Highway 7 West rapidway - Concord / Thornhill:
Overnight paving on Bathurst, starts August 12



VivaNext - Thornhill - header.jpg

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.


From 7 p.m. Monday, August 12 until 7 a.m. Tuesday, August 13 and continuing overnight nightly, crews are paving the north- and southbound lanes

  • on Bathurst Street between Worth Boulevard / Flamingo Road and Centre Street.

Crews first pave northbound lanes between Centre and Flamingo, then pave southbound lanes between Worth and Centre. The work zones restrict traffic on Bathurst to just one lane, first northbound, then southbound.

The crews are using a method of paving called echelon. This method allows them to pave multiple lanes side-by-side with the paving machines slightly offset. It results in better overall compaction.

Expect noise, dust and vibration from equipment and trucks.

After paving, crews repaint traffic lines and reopen lanes as soon as the new asphalt has cooled.

“Paid-duty” York Regional Police officers and traffic-control personnel will be on-site to direct traffic and pedestrians safely around work zones.

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

  • Viva orange;
  • 23 Thornhill Woods;
  • 88 Bathurst.

Overnight paving on Bathurst and the resulting YRT service changes continue until 7 a.m. August 17.
