In the spring of 2014, I wrote about the stretch of the Waterfront Trail between Norris Crescent and First Street. This is really the only part of the trail that's not off-road, not on quiet side streets and doesn't have a designated bike lane.
I followed that entry up with an update in July of 2014. I contacted my counsellor about it, and he told me they were looking at it. in fact, there was a study done, and they were actually looking at it.
Today, in a tweet from @GraphicMatt, I see the light. An on-street separated bikeway on Lake Shore Blvd. connecting the Waterfront Trail between Norris Crescent and First Street will be installed next year. This is great news.
