Yonge Street rapidway - Richmond Hill:
Overnight paving, YRT detours



Metrolinx and York Region contractors continue the project to build a rapidway — bus-only lanes in the centre of the roadway — along Yonge Street in Richmond Hill between 19th Avenue / Gamble Road and Highway 7.


From 7 p.m. Thursday, September 27 until 7 a.m. Friday, September 28, crews are paving

  • the Yonge - Highway 7 connector road.

York Region Transit is detouring buses along these routes:

Expect noise and dust from equipment and trucks during working hours.

Wherever possible, crews will make sure that sidewalks remain open. However, if a work zone blocks a walkway, signs will direct you to the nearest available location.
