Rapidway on Highway 7 West:
More construction, February 7

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.

Crews continue to widen to eight metres (24 feet) the bridge that carries Highway 7 over the Canadian National Railway tracks west of Keele Street. As part of this work they’ll receive and pour concrete and install new bridge girders to support the bridge deck tomorrow, Saturday, February 7.

From 7 a.m. until 7 p.m., they’ll temporarily block eastbound lanes on the bridge, restricting eastbound traffic to just one lane. Traffic-control staff and “paid-duty” York Regional Police officers will be on the site to direct motorists, cyclists and pedestrians safely around the construction zone.

Expect noise.

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.
