Preliminary Design for Town of Whitby

This page contains information on the preliminary design in the Town of Whitby. Scroll down to watch a narrated overview of the preliminary design in Whitby or scroll through the design drawings at your own pace.

Renderings have been developed to show how the corridor would look in the future with BRT.

A map indicating the five different corridor design segments for the Town of Whitby portion of the BRT project. Segment 1 is from Lake Ridge Road to Cochrane Street; the design proposes to widen the segment to add two dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain existing four lanes for general traffic. Segment 2 is from Cochrane Street to Byron Street; the design proposes to convert two general traffic lanes to dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain one general traffic lane in each direction. Segment 3 is from Byron Street to Green Street; the design proposes a transit mall, with general traffic restricted between Byron and Green/Perry Streets. The design includes wider sidewalks and business service areas. Segment 4 is from Green Street to Garden street; the design proposes to convert two general traffic lanes to dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain one general traffic lane in each direction. Segment 5 is from Garden Street to west of Thornton; the design proposes to widen the segment to add two dedicated centre-median transit lanes and maintain existing four lanes for general traffic.
