mar The following is a list of the north–south arterial thoroughfares in the city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The city is organized in a grid pattern dating back to the plan laid out by Augustus Jones
Augustus Jones
between 1793 and 1797. Most streets are aligned in the north-south or east-west direction, based on the shoreline of Lake Ontario. In other words, major north–south roads are generally perpendicular to the Lake Ontario
Ontario
shoreline and major east–west roads are generally parallel to the lake's shoreline. The Toronto
Toronto
road system is also influenced by its topography as some roads are aligned with the old Lake Iroquois shoreline, or the deep valleys. Minor streets with documented history or etymology are listed in a separate section.

Location Bloor St – Bombay Ave (just north of Hwy 401) (continues south as Queen's Park Crescent)

Looking south on Avenue Road
Avenue Road
from St. Clair, 1937

There are several stories relating to the origin of Avenue Road. The most popular legend retells that of an early surveying team travelling west along what is now Bloor Street. Upon reaching the location of the intersection with Avenue Road
Avenue Road
today, the lead surveyor, a Scottish man, pointed north and proclaimed "Let's 'ave a new road here". But this is almost certainly apocryphal; the street was probably named for its tree-lined character.[1] Avenue Road
Avenue Road
is also a short residential street (1.5 km (0.93 mi)) that runs from Edgar Avenue north to Weldrick Road connecting the communities of Richvale and Yongehurst in Richmond Hill, Ontario. Although the Toronto
Toronto
section can align with the Richmond Hill sections if connected, the latter is a newer street not officially part of the historic Toronto
Toronto
roadway, unlike the disconnected York Region portions of its counterparts Kipling Avenue, Leslie Street
Leslie Street
and Woodbine Avenue.

Bathurst Street[edit]

Bathurst Street

Location Queens Quay West – Steeles Avenue
Steeles Avenue
West (continues north into Vaughan)

Main article: Bathurst Street (Toronto) Bathurst Street is named after Henry Bathurst, 3rd Earl Bathurst, who was Secretary of War during the reign of George IV. Henry's contributions to Toronto
Toronto
include organizing the successive waves of British settlers following the War of 1812, and granting the charter to the first university in the city, King's College. Bathurst originally only referred to the section south of Queen Street. In 1870, the section north of Queen Street became part of Bathurst Street. It was known until then as Crookshank's Lane, after Honourable George Crookshank. The road acted as a driveway to his 300-acre (1.2 km2) farm.[2]

Bay Street[edit]

Bay Street

Location Queen's Quay – Davenport Road (continues north as Davenport Road)

The intersection of Bay Street
Bay Street
and King Street is considered the heart of Canada's economy

Main article: Bay Street Bay Street, used to be known as Bear Street, supposedly a reference to a "noted chase given to a bear" by settlers in that area.[3] It is the centre of Toronto's Financial District and is often used as a metonym to refer to Canada's financial industry, similar to New York City's Wall Street
Wall Street
in the United States. Within the legal profession, the term Bay Street
Bay Street
is also used colloquially to refer to the large, full-service business law firms of Toronto, particularly the top-tier law firms known as the Seven Sisters. The street was officially named when the land it occupies was annexed by the first expansion of York. Bay travelled from Lake Ontario
Ontario
to Lot Street, now Queen Street West. North of Queen Street and travelling to College Street was Teraulay Street. Several disconnected side streets existed north of there to Davenport Road. In 1922, By-Law 9316 joined these streets together as far north as Scollard Street.[4] By-Law 9884, enacted on January 28, 1924, changed the name of Ketchum Avenue to Bay Street, officially extending it to Davenport Road.[5] The bend in Bay Street
Bay Street
south of Old City Hall reflects this history, serving as a terminating vista.

Bayview Avenue[edit]

Bayview Avenue

Main article: Bayview Avenue

Looking north along Bayview from Eglinton in 1910

Bayview Avenue, which used to be known as East York Avenue, was named in 1930 after the estate of Dr. James Stanley McLean, Bay View. The McLean House forms a part of the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre today.[6] Several notable estates were built along Bayview in the early 20th century, many of which still exist, since converted to a variety of public uses.

Bellamy Road[edit]

Bellamy Road

Location Kingston Road – Progress Avenue (continues as Corporate Drive)

Bellamy Road, previously Secord Road, is named for American author Edward Bellamy, who wrote Looking Backwards 2000–1887, about a utopian society. Settlers approached Scarborough Township for a parcel of land to start their own utopia. Although the request was not granted, the road along which they sought to establish their society came to be known as Bellamy Road. The CN grade separation on Eglinton, built in the early 1960s, split Bellamy Road
Bellamy Road
into two unconnected sections. Consequently, the township of Scarborough renamed the sections as North or South on May 29, 1964.[8] Bellamy Road
Bellamy Road
South begins at Kingston Road and proceeds north to just short of Eglinton Avenue. It is entirely a minor residential street. Bellamy Road
Bellamy Road
North resumes opposite the southern section, just north of the CN tracks. The road becomes Corporate Drive at Progress Avenue, proceeding towards the Scarborough Town Centre. Most of the northern section is residential, though the section between Ellesmere Road
Ellesmere Road
and Progress Avenue consists solely of multi-unit warehousing, many of which have been converted into places of worship.[9]

Residential and office development on Birchmount south of Eglinton Avenue

Birchmount Road
Birchmount Road
began as a concession line laid out by the surveyors of Upper Canada. For a long time, it remained a rural and little used route. In the 1920s, it was little more than a dirt path.[10] The southern part of Birchmount was one of the first parts of Toronto to see suburban development. This development was in the years immediately before and after the Second World War, and was thus not reflective of the car-centred design of much of Scarborough. Birchmount is notable for being the terminus of what has so far been the only TTC streetcar ever to travel into Scarborough. The Birchmount Loop was for several decades the turning loop for the Kingston Road streetcar.[11] The first lines in the region were built by the Toronto and Scarboro' Electric Railway, Light and Power Company. They were taken over by the TTC which ran streetcars to Birchmount until 1954. The loop remained in place until 1985, when a condominium was built on the site.[12] By the 1960s, Birchmount had been transformed into its current role as one of the main arterial roads for Scarborough.[13]

Beyond Toronto, Birchmount Road
Birchmount Road
continues firstly as a residential street to Denison Street, then from Denison to Highway 407 it cuts through commercial business parks. In 2011 the road was extended past 407 to Enterprise Boulevard to provide future access for the Downtown Markham residential community. A bridge (to cross over Rouge River) has been built by developers of the residential project in the area[14] to complete the road between Enterprise Boulevard and Highway 7 at Village Parkway.

Brimley Road
is of unknown origin. Beginning at Bluffer's Park
Bluffer's Park
at the foot of the Scarborough Bluffs,[16] Brimley runs through Scarborough, past Steeles Avenue
Steeles Avenue
and ends at 14th Avenue in Markham. The Scarborough portion is mainly residential with small strip plazas interspersed along the route. North of Finch Avenue
Finch Avenue
is Brimley Forest, a small patch of unaltered land. North of Steeles, Brimley weaves through the residential areas of the Milliken community of Markham, then ends at 14th Avenue and becomes Beckenridge Drive, which is a residential road. The section south of Sheppard was once interrupted at Highway 401. An C$11 million overpass and partial interchange of the freeway was built and opened on October 18, 1987 over the objections of many area residents concerned with increased traffic volume. In an attempt to address these concerns, it was initially restricted to transit buses and emergency vehicles.[17] After widely reported public pressure, Scarborough City Council voted February 18, 1988 to open the overpass to general traffic.[18] Proposals to modify the interchange are currently being examined as part of a larger analysis of Highway 401 through Scarborough.

Broadview Avenue[edit]

Broadview Avenue

Location Sunlight Park Road – Fernwood Gardens (continues east as O'Connor Drive)

Broadview Avenue, known as the Mill Road until 1884, was constructed in 1798 by Timothy Skinner, owner of several mills in Todmorden. The name is a reference to the broad view from the crest overlooking Riverdale Park. The road was extended in 1913 and 1922 by absorbing parts of Don Mills
Don Mills
Road as far north as O'Connor Drive.[19] In Toronto's East Chinatown, there are two signs at Gerrard Street East with the Chinese name of the street "百樂匯街".

Brown's Line[edit] See also: Ontario

Highway 27

Brown's Line

Location Lake Shore Boulevard – Evans Avenue (continues north as Highway 427)

Brown's Line was once the name by which the trail running north from Lake Ontario
Ontario
to Highway 9 was known. It originated as a trail, which had been blazed to define the western boundary of the 1805 Toronto Purchase. The trail was eventually referred as "Brown's Line" as the northern terminus was a small town, now known as Schomberg, but originally called Brownsville. Since the hamlet's main inhabitant was known by the surname of Brown (Yorkshire born Joseph Brown came to the area in 1831[20]), it seemed logical that the road which transported persons to Brown's Town should be referred to as Brown's Line. There was, however another Brownsville just south of Ingersoll, Ontario, also named for the family in that town. Since there was obviously confusion in the mail system, the logic required a name change, and Schomberg was created likely for Meinhardt Schomberg, 3rd Duke of Schomberg, a general under King William III of England. Before the construction of Highway 427, Brown's Line was part of Highway 27. Today, Brown's Line is a small southern portion of the road, which has grown into Highway 427 from the Queen Elizabeth Way
Queen Elizabeth Way
to Highway 401, and carries on as Highway 27, past Highway 9, and continues north to Barrie.

to the northern terminus at Woodbine Racetrack (at Entrance Road). The southern end of Carlingview is actually a series of highway ramps:

northbound traffic flows from an offramp from westbound Highway 401 southbound traffic enters the eastbound Highway 401.

Centennial Road[edit]

Centennial Road

Location Rolling Meadows – Ellesmere Road (interrupted by Highway 2A)

Centennial Road, despite travelling through an area that was developed during Canada's centennial, takes its name from the church at its intersection with Kingston Road. The church was named Centennial in honour of the 100th anniversary. Many of the streets along or near Centennial Road are named after the Fathers of Confederation.

Church Street[edit]

Church Street

Location South of The Esplanade - Yonge Street (Continues north as Davenport Avenue)

Looking south on Church St. from Wellesley

Church Street is so named because where St. James Cathedral sits upon today, at King Street and Church, was the site of the first church in York, a wooden building built in 1807 and referred to simply as "the church". Three incarnations sat on the site of the current cathedral; the dedication to St. James came in 1828, four years before the construction of a new stone church. This building burnt shortly after becoming a cathedral. A new cathedral was constructed, only to burn down in the Great Fire of 1849. John Strachan, first Anglican Bishop of Toronto
Toronto
after 1839, rebuilt the present cathedral in 1853 (the spire was not completed until 1874) in a Gothic Revival style.[21] The St. James Cathedral was the tallest structure in Toronto
Toronto
until the Royal York Hotel was completed in 1927.[dubious – discuss] At the corner of Church and Wellesley

Don Mills
Road, known by various names over time including The Mill Road and the Don Independent Road, is named for the many saw and grist mills that established near the Forks of the Don in the early 19th century. At the time the road began at Winchester Street and Parliament Street and crossed the Don River at Riverdale Park. The road rose onto the table lands along what is now the entrance to the northbound Don Valley Parkway
Don Valley Parkway
and followed Broadview north and O'Connor east before joining with the present-day Don Mills
Don Mills
Road. The road ended at the Mills for a time, until farmers to the north on the land between the river valleys opened a new road to provide an easier route to carry their yields to the St. Lawrence Market. The new road cut through established parcels of land, and came to be known as the Don Independent Road. This road extended as far north as York Mills Road. After the formation of Metropolitan Toronto, Don Mills
Don Mills
was designated as part of the municipal network of major roads. It was widened to four lanes, then extended north over Highway 401 to Sheppard in 1964. The "peanut" was constructed shortly thereafter, and Don Mills
Don Mills
was extended north of Steeles alongside suburban development in the 1970s. In 1987, the road was widened to six lanes alongside a recommendation to extend Leslie Street

Toronto
Police Service, has a maximum speed limit of 90 km/h (56 mph) and is 15.0 km (9.3 mi) in length.[24] The parkway was the second expressway to be built by Metropolitan Toronto
Toronto
(Metro). Planning for it began in 1954, the year of Metro's formation, the first section opened in 1961 and the entire route was completed by the end of 1966. South of Bloor Street, the expressway was constructed over existing roadways. North of Bloor Street, the expressway was built on a new alignment through the valley, requiring the removal of several hills, the rerouting of the Don River and the clearing of green space. North of Eglinton Avenue, the expressway follows the former Woodbine Avenue
Woodbine Avenue
right-of-way north to Highway 401. The parkway operates well beyond its intended capacity of 60,000 vehicles per day and is known for its daily traffic jams; some sections carry an average of 100,000 vehicles a day. Planned as part of a larger expressway network within Toronto, it was one of the few expressways built before the public opposition which cancelled many of the others.

Location Highview Avenue – Steeles Avenue
Steeles Avenue
East (continues north into Markham)

Kennedy Road, south of Ellesmere Road, circa 1925

Kennedy Road is named for the Kennedy family, one of the many early farming settlers in the 18th and 19th centuries (to which Premier Thomas Laird Kennedy
Thomas Laird Kennedy
belonged, but who settled in Mississauga), who settled along the early concession road. It is likely linked to Private John Kennedy of the 3rd Regiment of the York Militia (now The Queen's York Rangers (1st American Regiment) (RCAC)) who was granted 200 acres (0.81 km2) of land near Kennedy Road and Ellesmere Road.[34] The Toronto
Toronto
section of the road is mainly residential with high-rise apartment buildings. However, there is a section between Lawrence Avenue East and north of Sheppard Avenue
Sheppard Avenue
East, which is dominated by commercial plazas and malls, including Kennedy Commons.[9] North of Steeles Avenue, Kennedy Road continues as York Regional Road 3 north to the shore of Lake Simcoe. Sections from Steeles Avenue
Steeles Avenue
East to north of Denison Street and north of Highway 407 to just south of 16th Avenue were diversions from the original roadway. The latter was created due to opposition to proposed widening of the section running in historic Unionville in the 1960s, which is now referred to as Main Street Unionville (as well as a laneway to the east of the Main Street). The former is now called Old Kennedy Road and Fresno Court. The road is cut off north of Davis Drive in Newmarket, Ontario
Ontario
due to the Bendor and Grave Tract (York Regional Forest), resuming north of Herald Road to Lake Drive East on the shore of Lake Simcoe
Lake Simcoe
in Georgina. The road was mentioned in the song Energy by rapper Drake. It lends its name to two transit stations, Kennedy TTC station on Lines 2 and 3, and Kennedy GO Station
Kennedy GO Station
on the Stouffville commuter line. It was also mentioned in his 2016 album "Views"

Laird Drive[edit]

Laird Drive

Location Millwood Road – Glenvale Boulevard (continues southeast as Millwood Road)

Looking south on Laird Drive from Eglinton Avenue

The source of the origin of Laird Drive is disputed. One theory is that the street takes its name from Robert Laird Borden, Prime Minister of Canada
Canada
between 1911 and 1920. Borden, whose middle name is his mother's maiden name, led the country through the First World War. [36] Another theory is that the name comes from Alexander Laird, a Scottish-born banker, and general manager of Canadian Bank of Commerce in 1907. He played a large role in the creation of Leaside, where Laird Dr. is found.[37][38]

Originally the Markham and Scarborough Plank Road, the concession line that led to the town of Markham was an early plank road. Existing first between the Danforth Road
Danforth Road
(now Painted Post) and the town, it was later extended south to Kingston Road and north to Stouffville. Alongside the construction of the Toronto
Toronto
Bypass (now Highway 401), Highway 48 was extended south, from near Beaverton, to where Markham Road would intersect the new "superhighway". It was originally intended to be upgraded to a freeway that would wrap around the eastern side of Lake Simcoe
Lake Simcoe
and end in Orillia
Orillia
or north of Sutherland. However, with the construction of the Don Valley Parkway, Woodbine Avenue would be chosen in its place, becoming Highway 404. The Toronto Transit Commission's 102 Markham Rd provides service along the length of the road. It operates from Warden Station on Line 2 Bloor–Danforth and terminates at Steeles Avenue
Steeles Avenue
in Toronto, and on its 102D branch terminates at Major Mackenzie Drive
