    Roads: Gardiner Expressway

    Look for the Gardiner to be leased to Therme for 99 years. It will be renamed the Therme Expressway. All the downtown exit and entrance ramps will be closed except for one exit that leads directly to the parking lot of the new Therme Spa.

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Who is handling the leasing of retail spaces in the new stations? I thought Gateway but they filed for creditor protection last year. Can't find anything on or MX sites.

    Roads: Scarlett Road / CP Rail Bridge EA

    They are finally beginning the utility relocates for the project. First up is Enbridge who are going to occupy Dundas, Scarlett and St. Clair to install some new gas mains. This was forwarded by Gord Perks...

    Downtown congestion pricing system

    A full scale congestion relief program could take years to implement. But consider how just the threat of a “downtown traffic fee” could cause drivers to switch to public transit. Maybe a single mobile vehicle tolling setup that could be randomly moved daily between Gardiner DVP off ramps. Any...

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Will the hollow parts of the track beds get filled in? Will they be used for utilities or stormwater drainage? Might be fun for future urban explorers or DoorsOpen Toronto events? /s

    Roads: Scarlett Road / CP Rail Bridge EA

    Thank you for posting this. In a coincidence this project came up in a meeting the Warren Park Ratepayers Association had with Gord Perks just yesterday. He promised that the community would have advance notice of changes and be allowed to provide input on this project. In the document (...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    They have sort-of done this at the intersection of Bloor (eastbound) and Parkside. I would have liked to have seen a "no right turn" on red sign placed on the nearside of the right turn lane. The existing one is included in a clutter of other directional signs. (note the vehicle in the street...

    Roads: Scarlett Road / CP Rail Bridge EA

    I’ve often wondered what the impetus for this project is and who is paying for it? Is it to provide a wider bridge for increased tracks for GO trains? Then shouldn’t Metrolinx be paying for it? I live in the area and I don’t really see the community benefits. Sure, there are benefits to...

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    I think this is a change for the better - well for me anyways. The 935 Express bus north from Jane always seems busy - so express riders may not be so happy. I live south of Dundas near Jane and work at Yonge and Eglinton. Still not sure which commute would be better once Crosstown opens...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    Can the snowplows they use for bike lanes get through there? Where will the snow go?

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    I noticed this (really short 230m) addition to the bike lane infrastructure on the Crosstown website. Temporary? Or part of the Eglinton Connects project? Traffic and Pedestrian Changes All four crosswalks at the Yonge-Eglinton intersection will be open during this stage. Eglinton Avenue will...

    The Toronto Tree Thread

    I'm not sure who organizes it, but in my ravine park bordering community we have a springtime garlic mustard pull. Locals pull out the garlic mustard and put it into city provided garbage bags (apparently it shouldn't be composted). The city picks it up on the next garbage day from the park...

    Toronto Crosstown LRT | ?m | ?s

    Are they anywhere near returning Eglinton around Mt. Dennis (or any other station) to a "state of good repair"? I thought the Eglinton Connects plan (with its bike lanes) is supposed to kick in once Crosslinx finishes with a section of Eglinton... Aside - is there an Eglinton Connects forum here...

    Cycling infrastructure (Separated bike lanes)

    If something is to blame for declining retail/restaurant sales in the Annex/Bloor/Bathurst/Koreatown area then look no further than the closing of Mirvish Village and Honest Eds. Despite the tawdriness of some of those old stores and restaurants they were a draw for foot traffic in the area. I...

    General cycling issues (Is Toronto bike friendly?)

    I've been commuting daily on a "pedalec" in Toronto for about a year now. Its a good alternative if you're older (like me). Without the motor assist I wouldn't be able to ascend the hills out of the Humber River valley or up the Poplar Plains Hill. There is still physical exertion required but I...

    Toronto 2180 Yonge | 247m | 65s | Oxford Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    Looks like they might have some plans underway to share...
