On February 2, City Council approved the final report on a revitalized downtown Yonge Street, dubbed YongeTOmorrow.
YongeTOmorrow proposes a full and flexible redesign of the street from Queen Street north to College Street, where sidewalks will be expanded, vehicle lanes modified, restaurant patios extended and street furniture and streetscape elements added.
The Yonge TOmorrow Environmental Study Report (ESR) will now be finalized and submitted to the Ontario Ministry of Environment Conservation and Parks and will be subject to a 30-day public review period. Following provincial approval, the project will then develop a detailed design along with construction phasing and schedules. Construction is expected to start in 2023.
Looking further forward, the redesign of Yonge Street north between College Street and Davenport Road, as well as the redesign of Church Street are one step closer.
