  • View the proposed design
  • Discuss/provide comments

The project would include a road diet on Colborne Road where the existing 4-lanes would be converted to 3-lanes (two through lanes and a centre left turn lane).  Road diets improve road safety by aligning opposing left turn vehicles, reducing conflict points by eliminating lane shifting, and simplifying crossing for pedestrians.  Some on-street parking will be removed to accommodate the bike lanes.
