Yonge Street rapidway construction:
starting September 1



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


Over the next few weeks, crews are completing geotechnical testing along Yonge Street in Newmarket. This work will help contractors prepare for the next phase of rapidway construction.

In accordance with a lane-closure strategy that vivaNext, the Town of Newmarket and York Region recently developed, crews will not be closing traffic lanes during the daytime. Work takes place overnight and only requires them to temporarily close traffic lanes.

They’re working at various locations between just north of Davis Drive and just south of Mulock Drive from 8 p.m. Monday, September 1 until 6 a.m. Tuesday, September 2 and continuing overnight nightly.

They’ll use a drilling truck to bore sample holes at various locations. They’ll fill in each hole before they move to the next work site.

Traffic-control staff and “paid-duty” York Regional Police officers will be on site if necessary.

Wherever possible, sidewalks will remain open. If the work blocks a sidewalk, directional signs will guide pedestrians safely around work zones.

Expect construction-related noise from equipment and trucks.

Work continues until 6 a.m. September 15.


During rapidway construction on Yonge Street in Newmarket, expect delays for GO Transit buses operating along these routes:

  • 65 Newmarket / Toronto; and
  • 68 Barrie / Newmarket.

Also expect delays for York Region Transit buses operating along these routes:

  • Viva blue;
  • Viva blue “A”;
  • 22A King City;
  • 57 / 57A Mulock;
  • 98 Yonge; and
  • 520 / 521 Newmarket community bus.
