new queens quay

This is what the new Queens Quay looks like in Toronto

After years of construction and commuter nightmares, the new Queens Quay has officially opened in Toronto, just in time for summer and the Pan Am Games. While the street looked anything but close to completion just a few months ago, crews managed to pull it (almost) all together for the big reveal.

The revitalized street is highlighted by a new bike lane that stretches from Stadium Rd. all the way to Sugar Beach, which makes for a far safer ride across the waterfront but also a prettier one. The promenade on the south side of the streets has been beautified and will certainly encourage more visits to the lake. When you see a new streetcar rolling along the Quay, the whole thing looks rather European.
