Status: Final Design Underway, Amendments requested by WPRA


March 2023: The city of Toronto is proposing a redesign of Scarlett Road from north of the bridge at St. Clair Ave to Dundas St.  In addition to widening the lanes, the city currently has in its design a proposed installation of a barrier at Gooch (east of the traffic lights at Dundas), to prevent westbound traffic on Dundas to turn left onto Gooch, and to prevent traffic exiting The Valley from making left turns from Gooch to go westbound on Dundas.  A sub-committee is in the process of communicating with city staff to remove the proposed barrier, among other issues of concern.
