Davis Drive rapidway:
More construction started February 28



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.


From 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. yesterday, Saturday, February 28 and today, Sunday, March 1, crews continued removing the structure at 161 Davis Drive.

Today, they’ll block southbound curb lane on Longford Drive; however traffic can still move along the street in both directions. They’ll also block the east sidewalk on Longford. Use the west walk.

Expect noise and traffic delays on Longford.


Starting Tuesday, March 3, from 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day, crews are investigating underground utilities near the entrance to The Tannery entrance to prepare for upcoming telecommunications ductbank work.

They’ll temporarily block traffic lanes on the Tannery driveway; however vehicles can still enter and exit the Tannery at all times.

Although traffic-control personnel will be onsite to help direct traffic, expect delays.

Work continues until March 5.
