The city core takes in over 100,000 pedestrians daily, along with special events, such as lengthy parades and marches. The section from College Street to Gerrard is now undergoing revitalization. It’s replacing an aging water main that runs below Yonge Street. Thousands of new condo units have been or are being, built in and around the strip, and every one of them requires running water. In the above section (off the image) a permanent spine occupies the middle of this part of the street – the equivalent of two established traffic lanes. Enlarged sidewalks are very much needed, and there’ll be a minimum of 4 metres’ widening on each side. As you can tell Downtown is happening.
