Dovercourt Road Reconstruction and Safety Improvements

Work is set to begin at the end of September on the Dovercourt Road reconstruction and safety improvements. 

I have heard many traffic safety concerns with respect to Dovercourt Road, and have been working closely with Councillor Ana Bailão to ensure we can build a safer street on Dovercourt.

The construction improvements between Sudbury Street and College Street will include: watermain replacement; sidewalk replacement; improving intersections to reduce pedestrian crossing distances and slow traffic turning right; raising curb heights so it is more difficult for vehicles to mount the curb and encroach on pedestrian space; and installing speed humps to help calm traffic.

More information about the safety improvements and public consultation process can be found at toronto.ca/dovercourt, and the construction notice can be viewed here
