Sheppard Avenue Road
Reconstruction

Sheppard Avenue East is in need of road resurfacing and reconstruction due to the poor condition of the road. In Toronto, roads are resurfaced every 25 to 35 years and reconstructed every 50-100 years, presenting a unique once-in-a-generation opportunity for the City to improve the design of the street with consideration to updated policies and design guidelines, as well as future needs of the community.

The following changes are planned along Sheppard Avenue East from Bayview Avenue to Leslie Street:

  • Reallocation of some vehicular lanes and narrowed lane widths to improve safety.

  • Intersection improvements, including protected intersection elements at signalized intersections.

  • Widened sidewalks and enhanced crossings to improve the experience of people walking and to ensure compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA).

  • New transit stop features, including accessible bus stops, new transit shelters and seating areas.

  • Raised uni-directional (one-way) cycle tracks on the north and south side of the road.

  • New plantings and green infrastructure.

Thank you to everyone in the community who has taken the time to share their feedback on the proposed plan for the road reconstruction on Sheppard Avenue. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin this year. We will share more updates on this website as they become available. For more information about the project, visit the City’s website below:
