More Davis Drive rapidway construction,
starting April 21



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


Over the next few weeks, expect work on the project to block these side streets north and south of Davis Drive:

  • Bolton Avenue; and
  • Wilstead Drive.

Look for “road closed” signs, which will provide the most up-to-date information on the dates of the road closures. Detour signs will be in place to guide drivers to alternate routes around the closed streets.


Crews will start working as early as 4 a.m. Monday, April 21 at the northeast corner of Davis Drive and Hill Street. Expect construction-related noise around the work area.


York Region Transit has temporarily closed the westbound bus stop at Bolton Avenue, across from Southlake Regional Health Centre. (YRT buses operating along the 50 Queensway, 55 / 55B Davis Drive, 58 Mount Albert routes usually drop off or pick up passengers at this stop.) Board or exit westbound buses at Patterson Avenue or Bayview Parkway.


During Davis Drive rapidway construction, GO Transit passengers riding express buses operating along the 65 Newmarket / Toronto route and York Region Transit passengers riding local buses operating along the 44 Bristol, 50 Queensway, 54 Bayview, 55 / 55B Davis Drive, 58 Mount Albert, 223 Newmarket GO shuttle and 520 / 521 Newmarket community routes should expect delays.
