Steeles Avenue East Bridge Public Meeting March 23, 2016 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Environmental Assessment Notice of Commencement & Public Event Study Overview

The City of Toronto has initiated a study to evaluate options for a grade separation between

Steeles Avenue East and the Stouffville GO Transit Rail Corridor (east of Kennedy Road).

Currently the level crossing of the railway tracks restricts the movement of pedestrians, cyclists, transit and vehicles. A grade separation would provide a bridge (road over rail or road under rail) to eliminate vehicle and train conflicts and help improve traffic flow, safety, and area connections for all users. The study will also consider:

  • Widening of Steeles Avenue East from Kennedy Road to Midland Avenue
  • Accommodating pedestrian, cycling and multi-use facilities
