Road improvements include:

  • Removal of the top asphalt
  • Laying of new asphalt
  • Installation of pedestrian Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act features including push buttons, curb depressions and tactile (raised) walkways

Islington Avenue will remain open to traffic throughout construction, and access to residences and businesses will be maintained. However, to accommodate construction, temporary lane reductions may be required between Monday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and to accommodate paving, lane restrictions will be in place between 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. York Region will make every effort to minimize disruptions and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
