of the Eglinton Connects planning study. These meetings will be held on October 7th, 8th and 9th at locations across the corridor.

Some of the recommendations to be presented include:

  • Four general traffic lanes for the majority of Eglinton, with on street parking similar to what exists today;
  • For Avenue Road to Mt. Pleasant, where the volume of traffic is lower, two general traffic lanes plus a left turn lane, with dedicated on-street parking in lay-by spaces;
  • A continuous protected bike lane along Eglinton, from Black Creek to Brentcliffe (standard bike lanes are already approved between Brentcliffe & Kennedy);
  • Wider sidewalks, plus room for big trees, benches and patios;
  • New public spaces, including parks, plazas and forecourts; and
  • Permitting mid-rise buildings along Eglinton, and taller than mid-rise in certain Focus Areas.

Drop in any time between 6:30 and 9:00pm. The presentation will begin at 7:00pm and staff will be on hand to answer any questions. We look forward to seeing you there.
