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.


The contractors have already started widening Yonge Street to prepare for upcoming rapidway construction.

From 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Friday, December 14 and continuing daily, crews are installing water mains

  • on Roosevelt Drive west of Yonge Street.

They start working on the southwest corner of the intersection, then proceed northward.

The work zone restricts traffic on Roosevelt to just a single, shared lane for both east- and westbound traffic.

“Paid-duty” York Regional Police officers and traffic-control staff will be on-site to direct motorists during this work.

Water-main construction on Roosevelt Drive continues until 5 p.m. December 18.


From 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. Friday, December 14 and continuing daily, crews are installing water mains

“Paid-duty” York Regional Police officers and traffic-control staff will be on-site to direct motorists during this work.
