Do you want to know more about the DESTINATION DANFORTH project?
On Monday, June 22nd, Councillor Brad Bradford and the Danforth East Community Association (“DECA”) will host a community meeting to discuss the DESTINATION DANFORTH project. The event will take place virtually from 7 to 9 p.m. and interested individuals can sign up here – registration is required to attend.
What is the DESTINATION DANFORTH Project?
The DESTINATION DANFORTH project is a proposed investment of approximately $4 million on Danforth Avenue between Broadview Avenue to Dawes Road.
Some of the changes that are being proposed include: full-time parking & loading spaces, streetscape improvements, opportunities for more and expanded patios, a separated bicycle lane in both directions and adequate pedestrian space for circulation, safety, and physical distancing on sidewalks.
The project will be delivered in multiple phases, starting with a proposed initial installation in July 2020.
The DESTINATION DANFORTH project is related to the “Danforth Study” that was launched in 2019 to create a vision and plan for the Danforth into the future.
The Danforth Study was paused in light of the COVID-19 pandemic but recently, City Council has voted to accelerate key projects in Toronto to support economic recovery and address emerging transportation issues.
