From Bayview Avenue to Leslie Street
Mid-September to late fall 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 Major Mackenzie Drive from Bayview Avenue to Leslie Street in the City of Richmond Hill.

Road improvements include:

  • Repaving with new asphalt
  • Repairing curbs, catch basins and maintenance holes
  • Upgrading crosswalks to meet Access for Ontarians with Disabilities Act requirements including pavement markings, pedestrian push buttons, raised crossings and curb ramps for easier access for pedestrians with mobility devices

Repairs to curbs, catch basins and maintenance holes is complete, and new asphalt has been placed on the roadway. The remaining work includes the above crosswalk improvements at the Major Mackenzie Drive/Bayview Avenue and Major Mackenzie Drive/Leslie Street intersections.

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

Major Mackenzie Drive will remain open to traffic during construction, and access to residences and businesses will be maintained.

York Region’s priority during construction is to minimize disruption to those living, working and travelling in the area. In order to do this, most of the construction work will be completed at night between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. Temporary lane restrictions will also be in place during off-peak hours. Work will not occur on Sundays or statutory holidays.

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.
