City proposing cycling, pedestrian, and road safety upgrades
The city is inviting residents to a virtual public meeting about the Oakwood Neighbourhood Cycling Connections project on Winona Drive on March 22 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
The City is proposing cycling, pedestrian, and road safety upgrades on Winona to lower speeds, reduce cut-through traffic, and create safer, more comfortable conditions. The proposed changes include:
- Contra-flow bike lanes on Winona Drive between Eglinton Avenue West and Davenport Road that would allow people cycling to travel north and south on the one-way vehicular blocks.
- Cycling wayfinding markings on parts of Rosemount Avenue, Bracondale Hill Road, Hillcrest Drive, Tyrrel Avenue, and Winona Drive south of St. Clair Avenue West and north of Gloucester Grove.
- Different options of vehicular traffic flow changes to improve pickup and drop-off activities at Winona Drive Senior Public School, McMurrich Junior Public School and 529 Vaughan Rd.
- Traffic signal upgrades and modifications at key intersections, including at Shaw Street and Davenport Road.
