Construction underway on Woodbine Avenue bike lanes

News Aug 22, 2017 East York Mirror

Construction has begun on separated bike lanes on Woodbine Avenue.

Work on the cycle tracks, which will run from O’Connor Drive to Dixon Avenue along with shared lane markings known as sharrows from Dixon Avenue to Queen Street East, started on Friday, Aug. 18.

Depending on the weather, the first week of construction from Aug. 18 to 24 will see lanes built from O’Connor Drive to Danforth Avenue.

From Aug. 25 to 31, the lanes will be constructed from Danforth Avenue to Queen Street East.

The work will involve removing existing vehicle traffic lane markings and replacing them with new ones.

Work, which will run 24 hours a day on weekends and weekdays mostly during off-peak hours/evenings, will start on the Friday evening and end of the following Monday in the early morning hours.

Motorists should note that there will be left-turn restrictions at all intersections and driveways during weekend work. Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times and TTC service is also expected to continue as usual.

On-street parking will be off-limits starting both Friday, Aug. 18 and Friday, Aug. 25 at 6 p.m. during the affected areas for the first few days of work. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction with no stopping in the traffic lanes.

The new painted bike lanes, flexi-post bollards, and signs will be installed during off-peak hours.

Area residents should expect some noise as the existing paint will be removed using loud machinery during daytime hours. Construction staging may also impact some side streets.

Later this fall, a connecting contra-flow bike lane will be built on Corley Avenue between Woodbine Avenue and Brookside Drive. Sharrows are also set to be installed westbound on Norway Avenue been Woodbine and Elmer avenues.

Toronto City Council approved the Woodbine Bike Lanes Project last October.
