Davis Drive rapidway construction blocks more lanes,
February 4 to 7

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, February 4 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day, crews are temporarily closing traffic lanes at various sites along Davis Drive to work on the utilities and to install temporary traffic signals. Work continues until February 7.


  • closing eastbound curb lanes in a series of rolling closures between Yonge Street and Parkside Drive;
  • closing westbound curb lanes on both sides of George Street; and
  • closing westbound curb lanes closure on both sides of Barbara Road.

Although the work does not affect bus stops, GO Transit passengers riding express buses operating along the 65 Newmarket / Toronto route and York Region Transit buses operating along the 50 Queensway, 55 Davis Drive, 58A Leslie via Mount Albert and 520 / 521 Newmarket community bus routes should expect delays.
