Kudos to TLC for creating this document!

Keeping the paths off Main and King seems wise in the short run. The more we can ease people into the idea of sharing the roads with bikes the better chance it has for success. Not to mention all the potential construction headaches along those roads when/if the LRT gets rolling.

Also I love that the Bay St. path goes past the proposed stadium site all the way to Bayfront Park. This is exactly what I'd like to see for a possible offshoot of the planned LRT B Line (maybe as a BRT between Bayfront and a Bay St B Line LRT station).

It's too bad that the Longwood Rd. overpass wouldn't be made wider to accommodate a bike lane, the 403 really cuts off any paths around Mac from the rest of the city. Especially since I imagine the university students there are more likely to use the paths.

Now for my own humble suggestions, - Extend the Hunter St. path east to tie into the Wellington line, and west to tie into the Locke St line. - Join the 2 Dundurn lines into a single path, or alternatively use New St. between Main and King.

Again kudos to the creators, the fact that you even have the estimated costs is brilliant.
