Woodbine Bike Lanes – Community Meeting – January 18, 2021

ByBrad Bradford

REGISTER HERE for the virtual community meeting on Monday January 18, 2021 at 6pm.

The Woodbine bike lanes have been a source of heated debate in our community since they were installed in fall 2017. Since I was elected City Councillor in December 2018, I have been clear that I will work with the community to find ways to improve the road design to reduce congestion and cut-through traffic on surrounding streets.

After extensive consultation – including a large public meeting in April 2019 and some COVID related delays – City staff have prepared a new design for Woodbine between Kingston Road and Gerrard Street East. I am inviting the community to attend a meeting to learn more about the proposal and share their input. 

The goal for the proposed changes is to prioritize road safety by maintaining the bike lanes and finding every possible way to improve traffic flow to address concerns about congestion and related cut-through traffic on neighbouring streets.

City staff will be presenting the proposed design changes and available to answer questions. The meeting will be on Monday, January 18th at 6pm. Please register online through Zoom here and feel free to send your comments and questions in advance to councillor_ bradford@toronto.ca.
