To accommodate growth, York Region is widening and improving Leslie Street, from Wellington Street to Mulock Drive, and St. John’s Sideroad, from Bayview Avenue to Woodbine Avenue, in the Town of Aurora, the Town of Newmarket and the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville.

We recognize construction can be disruptive and are making every e­ ort to minimize disruption to those living, working and travelling in those areas, and keep all informed with regular updates.

Construction is occurring in three phases:
