Bloor St. bike lanes coming very soon

The long-awaited Bloor Street bike lanes are finally coming to fruition. On August 2, the city of Toronto will start construction on these lanes, which will run from Avenue to Shaw, as the Toronto Star reports today.

The lanes should be ready by mid-August. They're part of a pilot project and the city will reevaluate in 2017 to decide whether or not to keep them in place.

Construction should last for about two weeks and during that time, there will be no on-street parking and traffic will be down to one lane in each direction.
