Project Background

The City of Toronto’s Vision Zero Road Safety Plan is focused on reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by making our roads safer for everyone, especially vulnerable road users such as seniors, school children, and people walking and cycling.

 

State-of-good-repair work, including sewer and watermain replacements, road resurfacing, and road reconstruction, are scheduled in Kensington Market in 2022 and 2023. While the design work for 2022 has been finalized, the work in 2023 provides an opportunity to install additional safety improvements.

 

Project Goals

  1. Improve safety and accessibility for everyone
  2. Maintain access to all businesses, services and residences
