John Street Cultural Corridor - Updates
Phase 1 of construction on the John Street Cultural Corridor is now underway! A pedestrian-focused design, the project includes the elimination of 2 lanes of traffic, narrower lanes, greatly expanded sidewalks and the removal of curbs, so there is no barrier between the road and pedestrian realm. These key design components, in addition to upgraded lighting provided by the local Business Improvement Area, new event spaces at intersections, and landscaping and pavement treatments, come together to create a slower, safer space for everyone.
Construction is currently underway to relocate underground utilities including Toronto Hydro, making way for the surface improvements along the length of the cultural corridor to follow.
