Bike Lanes on Danforth — The Destination Danforth Complete Street Pilot

Construction dates: July 15th to August 10, 2020 (Broadview to Dawes)

In May 2020, Council approved the installation of the Destination Danforth Complete Street Pilot as part of the City’s Pandemic Mobility Recovery Strategy. The pilot will provide support for local businesses by providing expanded outdoor patio areas and street beautification (planters, art installations), improve safety and comfort for all road users, and provide a protected bike lane.

The City of Toronto will install a new complete street pilot on Danforth Avenue from Broadview Avenue to Dawes Road starting in mid-July. This will include: Cycle tracks (protected bicycle lanes) on both sides of the street; Temporary expanded patios (in the curb lane) for restaurants along the corridor that have applied and received approval through the City’s CaféTO program (Learn more: The protected bike lanes will temporarily bend around the expanded curb lane patio and parking will be temporarily removed; 24/7 on-street parking on both sides of Danforth Avenue; Artistic curb extensions to beautify the street and improve pedestrian safety at key intersections.

The installation will take place in three phases: Phase 1 : Broadview Avenue to Jones Avenue; Phase 2 : Jones Avenue to Woodbine Avenue; Phase 3: Woodbine Avenue to Dawes Road. The first phase of the work, between Broadview and Jones, will take place between July 15th and July 21, 2020. Construction will take place 24 days, 7 days a week, with noisy work being limited to day time hours as much as possible.

The order of installation prioritizes expanded patio areas and connectivity to the existing Bloor Street / Viaduct cycling infrastructure.

Work will take place 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will be limited to one side of roadway (north or south) at a time. One traffic lane will be maintained in each direction. During each phase, on-street parking will not be allowed.
