ACTION

Ward:13

Left-Turn Prohibition – Runnymede Road at Maria Street
Origin
(March 11, 2016) Report from the Director, Transportation Services – Etobicoke York District
Recommendations
Transportation Services recommends that:

1. City Council approve enacting a “No Left Turn, 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday” restriction for southbound traffic on Runnymede Road at Maria Street.
Summary
The purpose of this report is to obtain approval to prohibit southbound left-turns from Runnymede Road onto Maria Street between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday.

This proposed turn restriction addresses concerns from area residents with respect to transient (short-cut) traffic on Maria Street.

As Runnymede Road is a transit route, this matter requires the approval of City Council. Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) staff has been advised of the issue and have not objected to the recommendations.
Financial Impact
The estimated cost for the supply and installation of the related signage is $200.00. These funds are included within the Transportation Services 2016 Operating Budget.
