Cumberland should have a barriers at Sherman preventing vehicles from cutting through from Lawrence Road to Charlton Avenue(local traffic only). Leaving more space on the road for runners cyclists and people out walking their dogs.
During the pandemic Cumberland has become a critical pedestrian and cyclist corridor. A high volume of people crowd the sidewalk and spill out onto the street in order to maintain proper distance. Family's riding bikes travel from the rail trail along Cumberland to Gage park and contend with impatient drivers that give little space when aggressively passing between Stop signs.
Why do we need another East-West cut through for car traffic? Aren't Main, King, Cannon, Wilson, Delaware, Barton, and Burlington enough?
Widen the area for passengers to wait for the bus. This can be done by taking some space from the parking lot in behind.

Install a pedestrian crossover so pedestrians can safely cross here rather than having to go to either Tisdale or Wentworth.
Install a pedestrian cross-over at the foot of the stairs to the rail trail. Also consider changing to two-way so that cars will actually come to a complete stop at Young and Victoria.
A pedestrian crossing or full light with pedestrain crosswalk is need.
Widen the sidewalk on the north side. Consider changing to two-way traffic. Needs traffic calming - cars race to get to the stop sign at Victoria (which they then ignore).
Make part of Barton pedestrian only for the summer months. Widen sidewalks through BIA.
Best place to safely walk is on the bike lanes - Need more room for pedestrians.
From the 403 ramps to Plains Rd there is buffer space to add concrete barrier protection to the bike lanes to create safe shared spaces. Sidewalks in this area are narrow and biking beside this heavy traffic with no protection is dangerous.
Add concrete barriers to the buffer space of the York Blvd Bike lanes from Dundurn to Hess.
Considering removing on street parking on Longwood's east side to convert into a pedestrian space/shared space from Marion to Franklin. Currently this street is heavily trafficked by families and the narrow sidewalks make users have to enter the street to avoid others. The northbound bikelane is disrupted by parking making it unsafe for children. This street serves as an important connection to both the Waterfront Trail and the Food Basics.
Narrow Northbound traffic to 1 lane converting 1 lane to shared pedestrian/cyclist space from Frid St to Main St. Currently there is only one narrow sidewalk and I have had to step onto the busy street to get around a stroller here. Furthermore, the bike lanes do not continue over the bridge and cyclists must navigate aggressive traffic.
Remove on street parking to create protected multi-use space for cyclists/pedestrians. This is a highly trafficked street with narrow sidewalks. It also serves as an important connection to the rail trail
Convert one eastbound lane of Cootes Dr to a protected multiuse space. This could connect Cootes Dr Trail to Dundas safely as currently users must navigate narrow sidewalks on Cootes from Dundas St to Main St and cyclists must merge with traffic. This should connect to a pedestrian/cyclist lane on King St through Dundas that could be created from removing on street parking.
Consider narrowing Cootes Dr Southbound to 2 lanes converting 3rd lane to cyclist/pedestrian space. South of Main St, Leland could be narrowed to create a cyclist/pedestrian space on the west side of the street to connect Cootes to the Rail Trail. Currently this is a heavily trafficked area because of its many connections but sidewalks are narrow and cyclists must navigate traffic.
Remove Parking on (at least one side of) King st to create a protected cyclist/pedestrian space. On Cootes dr, traffic should be narrowed by one lane to connect this path to the Cootes trail
Fully separate and add protection to these bike lanes. They could be an important access route to HHS hospitals on Barton but currently are not visibly separate from traffic.
Convert one lane of traffic to protected active transportation space using concrete curbs or barriers. Outside a Fortinos, this is a heavily traffic block with thin sidewalks. This block is also a truck route and has very poor asphalt making it extremely unsafe for cyclists connecting the Dundurn bike lanes north of King and south of Main.
Pedestrian activated crosswalk or even yield signal for cyclists and pedestrians to safely cross onto/off of the protected King St bridge. An active transportation space is only as safe as its weakest link.
Expand side walk, convert a lane of traffic.
Better separation between cycle and traffic lanes.
Widen side walk - too narrow. Need more space with speeding cars.
Create pedestrian only dining area.
Better separation barriers between cycle and traffic lanes.
Permanent seating area with semi-circular bench seating, child-friendly sculptures and murals, solar lights, accessibility pathing, and well-protected security devices for those who feel endangered after hours would safely repurpose this space and make it useable to the whole public.
Extend the West 5th bike lanes north of Mohawk and connect them to the forthcoming Claremont Access bike lanes.
Wellington and Victoria are both overbuilt for the volume of traffic they carry. Remove one lane on each to create north-south bike lanes.
Pedestrianize during school hours
Alternate "safer" bike route connecting Strathcona to Downtown.
Temporarily close one lane of traffic on each side of Aberdeen Ave for Cyclists and Pedestrians. These sidewalks are heavily traffic by employees of St.Joes walking to work. At the present, there is no way to keep distance from one another.
Use that space to create wider sidewalks or multi use paths for East west pedestrian walking.
Replace failed pedestrian crossing paint. Curb cuts need to be more accessible at these crossings. Remove beg buttons for crossing.
Bike lane to ride downtown without being on crowded road
Dedicate lane space to help with active transportation links between mountain and downtown.
Repurpose lane space to give more options for pedestrians and cyclists to move between upper and lower city.
Provide lane space to help with active transportation between the mountain and lower city employment areas.
Missing bike lanes.
Demolish and start over?
Road diet for Ottawa and controlled pedestrian crossing.
Reduce car lanes on Main and widen sidewalks (blind corner not up to accessibility standards)
With the closure of Centennial Park, there are no safe bicycle connections through this stretch of North Service Road.
Close to traffic for restaurant patios.
Reduce one lane on each side to give more width on sidewalks to pedestrians.
Reduce one lane on each side to give more width on sidewalks for pedestrians.
Close a section of the street to traffic for the summer.
Close to traffic for the summer.
Close to traffic!
Make pedestrian only
Allow parking on both sides of the street to slow traffic.
Make this a pedestrian area.
