#CodeRedTO takes your questions and finds answers! This month: To widen the road and maintain two lanes of traffic in both directions, is land required for the Sheppard East LRT from any Cemeteries?
We spoke to both the TTC and Metrolinx, and here’s their response:
At this time, land is not required from any cemeteries for the widening of Sheppard Ave East. For example, at the cemetery at Knox United, the line has been designed to veer slightly to the south so that it minimizes any impact to the church property. There will still be enough room on the north side of Sheppard, east of Midland Ave to have a sidewalk and maintain the church property. This is a very historic part of Scarborough and it will be treated with great sensitivity. Here is a slide that depicts the alignment at Midland Ave and Sheppard Ave East (from Sept 2010)
