Evergreen Brick Works Helps Usher In Cycling Infrastructure on Bayview

Don Valley Brick Works - Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Evergreen Brick Works recently held their grand opening, and while events and a market have been held at the site all summer, access by bicycle has been somewhat limited.

Bayview, a street where the speed limit increases to 70 km/h (meaning 90 km/h to far too many drivers) in front of the Brick Works also has crumbling shoulders. Certainly an uninviting situation for anyone on two wheels.

However, the revitalization of the once abandoned site is bringing in cycling and pedestrian infrastructure. In an e-mail from Dave Dunn of Cycling Infrastructure and Programs for the City of Toronto he explained that a new bi-directional and physically separated multi-use path will now connect the Rosedale Valley Drive multi-use trail to the Brick Works site. As well, a connection to Pottery Road will allow cyclists and pedestrians to access the site from the Lower Don Trail.

For added safety, Jersey barriers will be installed along Bayview separating cycling and pedestrian traffic, and the wooden bridge that runs under the Bayview access to the Don Valley Parkway is being repaired.

Here’s a Google Map created by Christina Bouchard detailing the changes currently being installed along Bayview (click for more details):

  3. I was riding up Bayview this morning and the white lines for the shoulder have been painted. The City is also replacing a wood footbridge on the section that goes under the Bloor-DVP connection.

  4. It is a work in progress, but we really want to promote people-powered transportation.

    We just posted new trail maps for those who want to cycle or walk to Evergreen Brick Works, check them out: http://ebw.evergreen.ca/visit/bike/

  5. Sweet. Much needed infrastructure in this area. :)

  6. You know, the lower Don bike path passes by the Brickworks, only a few feet from the entrance. The problem is, the path is on the east side of the Don river. How about a little bridge out to Bayview, right at the Brickworks entrance? That would link the Moore park ravine directly to the the path.
