These are the 10 busiest intersections in Toronto

Where do you find yourself stuck in traffic? Probably everywhere, considering we live in Toronto. But today, Mayor John Tory announced the second phase of his plan to help curb congestion.

The city determined 10 congestion "hot spots" and aims to implement strategies - such as retiming traffic signals for peak periods - at these intersections. So where exactly are the 10 busiest intersections in Toronto? They're scattered all around the city.

  • Eglinton Avenue West and Martin Grove Road
  • Lawrence Avenue West and Black Creek Drive
  • St. Clair Avenue East and Mount Pleasant Road
  • Finch Avenue and Yonge Street
  • Sheppard Avenue and Yonge Street
  • Bloor Street East and Parliament Street
  • O'Connor Drive and Don Mills Road
  • Eastern Avenue and Carlaw Avenue
  • Finch Avenue East and Victoria Park Avenue
  • Kingston Road and Lawrence Avenue East

The city used a third party service to measure traffic at peak times against so-called free-flow conditions and came up with these rankings. Here's what's happening at each intersection - most of these improvements looks like they'll be complete some time next year.
