2. Adelaide Street Construction – Cycle Track Relocation to North Side (June 2023)

Engineering & Construction Services (ECS) and Transportation Services (TS) staff have identified an opportunity to begin the relocation of the cycle track from the south to the north side of the street from Bathurst Street to Parliament Street earlier than previously discussed. The previous schedule identified the relocation to occur in spring 2024, however, they can complete most of the relocation this summer.

The relocation will occur along the sections of Adelaide Street where no active construction is taking place. The sections that the City will complete in 2023 are Bathurst Street to York Street and Victoria Street to Parliament Street. The remaining relocation from York Street to Victoria Street will take place in spring 2024 after the TTC track work is complete.  Read more
