Notice of Traffic Signal Modifications

In the City of Markham

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 Highway 7 and Wootten Way North/South in the City of Markham. 

Graphic Map Highway 7 and Wootten Way Intersection Construction Area. For a detailed description contact 1 877 464 9675 extension 75923.
The existing traffic signal will be reconstructed to meet Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requirements. Improvements include replacing the standard push buttons with Audible Pedestrian Signals and inserting walking surface indicators into the concrete ramps, which will require curb work and paving. Traffic signal construction is scheduled to start in April and is anticipated to be completed by summer 2020.

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.

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

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.
