Dan Harris sent along the response he received from city staff regarding the traffic islands on Church St. It’s good-ish news.
Staff say that there won’t be traffic islands, which—in my opinion—is a blessing. The streets are too narrow.
City staff also said that they had hoped to alternate the placement of islands on the south and north sides of the street but “Unfortunately this was not possible as the TTC required two buses to be able to pass each other at the same time”.
They also left open the possibility that the the islands could be better placed in the future when the road is repaved: “with any future road rehabilitation, the islands can be incorporated, like on Riverside Drive.”
