Highway 7 West rapidway - Concord / Thornhill:

Update, Wednesday, August 22, 3:35 p.m.* — Due to rain, crews did not start paving Centre Street on schedule. Instead, overnight paving starts 7 p.m. Thursday, August 23.

Metrolinx and York Region contractors continue building a rapidway — bus-only lanes in the centre of the roadway — along Highway 7 West, Centre and Bathurst Streets between Dufferin and Yonge Streets.


Starting 7 p.m. Friday, August 17, crews are base-paving with the “CIREAM” [cold in-place recycled expanded asphalt mix] process, removing the asphalt and reusing it at the same time, making the process more environmentally friendly and efficient. (A friendlier term for this process is “shave and pave”.)

The crews next use the process to pave:

  • Bathurst Street between Summerfield Drive and Centre Street; and
  • Centre Street between Dufferin and Bathurst Streets.

Starting 7 p.m. Friday, August 17 until 7 a.m. Saturday, August 18 and continuing overnight nightly, crews first pave the north- and southbound centre lanes and then the curb lanes on Bathurst.

  • Stage 1: The work zone blocks the centre lanes in one direction at a time, as crews pave and then paint new lines.

  • Stage 2: The work zone blocks the curb lanes, as crews pave and then paint new lines.

The work zone continues to block the lanes each morning until the asphalt has dried. Once the pavement has dried, crews remove the temporary work zones and reopen the lanes to traffic.

TTC passengers aboard buses along this route can expect delays:

  • 160 Bathurst North.

York Region Transit may temporarily relocate bus stops. YRT passengers aboard buses along these routes can also expect delays:

  • Viva orange;
  • Viva purple;
  • 3 Thornhill;
  • 23 Thornhill Woods;
  • 77 Highway 7;
  • 87 Autumn Hill;
  • 88 Bathurst.

Overnight paving on Bathurst Street and the resulting TTC and YRT delays continue overnight until 7 a.m. August 20.


Starting 7 p.m. Monday, August 20 until 7 a.m. Tuesday, August 21 and continuing overnight nightly, crews first pave the east- and westbound centre lanes and then the curb lanes on Centre.

  • Stage 3: The work zone blocks the centre lanes in one direction at a time, as crews pave and then paint new lines.

  • Stage 4: The work zone blocks the curb lanes, as crews pave and then paint new lines.

The work zone continues to block the lanes each morning until the asphalt has dried. Once the pavement has dried, crews remove the temporary work zones and reopen the lanes to traffic.
