Rapidway on Highway 7 West:
Construction continues, January 12

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.

As rapidway construction continues, crews are permanently installing traffic signals along Highway 7 West. Starting Monday, January 12, they’re working from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. each day for about eight weeks or until March 6.

During this work, they’ll temporarily reduce alternating north- and southbound traffic lanes on Creditstone and Maplecrete Roads, near their intersections with Highway 7. They’ll work for about four weeks at each intersection, starting with Creditstone from January 12 until February 6. Work at Maplecrete follows from about February 9 until March 6.

Crews will maintain two-way traffic at all times, they may also intermittently reduce right- and left-turn lanes. They’ll also temporarily de-activate traffic signals at each intersection. Traffic-control staff and “paid-duty” York Regional Police officers will be on site to direct motorists and pedestrians. Expect temporary traffic delays.

During Highway 7 West rapidway construction, expect delays for:

  • Brampton Transit Züm express buses operating along the 501 Züm Queen route;
  • TTC buses operating along the 35D Jane and 107 Keele North routes; and
  • York Region Transit Viva express buses operating along the Viva orange route and YRT local buses operating along the 20 Jane and 77 Highway 7 routes.
