ROAD RESURFACING ON EGLINTON AVENUE WEST
The City of Toronto started resurfacing Eglinton Avenue West. The contractor has completed the work from 100 metres east of Martin
Grove Road, to Islington Avenue – phase 1 and 2.
The contractor will return in the spring of 2018 to complete the remaining phases of work. This work is being done because our
inspection of the road shows that it needs repaving and sections of damaged curb and sidewalk need to be replaced to bring them to a
state of good repair. A new sidewalk will be added on the north side of Eglinton Avenue West between Jane Street and Scarlett Road.
This work is part of the Council-approved 2017 Capital Works Program to renew aging city roads and sidewalk for current and future
needs. A new update will be distributed before work starts in the Spring.

CITY INTRODUCES NEW SCHOOL SAFETY ZONES
The safety zones have new features aimed at improving the safety of children walking to school and are part of the City’s $80-million Vision Zero Road Safety Plan and overall traffic safety measures.
The School Safety Zones feature new school zone safety signs with flashing beacons, school zone pavement stencils, "Watch your speed" driver feedback signs and zebra markings at school crosswalks. In addition, City staff will be extending the coverage of enhanced pavement markings up to 250 metres away from school buildings to help encourage active transportation to school, which includes walking or biking. Ward 4 recently received a new School Safety Zone near Father Serra Catholic Elementary School at 111 Sun Row Dr.
"The safety of all pedestrians, but particularly children, must be a priority in this city,” said Mayor Tory. "Through the School Safety Zone program, we have looked at how children travel to school and have added measures to keep them safe on their journey."
The City's Vision Zero Road Safety Plan, approved by Toronto City Council in 2016, contains a series of measures and strategies aimed at eliminating deaths and serious injuries on Toronto streets as well as improving safety for all road users.
The City's Vision Zero website includes a mapping tool showing safety measures in place and future planned work as well as safety tips for all road users aimed at making streets safer:
