Browns Line

Browns Line

Browns Line is a short arterial route that only spans 2 kilometers between Evans Avenue and Lake Shore Boulevard in Etobicoke, Ontario, now part of Toronto. The road is named for local farmer Joseph Brown, who owned farmland along the Etobicoke Creek from Dundas Street to Bloor Street. [ [http://www.etobicokehistorical.com/Stories/Alderwood/body_alderwood.html Alderwood] ]

It is an important north-south artery under the jurisdiction of the City of Toronto, and extends from the ramps at the southerly end of Provincial Highway 427 at its intersection with the Queen Elizabeth Way and Gardiner Expressway, and travels south to connect to Lake Shore Boulevard in the neighbourhood of Long Branch.

Community

Browns Line is the core, and the main shopping street, for the neighbourhood of Alderwood. Civic improvements were undertaken in 2001 to create a gateway to the waterfront with a 24 metre high tower marking the southerly terminus of Browns Line.

Transit along Browns Line is provided by the TTC's 123 and 123C Shorncliff and 110A Islington South bus routes, which run from Long Branch Loop to Kipling station and Islington station, respectively.
