Crosswalk for Armadale Avenue at Bloor Street West
After three years, we are getting very close to having the City put in traffic lights at Armadale and Bloor. But the community needs to show its support to keep the momentum going.
City Transportation is aiming to bring a report to Etobicoke Community Council in November that supports the installation of traffic lights at the intersection of Armadale and Bloor. A traffic study was done last Fall for the intersection that showed that it more than met the requirements for such measures. The members of Community Council will have to vote on whether or not to install the lights. Councillor Doucette will be supporting these measures and given that Transportation's study supports this as well it is expected to pass.
We all know how dangerous it is to cross at this intersection. And yet, dozens of people do it every hour because the two closest intersections with traffic lights, are too great a distance.
Armadale is one of the exits for the subway and buses, so it is a busy point for pedestrian traffic.
We, the undersigned, who live, visit and work in the Bloor West area, support the installation of traffic lights at the intersection of Bloor St and Armadale, consistent with the needs identified by the community and the Transportation Study.
