New traffic rules at Bayview & Soudan

In the past few years many area residents have voiced concerns about the safety of the intersection at Bayview and Soudan Aves., particularly for seniors, students and families with young children crossing at the crosswalk.  A traffic study conducted by City of Toronto Transportation Services in 2016 confirmed the need for changes in traffic flow. As a result, both Soudan Ave. and Parkhurst Bld. side streets have new signs allowing only right turns onto Bayview Ave. The new traffic rules apply on weekdays between 7 and 9 a.m. and 3 and 7 p.m.
