TORONTO – Could Yonge Street — the longest road in the world and a major Toronto artery for motorists — become a key thoroughfare for the city’s cyclists?
Cycle Toronto, city councillors and city staff will discuss putting bike lanes on the entire Toronto-area Yonge corridor — from Lake Ontario to Steeles Avenue — during a Wednesday-evening workshop.
There are currently bike lanes on a small stretch of the world’s longest street, between Front Street and Queens Quay.
Councillors Josh Matlow, Karen Stintz and Kristyn Wong-Tam are all expected to attend the workshop at Northern District Public Library, near Yonge and Eglinton Avenue.
Cycle Toronto says bikes could be the answer to overcrowding on the Yonge subway as well as a way to reduce congestion.
