Bloor Street bikelane being talked about (again)

Encouraging, but why not the Danforth too? The Danforth is wider than Bloor in most places and easily has room for bike infrastructure, plus bike-friendly councillors in Fletcher, McMahon, Davis and Fragedakis.

Despite annual rides in support of more cycling infrastructure on the street, there has been no official movement on Bloor since the incomplete environmental assessment was binned in July 2011 with the Jarvis Street lanes.

Now, more than two years later, Jared Kolb from Cycle Toronto is “cautiously optimistic” council will vote to resume the EA, even if the cycling advocacy group would prefer an investigation that covers the Danforth as well.

“What we’re saying is ‘that’s not quite enough,’” he says. “We would much rather see the original terms of the EA brought back, which was for the entire corridor of Bloor-Danforth, and we are also pushing for a pilot project … we don’t need to wait around for a multi-year EA.”

Full story: Bloor Street bike lanes might get another chance.
