Bloor St. Bikelane ready for a comeback?

A longstanding and controversial plan to build bike lanes on Bloor St. is back on City Hall’s agenda. 

Six downtown councillors submitted a letter to the public works committee on Wednesday asking for an environmental assessment of the project to be revived. Council approved the assessment in October 2007, but it was halted soon after the 2010 municipal election swept Mayor Rob Ford into office on a promise to, among other things, forestall the “war on the car.”

There wasn’t enough support on the committee to restart the study immediately, but instead councillors asked city staff for a report on the impacts of completing the assessment. The report will go before the committee in September.
