Notice of Construction Update

Traffic Signal Modifications
In the City of Richmond Hill

The Regional Municipality of York is dedicated to maintaining the condition of our Regional roads for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. We are making improvements to the intersection of 16th Avenue and Berwick Crescent in the City of Richmond Hill.

The improvements being made to this intersection include reconstructing the existing traffic signals to meet Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requirements.

Graphic Map 16th Avenue and Berwick Crescent Intersection Improvement Location. For a detailed description please contact 1 877 464 9675 extension 75923.

Traffic signal improvements commenced in December 2019 to prepare the construction site prior to construction shutting down for the winter. Construction will continue this spring and include:

  • Completing the traffic signal construction, including upgrading the equipment to current standards
  • Installing a pedestrian crosswalk to the east side of the intersection for improved pedestrian safety
  • Upgrading the intersection to meet AODA requirements, including replacing the standard push buttons with Audible Pedestrian Signals and imbedding tactile walking surface indicators into the concrete ramps, which will require curb work and paving 

The intersection will remain open to traffic during construction and access will be maintained, however, temporary lane closures will be required between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. for construction. We recognize construction may be disruptive and the importance of minimizing the impact to those working, living and travelling in the area. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

This work may be rescheduled due to weather conditions or delays related to COVID-19 and Public Health guidelines. York Region will provide advance notice whenever possible.

Safety is a priority on all Regional construction sites. For everyone’s safety, please reduce your speed through the construction area.
