Downtown Yonge Makeover Finalized, Heads to February Council Vote

Hot on the heels of City Council's approval of the redesign of Yonge Street in North York, another section of the important Toronto artery looks set to follow in its footsteps with a complete transformation in the downtown core. The Yonge TOmorrow initiative appeared before the Infrastructure and Environment Committee on January 11 and was recommended for adoption, clearing the way for it to move on to a Council vote on February 2. The plan seeks to transform the section of Yonge between Queen Street and College/Carlton Streets into a highly pedestrianized road, removing the majority of vehicular traffic along the stretch and nearly doubling the sidewalk space with a pedestrian-friendly design.
