More lane closures for Davis Drive rapidway project,
October 22 to 26



Metrolinx and York Region contractors continue the project to build a rapidway — bus-only lanes in the centre of the roadway — along Davis Drive in Newmarket.


Starting Monday, October 22 they’ll be blocking two eastbound lanes on the south side of Davis Drive between Parkside Drive and Lorne Avenue. From 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. each day, large equipment will be on the work site, but two-way traffic will continue along Davis Drive at all times.

The work blocks the south sidewalk on Davis between Parkside and Lorne. Directional signs at the site guide you to a safe route around the construction zone on the north side of the street.

If the work affects bus stops, more signs will direct pedestrians to the nearest stop.

Work continues until October 26.


Also starting Monday, October 22, contractors start building a new “utility access portal” — a manhole — on the east side of Prospect Street south of Davis, as part of this project. They’ll be blocking the northbound curb lane near the entrance to the Southlake Regional Health Centre parking garage from 7 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. each day.

They’ll also block the east sidewalk around the work area on Prospect Street. Pedestrians should obey signs on the site, directing them to a safe route around the construction zone.

Work continues until November 23.
