New truck entrance into subway construction site
may delay bus and other traffic on Highway 7, west of Jane

TTC and City of Toronto contractors continue working on the project to extend the 1 Yonge - University - Spadina subway beyond Downsview Station northwest to Vaughan.

From Monday, September 10 until Friday, October 5, contractors working on the project will open a temporary truck entrance into the construction site of the future Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Station. The road enters Highway 7 at the east end of the current barrier curb lane west of Jane Street.

Trucks slowing to turn off the road and enter the construction site may delay buses and other traffic along Highway 7. A flagperson will be on duty. Motorists should be careful when driving along Highway 7 between Interchange Way and Jane Street. This section of Highway 7 has a speed limit of just 50 km/h. during this project.

Passengers riding Brampton Transit buses operating along the 501 Züm Queen route and York Region Transit buses operating along the Viva orange and 77 Highway 7 / Centre routes should expect delays. Plan on adding extra time to transit trips through this area.

Work continues at the site daily from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. During the work, expect some construction-related noise. The City of Vaughan has also amended its noise by-law to allow the contractor to continue to work overnight and during the weekends work, if necessary, to reduce long-term disruption and to keep the project on schedule.

Sidewalks remain open on the north side of Highway 7 to allow pedestrian to have access during this portion of construction.
