Study Overview

The Avenue Road Study will look at options for using the space available to best serve all road users. It will also take into consideration the impact of any potential changes on the city-wide road network and impacts to adjacent local streets.

Throughout the study and in consultation with the community, the City will determine what changes can be implemented in the short to medium term, in advance of full reconstruction of the road.

With full reconstruction of Avenue Road currently forecasted to take place more than ten years from now, implementing short to medium term improvements will allow the City to monitor change and help inform a future study to determine major, permanent design changes. 

Potential Changes
A range of options will be considered to improve safety, mobility choices and streetscape on Avenue Road. Changes could include:

Increased pedestrian spaceReduced speed limits and/or number of motor vehicle lanesNew cycling facilities and/or improved wayfinding to alternative routesImproved connections to adjacent public spaces and key local destinationsNew street furniture, green infrastructure and patiosModifications to on-street pick up and drop off areas and short term parkingOther ideas and suggestions arising from the study
