Yes. The only over capacity vehicle movement at this intersection is east on Eglinton to north on Highway 27. The flyover would fix this.Wanting to be sure I'm understanding this correctly.... an east on Eglinton to north on 27 flyover?
Also note that one of the primary reasons this intersection is so congested is “weaving”. You can see a diagram of this posted on the map above. The problem is that drivers who want to go northbound on Highway 27 from either eastbound Eglinton Avenue Avenue or northbound Highway 427 all need to make it from the right-most lane on Eglinton Avenue to the left-most lane on Eglinton Avenue. This weaving through traffic causes a lot of congestion. The proposed flyover would be on the right side of the road, which means that these drivers can get onto northbound Highway 27, without ever leaving the rightmost lane.
And it should be noted that with or without the LRT, this particular movement at the intersection would be over capacity. The LRT wasn’t expected to make the capacity issue any worse.
