Bloor and Gardenvale

Here’s a massive sneckdown from Matt Worona, at the intersection of Bloor West and Alberfoyle Crescent/Gardenvale Rd in Etobicoke, between Islington and Royal York.

Here’s what the intersection looks like from above. Matt was looking at the intersection from the northwest corner, indicated by the yellow angle marker.

What was that gigantic sneckdown doing on the northwest corner? Let’s compare the turn radii of Alberfoyle and Gardenvale.

Alberfoyle, coming in from the north, is a full lane width wider than Gardenvale!

What to do? Equalize the corners, including the other side of Alberfoyle, and extend the medians through the pedestrian crossing to create safety islands.
