Public drop-in event to discuss options for cycle tracks for Richmond Street, Adelaide Street and Wellington Street
  
Information about potential options for cycle tracks - physically separated bike lanes - on Richmond Street, Adelaide Street and Wellington Street in Toronto will be on display on June 25 and 26 in the rotunda of Toronto City Hall.

A formal presentation of the information about the study will be held on June 25 at 6 p.m. On both days, information will be on display from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and staff will be available to answer questions from 3 to 8 p.m.

"This is the first opportunity for the public to look at the options being considered for cycle tracks within the Richmond/Adelaide corridor, including Wellington," said Councillor Denzil Minnan-Wong (Ward 34 Don Valley East), Chair of the City of Toronto Public Works and Infrastructure Committee. "Our goal is to create a network, so we're looking forward to implementing more cycle tracks within this key east/west route."

Information about options for a north-south cycling connection between the existing Beverly Street bike lanes and the waterfront using Peter Street or Simcoe Street will also be reviewed.

Cycle tracks are bicycle lanes that are separated from motor vehicle traffic by a physical barrier such as planters, a concrete island or a curb. The City introduced its first cycle track last December along Sherbourne Street, between Bloor Street and King Street as the first phase of a 14-kilometre network of cycle tracks planned for the downtown area over the next few years.

More information about the project is available at http://www.toronto.ca/cycling/richmond-adelaide/
