Bloor West Bikeway Construction Update

Project Wide:

  • The Bloor West Bikeway construction is almost complete! Some changes to concrete curbs, bollards, signage, bike parking and pavement markings are still underway.
  • Accessible loading platforms, to make it easier for Wheel Trans and accessible taxis to pick-up and drop-off passengers, are being installed in October.
  • CaféTO installations are planned for removal in November.

Indian Road to Symington Avenue:

  • Bikeway installation has been delayed due to infrastructure upgrades by Toronto Hydro, and road closures elsewhere such as Howard Park Ave that have rerouted buses through the Dundas and Bloor intersection.

Indian Road to Dundas Street West:

  • Bikeway installation is planned for October and November after pavement restoration by Toronto Hydro work is complete. Physical separation is planned for November and December after the pavement markings are installed.

Dundas Street West to Symington Avenue:

  • Toronto Hydro continues to replace their infrastructure underneath the road.  It is expected that this segment will see bikeway pavement markings installed in late November or early December after Toronto Hydro work is complete.
  • The rail bridge is scheduled for rehabilitation in 2021. The work will likely require lane restrictions during construction so physical separation for people cycling will be installed after this work is complete.

Traffic signals and signal timing:

  • Intersection and traffic signal upgrades are planned at the Runnymede Road, Clendenan Avenue, Keele Street, Dundas Street, Dufferin Street and Dovercourt Road intersections to improve safety between people cycling and motorists.
  • Some intersection signage improvements is planned at the Indian Road, Lansdowne Avenue, Brock Avenue and Ossington Avenue intersections to further highlight the new turning restrictions.
  • Traffic signals will be synchronized to facilitate traffic flow on Bloor Street West once all traffic signals are installed.
  • These improvements are planned for installation in November-January.
