The intersection of Kipling, Bloor, and Dundas, known as “Six Points” is getting completely rebuilt to make it better for area residents and encourage development. This BlogTO article mentions that it will include “bike lanes on all major streets”.
That doesn’t seem to be *completely* true, as the city included these new bike lanes (below, in green) in their new 10 Year Cycling Network Plan (passed at City Council last June), and it does show little stumps of bike lanes on Bloor and Dundas (not really connected to other bike lanes, of course, because #toronto), but nothing on Kipling. There are “major corridor” studies in the works for Kipling and Bloor (yellow), but these won’t happen until at least 2018.
Here’s a list of what’s in store from the city:
- A new road network and at-grade intersection at Dundas, Bloor, and Kipling, with Bloor continuing across Kipling
- Improved pedestrian facilities including wide boulevards, trees, and street furniture, and improve access to Kipling Subway Station
- Improved cycling facilities including separated bike lanes installed on all major streets
- New land available for potential uses such as parkettes, public art installations, development, and other amenities
