Yonge Street rapidway - Newmarket:
Centre-lane construction starts November 7



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 Newmarket between Davis Drive and Sawmill Valley Drive / Savage Road.


Crews are getting ready for the next phase of rapidway project — building bus-only lanes and vivastations in the centre of the roadway. They start this phase Wednesday, November 7

  • on Yonge Street between Davis Drive and Sawmill Valley Drive / Savage Road.

From 7 p.m. Wednesday until 7 a.m. Thursday, November 8 and from 7 p.m. Thursday until 7 a.m. Friday, November 9, crews are paving the east and west sides of the roadway and painting new lines.

Crews may temporarily block north- and southbound traffic lanes and may restrict traffic on Yonge to just one lane in each direction.

Once they finish painting lines, they’ll set up new work zones in the centre-median area of the roadway, shifting traffic lanes to the east and west sides. These work zones will be permanent (until the end of the project), as the contractors start building the rapidway and new stops (or “vivastations”) at Mulock Drive, Eagle Street and Davis Drive.

“Paid-duty” York Regional Police officers will be on-site to help direct traffic.

Expect construction-related noise and dust from equipment and trucks.

GO Transit may relocate bus stops near the work zones. Passengers aboard buses along this route can also expect delays:

  • 69 Newmarket / Aurora.

York Region Transit may relocate bus stops near the work zones. Passengers aboard buses along these routes can also expect delays:

  • Viva blue;
  • Viva blue “A”;
  • 96 Keele - Yonge;
  • 98 Yonge;
  • 98E Yonge express; and
  • 98/99 Yonge late-night.

This traffic shift permanently changes how pedestrians and motorists use each intersection.

For pedestrians:

  • Intersections will be wider with more lanes and new signals. At the intersections that will have vivastations, you may cross the road in two stages if you can’t get to the other side during the first signal.
  • You can stop at a pedestrian waiting area in the middle of the crosswalk, then push the “walk” button and wait for the next walk signal to safely cross the second half of the street.
  • A countdown signal will indicate how many seconds you have left to safely cross the street.

For motorists:

  • Each intersection on Yonge from Davis to Sawmill Valley / Savage will now have left-turn traffic signals.
  • You can only turn left when the left-turn arrow is illuminated and left turns are not permitted when through traffic proceeds.
  • To access mid-block entrances on opposite sides of the road, you can make a U-turn at the intersection.
