Changes Coming to the Bloor Viaduct Bikelanes

The Bloor Viaduct bikelanes are essential pieces of cycling infrastructure for residents of East York, the Danforth, Riverdale, Leslieville, the Beaches, etc… but they have some problems including being too narrow in spots as well as having a dangerous traffic crossing when approaching Broadview and Danforth from the west.  Safety concerns have been noted in the past by the Ward Advocacy Group Ward29Bikes.

The City looked at these safety concerns and decided to address some of them… stating that we’d see some changes by July 2010… but the changes have already begun:

It looks like the new bikelane may not only be a little wider (which would be extremely useful during rush-hour as there are many cyclists using the lanes… and a little more width will make passing safer) but have a small striped “buffer zone” between car traffic and bike traffic.
