Toronto's Dundas St. East bicycle lanes help cyclists feel safer when traveling on the road. Unfortunately, these bicycle lanes end at Kingston Road, a major arterial roadway with high volumes of fast moving motor vehicle traffic. When cycling westbound, road users are able to access Dundas St. E from Dixon Ave., however, because Dixon Ave. is designated as a one way street, it is currently not lawful to travel in an eastbound direction on this roadway.
A short stretch of eastbound-only bicycle lane on Dixon Ave. would allow for legal two-way travel by bicycles. Bicycle lanes which are painted with a yellow line (instead of a white line) allow cyclists to legally travel two ways on a street. Dixon Ave. would remain one-way for road users who are not cycling.
East end cyclists, please come out to support this initiative to enhance cycling safety in Ward 32!
