Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Notice of Study Completion
Issue Date: July 4, 2019

The City of Toronto has completed a Transportation Master Plan (TMP) to examine solutions to relieve traffic congestion, improve connections for pedestrians and cyclists, and increase access to public transit (including the future St.Clair-Old Weston SmartTrack Station), in the area of St. Clair Avenue West, between Keele Street and Old Weston Road. The TMP study followed the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Study (Schedule C). The Ministry of Infrastructure (MOI) Public Work Class EA process was also followed in support of the purchase of MOI owned land required for the recommended improvements.

The recommendations as documented in the TMP are to:

  1. Widen St. Clair Avenue West
  2. Extend Gunns Road to Union Street
  3. Extend Keele Street to meet the Gunns Road Extension
  4. Extend Davenport Road to Union Street
