Rapidway on Highway 7 West:
Paving at Jane Street, July 23, 24, 25



Metrolinx and York Region contractors continue building 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.


This weekend, crews are repaving the south side of Highway 7 on both sides of Jane Street after a long period of construction to build the future rapidway. They’re working continuously, 24 hours each day, from 6 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, July 23 until 6 a.m. Monday, July 25.

York Region Transit is detouring buses operating along these routes to accommodate the work:

  • 20 Jane; and
  • 760 Wonderland / Vaughan Mills.

Passengers riding buses operating along the 77 Highway 7 route should also expect delays.


During phase 1 of this weekend’s work, from 6 a.m. tomorrow until 6 a.m. Sunday, July 24, the Region of York and the City of Vaughan are closing to all traffic:

  • Jane Street between Highway 7 and Doughton Road.

However, motorists traveling to and from #7685-7695 Jane Street can drive along that section of Jane Street between Doughton and the plaza.

Crews are shifting eastbound traffic on Highway 7 to the north side of the roadway to allow contractors to pave the southern part of the intersection.

Eastbound motorists can’t turn right onto Jane Street.

During phase 2, from 6 a.m. Sunday until 6 a.m. Monday, July 25, crews are restricting southbound traffic on Jane to just one lane from south of Portage Pkwy to Highway 7 and blocking left-turn lanes. Southbound traffic may turn right onto Highway 7 but cannot proceed through the intersection.

They’re also restricting northbound traffic to just one lane from north of Interchange Way / Peelar Road to Doughton Road and blocking left-turn lanes. Motorists traveling to and from #7685-7695 Jane Street can drive along that section of Jane Street between Doughton and the plaza.

They’re reducing eastbound traffic on Highway 7 to just one lane from east of Edgeley Boulevard / Interchange Way to west of Maplecrete Road. They’re blocking the eastbound left-turn lane at Jane; however, motorists may U-turn at Creditstone Road. Eastbound traffic may turn right onto Jane.

During this phase, crews are making two open lanes available to westbound traffic on Highway 7. They’re blocking the westbound left-turn lane at Jane; however, motorists may U-turn at Edgely Boulevard / Interchange Way.

During both phases, “paid-duty” York Regional Police officers are on site to help guide pedestrians, cyclists and motorists around the construction zone.

Expect construction-related noise from equipment and trucks.
