Major Mackenzie Drive construction:
YRT adjusts schedules, February 24



Update — Thursday, May 26, 6:29 p.m.: Starting today, the TTC and YRT relocate bus stops on Major Mackenzie Drive West near Weston Road to accommodate the construction.


The Region of York contractors continue working on a construction project to upgrade:

  • Major Mackenzie Drive between Highway 50 and Highway 400.

Over the next few years, the contractors will:

  • widen the roadway to six lanes,
  • install sidewalks, a multi-use path, storm sewers, street lighting and landscaped medians.

They’ll also eliminate the jog at Highway 27.

Since mid-June 2015, crews have been working between Pine Valley Drive and Highway 400. They’re rebuilding the three south lanes of the roadway between Pine Valley and Weston Road. To provide enough space to build these lanes, the Region has temporarily shifted the traffic lanes to the north side of the roadway.

They’re also working at the new culvert crossing at Marigold Creek, west of Woodend Place. To keep traffic moving along Major Mackenzie Drive, they’re installing the culvert in stages. They’ll temporarily shift traffic on several occasions and block traffic lanes to accommodate this work.

Starting Thursday, February 24, the work affects service along TTC buses operating along this route:

  • 165 Weston Rd North and

YRT buses operating along this route:

  • 4 Major Mackenzie

That day, eastbound YRT buses may start arriving as much as ten minutes earlier than usually at stops between Pine Valley Drive and Weston Road due to the construction. If buses are operating ahead of schedule, they will hold at the bus loop just west of Weston Road.

Construction on this section of Major Mackenzie Drive continues until July.
