Dedicated Bike Lanes coming to University Avenue

The Toronto Star has an article today about 2010 additions to the Bikelane Network.

They focus mainly on the plans to put physically-separate bikelanes down the middle of University Avenue for a 12-week Pilot Project, starting in July, reducing the street from 4 lanes to 3 in each direction, which city staff say after studying traffic patterns will have almost no effect:

“Traffic capacity analysis indicates that Univesity Avenue could operate with three travel lanes in each direction in the peak periods with little impact on the current levels of service,” the report said.

The Star included a photo of the Dundas East westbound bikelane with the story, for some reason (which I’ve included in this post).

Some BikingToronto members are discussing this in the News Group.

What are your thoughts on this new addition?
