Notice of Road Construction

Updated September 10, 2019
From Langstaff Road to Major Mackenzie Drive
July to September 2019

The Regional Municipality of York works hard to maintain the excellent condition of Regional roads for motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and transit users. York Region is making improvements to Islington Avenue from Langstaff Road to Major Mackenzie Drive in the City of Vaughan.

Construction is in progress and is expected to be completed by September 2019. As with all road construction projects, some work may be rescheduled due to weather. York Region will provide advance notice whenever possible.

Microsurfacing will be applied to Islington Avenue; this is a cost-effective road preservation treatment, commonly used to treat roads with minor defects. The road surface can feel rougher and sound noisier after the treatment. Over time, the stones will knead together and the surface will become quieter.

Islington Avenue will remain open to traffic throughout construction, and access to residents and businesses will be maintained. Active construction will occur on no more than 500 metres of road each day, with the location moving throughout the construction period. To accommodate construction, temporary lane restrictions will be in place between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

  • Two southbound lanes and one northbound lane will be open between 7 a.m. and 9:30 a.m.
  • One lane in each direction will be open between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.
  • Two northbound lanes and one southbound lane will be open between 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.

York Region will make every effort to minimize disruptions and we 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 contact us if you have any safety concerns in and around this site.
