Keele Street Vaughan construction affects YRT service, starting May 31



Starting Monday, May 31, the Region of York continues a project to improve

  • Keele Street (Regional Road 6) between Highway 407 and Steeles Avenue

in the City of Vaughan.

Contractors complete the project in phases to reduce the timeline for disrupting travellers. The contracts are:

  • widening the roadway from four to six lanes, with on-street bicycle lanes;
  • replacing the bridge over the Canadian National Railway’s York subdivision tracks;
  • extending and creating a continuous sidewalk on both sides of Keele Street; and
  • upgrading all the intersections and street lighting to meet current Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requirements.

(As part of the project, crews started relocating utilities in August 2020. They completed this part of the project in March 2021.)

During phase 1 of the project, the Region is closing the west side of Keele and traffic in both directions flows on the east side.

During this phase, crews:

  • widening the roadway;
  • build the new bridge over the tracks; and
  • install a water main.

Throughout the project expect work zones to restrict or block traffic lanes, while crews deliver or remove material and equipment from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Expect overnight activity when crews:

  • close the ramps to and from Highway 407 from 8 p.m. until 6 a.m.;
  • connect water services to commercial and office buildings;
  • pave from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m.

York Region Transit passengers aboard buses along these routes can expect delays:

  • 3 Thornhill;
  • 96 Keele - Yonge; and
  • 107B / 107C Keele*.

Construction on Keele Street and the resulting YRT service changes continue “until fall 2023”, meaning as late as until November 30, 2023.
