A sidewalk and street lighting are being installed along the east side of Bathurst Street between Shaftsbury Avenue and Gamble Road. These improvements will benefit pedestrians, as it will create a continuous sidewalk from Highway 7 to King Vaughan Road. This will now provide more connectivity for travellers on Bathurst Street from south of Shaftsbury Avenue to north of Gamble Road.

Work began in early October and is anticipated to be completed in spring 2021. Work will be in a winter shut down as of January 2021 and will commence again in spring 2021. Once construction continues in spring 2021, Bathurst Street will remain open to traffic and access will be maintained, however, a temporary lane closure of one northbound lane may be required between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every Saturday for construction. Safety is a priority so please slow down through construction areas.

Please note: 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.
