Streets are essential to Toronto physical, social and environmental infrastructure. Toronto has about 5,600 km of streets, roughly the total distance from Toronto to Whitehorse as its shown in Toronto streets map. Almost one quarter of Toronto total land area is covered by streets. Streets are also about more than simply travelling from one place to another.
Streets form a vital part of Toronto water infrastructure (see Toronto streets map). When it rains, street trees, landscaping and other ‘green infrastructure’ help absorb stormwater so it does not have to be treated at our wastewater treatment plants, and when large storms occur the streets themselves are designed to act like streams, guiding stormwater away from buildings that could flood.

The grid of major city streets was laid out by the concession road system, in which major arterial roads are approximately two kilometres apart. Major east-west arterial roads are generally parallel with the Lake Ontario shoreline, and major north-south arterial roads are roughly perpendicular to the shoreline as you can see in Toronto roads map. This arrangement is sometimes broken by geographical accidents, most notably the Don River ravines.
Vaughan Road in Toronto is named after the Township (later City) of Vaughan, which in turn was named after Benjamin Vaughan, a British commissioner whose role was to smooth negotiations between Britain and the United States during the drafting of the Treaty of Paris in 1783. Bermondsey Road is named for the administrative borough in London, England. Albion Road was created as a private road for French teacher Jean du Petit Pont de la Haye to his estate in the area (see Toronto roads map).
The Toronto road system is influenced by its topography as some roads are aligned with the old Lake Iroquois shoreline, or the deep valleys. Major roads, which do not conform to the grid pattern and minor streets with documented history or etymology. Most major roads in Toronto are aligned in the north-south or east-west direction, based on the shoreline of Lake Ontario as its shown in Toronto roads map. In other words, major north–south roads are generally perpendicular to the Lake Ontario shoreline and major east–west roads are generally parallel to the lake's shoreline.
