Oxford Street / Wharncliffe Road Intersection Improvements

The City is planning improvements at the intersection of Oxford Street and Wharncliffe Road to add eastbound and westbound transit queue jump lanes on Oxford Street. A queue jump lane is a transit-only bus lane that provides traffic signal priority for bus merging. Queue jump lanes can improve transit reliability and facilitate better traffic flow.
