Assessment of Creating a Northbound Left-Turn Lane at 150/152 Park Lawn Rd. [FULL DETAILS]

Posted in Road Work, Ward 5

 

 

Councillor Justin Di Ciano’s office asked the Transportation Dept. to determine the feasibility of creating a northbound left-turn lane to improve the access to the driveways at #152/150 Park Lawn Rd. (Tim Hortons and Starbucks). Staff have come back with their findings and note that a northbound left turn lane is not feasible at this time.

 
Here is why – background: 

 
In 2010, a driveway access was constructed on the west side of Park Lawn Road approximately 41 metres south of The Queensway, located at 515 The Queensway. In addition, a driveway access was constructed approximately 111 metres south of The Queensway, at the new property of 152 Park Lawn Road.   As part of conditions of site plan approval for 152/154/156 Park Lawn Road, a one story convenience restaurant with a drive-through component, and 515 The Queensway, a 523 square metre building, left-turn prohibitions were required on Park Lawn Road at the driveway accesses to these properties.   

City Council, at its meeting of March 8 and 9, 2011, adopted item EY4.27 the staff report titled “Park Lawn Road at 152/154/156 Park Lawn Road, and 515 The Queensway – Left-Turn Prohibitions”. Council approved enacting a “No Left Turn, Anytime” restriction for northbound traffic on Park Lawn Road, approximately 111 metres south of The Queensway, at the driveway access to 152/154/156 Park Lawn Road, and, enacting a “No Left Turn, Anytime” restriction for northbound traffic on Park Lawn Road, approximately 41 metres south of The Queensway, at the driveway access to 515 The Queensway.

This item was first considered by Etobicoke York Community Council on February 16, 2011 and was adopted with amendment.    Etobicoke York Community Council on October 10, 2012 and City Council on October 30, 2012, approved the staff recommendation to amend the northbound left-turn prohibition to the driveway at 152 Park Lawn Road which would permit turns at all times other than between 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., Monday to Friday.   

If we were to consider installing a northbound left turn lane on Park Lawn Road onto 152 Park Lawn Road, we would have to shorten the southbound curb lane (right turn lane) considerably. Our most recent counts show that there’s a very high demand for right turns at this location and therefore a northbound left turn lane is not feasible at this time.
