Major Mackenzie Drive Road Improvements

Notice of Road Construction

Islington Avenue to Pine Valley Drive
City of Vaughan

The Regional Municipality of York works hard to maintain the condition of our Regional roads for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. We are making improvements to Major Mackenzie Drive West from Islington Avenue to Pine Valley Drive. You are receiving this notice because the road construction will be close to your residence or business.

We are transforming the road from two lanes to six lanes to accommodate growth and improve traffic flow. Construction is underway and is anticipated to be completed by fall 2021.

During the first stage of construction traffic will continue to use the existing lanes, as construction will commence south of the existing roadway. In the coming months you will see:

  • Tree clearing, topsoil removal and roadway excavation
  • Installation of traffic control barriers and temporary fencing
  • Bridge construction at the East Humber River and Purpleville Creek
  • Installation of wildlife culverts

Major Mackenzie Drive will remain open to traffic during construction and access to Islington Avenue and Pine Valley Drive will be maintained; however, temporary lane closures may 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.
