The first streets in the West Don Lands are now open with the extension of Bayview Avenue south to Lawren Harris Square, which connects to Lower River Street back to King Street. River Street between King Street and Queen Street are closed indefinitely for reconfiguration of the roadway and removal of the Bayview Avenue ramp.

The CRBA is working with the City of Toronto to ensure that the reconfiguration of River Street provides an attractive gateway into the Corktown community (see earlier post).

The opening of the new streets gives the first public opportunity for Torontonians to see the new public spaces being built in the West Don Lands up close, including Don River Park, River Square, and Underpass Park.
