Nightly Construction on Bloor Street W., August 16 & Friday August 17, 2018. 8 p.m. – 6 a.m.

Posted in Construction Notices, Road Work, Ward 5

 

 

A message from the Six Points Construction Team: 

Construction will be conducted between the hours of 8 p.m. – 6 a.m. in the area of Bloor Street and Dunbloor Road, and will require a lane reduction along Bloor Street to access portions of the site for underground work. This work includes the installation of a gas distribution line. No local natural gas services will be effected by this work.

 

Due to the current limited capacity of Bloor St (due to ongoing construction) and high traffic during the day, work will be conducted at night. All efforts will be made to reduce noise, but in some cases this may be unavoidable. East/west vehicular travel along Bloor St will be maintained via one active lane of flagged traffic to allow motorists to travel along Bloor Street. The use of alternate travel routes (e.g. Dundas Street) is encouraged.

                                                                                                                                                                                

We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause.

Leading Pedestrian Signals & Ward 5 Locations

Posted in City Wide

 

 

The Leading Pedestrian Interval (LPI) program provides an advanced walk signal so that pedestrians begin to cross the street before vehicles get a green signal.

The purpose of LPI is to provide pedestrians an advantage over turning vehicles at intersections where it is determined that pedestrians, wishing to enter the crosswalk, were being hindered by aggressive right turns.

The LPI is used to improve motorist yielding behaviour toward pedestrians in a crosswalk. The LPI is particularly helpful for older pedestrians, as they may take longer to occupy the crosswalk following the start of a “walk” indication, making them less obvious to turning motorists.

Taken from the City of Toronto website

 

Ward 5 has four LPI’s! Those locations are:

Dundas St W & Mabelle Ave

Islington Ave & Norseman St

Islington Ave & Jutland Rd

The East Mall & Yard Rd
