Rapidway on Highway 7 West:
More construction, November 7, 8, 9



Metrolinx and York Region contractors continue getting ready to build a rapidway — bus-only lanes in the centre of the roadway — along Highway 7 West from west of Jane Street to east of Keele Street.


Contractors continue widening the road and installing new curbs along Highway 7 West. Tomorrow, Friday, November 7 and Saturday, November 8 from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. each day, crews start the next segment of base-layer paving between Jane Street and the CN Bridge.


Tomorrow, Friday, November 7, they’ll work on the north side of Highway 7. They’ll temporarily reduce north- and southbound traffic lanes on Creditstone Road, north of Highway 7 to one lane and reduce right- and left-turn lanes. Expect traffic delays.

They’ll also temporarily block access to driveways and entrances in the work area along Highway 7. You can access Highway 7 businesses from Creditstone Road. Traffic-control staff and “paid-duty” York Regional Police will be on-site to guide pedestrians and motorists and manage traffic flow.
