19 Aug Pop-up Demonstration on Safe Street Design Planned for Danforth
On a normal day on Danforth Avenue in Toronto, dozens of cars swerve by busy restaurants and shops. Pedestrians emerge from buses and subway stations. Cyclists navigate between moving vehicles and the cars parked along the curb.
For one weekend this August, the street will be transformed. A bike lane will appear, separated from the cars by planters. The sidewalk will expand to accommodate more pedestrians. Where there was once space for parked vehicles, a makeshift stage with live performances will pop up.
