Council approves redesign of busy downtown Yonge St. for pedestrians

For the first time in more than 100 years, city council has signed off on a possible redesign for one of the city’s most iconic stretches of road.

Yonge St. between Carlton and Queen Sts — heavily favoured by pedestrians — is proposed to see car lanes reduced to just two and widened sidewalk space with bike lanes between College and Gerrard Sts, added seating, planting and gates to allow for road closures in pedestrian “priority zones” in several blocks.
