About Clark Avenue Cycle Tracks
In recognition for it's contributions to sustainable transportation, the Clark Avenue project received $2.05 million in provincial and regional funding through the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling program as well as Pedestrian and Cycling Municipal Partnership program. Clark Avenue was also selected as one of six finalists for the 2021 Transportation Association of Canada Sustainable Mobility Award.
Now complete, Clark Avenue connects the surrounding neighbourhood to:
- schools, parks, libraries, community centres, places of worship, shopping and more
- the 15-kilometre-long Bartley Smith Greenway and Vaughan Super Trail at the westerly limit
- the proposed 7.4-kilometre Yonge North Subway Extension Project and future active transportation facilities along Yonge Street at the easterly limit
- 4.5 kilometres of dedicated bus lanes, raised cycle tracks and widened sidewalks along Centre and Bathurst streets
- existing buffered bike lanes on Dufferin Street and other planned cycle tracks along New Westminster Drive, Atkinson Avenue and Hilda Avenue.
