Posted at 12:47h in News
A group of environmental and road safety advocates are calling on Mayor John Tory to support a proposed project that would reduce lanes and add a raised bike path on a three-kilometre section of Yonge Street north of Sheppard Avenue.
The plan, called “Transform Yonge,” which is being recommended by city staff, emerged from a study called the “REimagining Yonge” project.
In an open letter to the mayor sent out on Tuesday morning, 8 80 Cities, a non-profit community organization, along with several other community advocates, says the proposed plan is “what the city needs.”
