Davis Drive rapidway construction:
starting August 18

Davis Drive - east of Bolton - Aug-18 -14.jpg

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 several months, crews will undertake multiple work activities on the north side of Davis Drive, just east of Bolton Avenue. They’re installing water-mains and storm sewers, widening the road and later paving the roadway, to get ready for building a new vivastation at Southlake Regional Health Centre later this year.

Starting Monday, August 18, they’ll work Mondays to Fridays from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. each day, although they sometimes work overnight or during weekends.

Businesses across from the hospital are open to customers. Crews will narrow driveways and may occasionally block access when they’re working in the area.

They’ll also maintain access for pedestrians and motorists. Traffic-control personnel will be on-site to guide you safely around the construction zone.

Construction continues until December 31.

During Davis Drive rapidway construction, expect delays for:

  • GO Transit 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.
