A giant bulb grows in curb at Glen Rd and Summerhill Ave

The City is building a large bulb in the curb at the southwest corner of Glen Rd. and Summerhill Ave. It’s apparently part of the Vision Zero scheme to make things safer for pedestrians. But the new alignment takes the curb well out into what was the southbound lane. Vehicles will now apparently creep by each other at crawl speed when entering or leaving Glen. In March, The Bulldog published pictures of road narrowing at intersections to the south. It seems Glen Rd. is being re-made in North Rosedale possibly through ratepayer petition, but that is speculation. This work also raises questions about the much wider intersection a block away at Douglas Drive and Summerhill, a frequent short cut for drivers heading to Glen Road south.
