City:
Toronto
Colborne Street
Colborne from Church to Leader Lane MAY be fixed up this fall but more likely in spring 2022. Leader Lane from King to Colborne will be done at same time and there are plans to fully pedestrianise Leader Lane south from Colborne to Wellington at same time too. Colborne from Leader Lane to Yonge will, supposedly, be done when the new development at corner of Yonge is finished (it's not started yet so that means 5+ years more.)

Yes, as wonderful as it is to see downtown intensify I'm most looking forward to the re-design of our roads and sidewalks. An apron of amenities/retail lining the sidewalk, fewer lanes of traffic, tripling the width of sidewalks, proper separated bike lanes, heavy landscaping, attractive lamp posts, & quality paving. Many of our 4 lane roads will have to be 2 lanes eventually.

It's going to be fantastic when King, Queen, Dundas, Church, Parliament, and parts of Yonge get re-built as 2 lane roads with no street parking. The existence of street parking on Bloor in the Annex is a big negative. There just isn't room for a decent sized sidewalk + street parking. Retail there is suffering because of it. Hopefully they fix it soon.
