Road Construction Update

Highway 27 and King Road Intersection Improvements in the Township of King

The Regional Municipality of York is investing in building and enhancing its transportation network to accommodate growth, improve traffic flow and connect communities.

Construction at Highway 27 and King Road in the Township of King has resumed and is anticipated to be completed by summer 2019. As with all road construction projects, some work may be rescheduled due to weather. Advance notice will be provided whenever possible.

Once construction is complete, intersection improvements will include:

  • Increased traffic flow and efficiencies with new left-turn lanes in the northbound and southbound directions on Highway 27 and modernized traffic signal equipment
  • A beautified public space that supports healthy communities by encouraging outdoor activity, including a parkette, new sidewalks, a Village of Nobleton sign, raised planter beds, benches, columns and fencing
  • Enhanced intersection accessibility, including zebra markings, gradual slope transitions, accessible pedestrian signals and tactile walking surface indicators. These flat bumps, detectable under foot when walking, alert pedestrians with low or no vision they are at the edge of the roadway.

The intersection will remain open to traffic during construction and access will be maintained, however temporary lane closures will be in place for certain phases of construction. Remaining work includes:

  • Completing landscaping features, including fences, banner poles, benches and waste receptacles
  • Planting trees and bushes in the parkette and boulevards
  • Laying sod
  • Paving the top coat of asphalt and painting line markings

We recognize construction can be inconvenient and are making every effort to minimize disruptions. Thank you for your patience.

Safety is a priority on all Regional construction sites. For everyone’s safety, please reduce your speed through the construction area. Please contact us if you notice any safety issues in and around the construction site.
