from Dufferin Street to Bathurst Street
In the City of Vaughan

The Regional Municipality of York (York Region) 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 West from Bathurst Street to west of Dufferin Street.

Graphic Map Major Mackenzie Drive from Dufferin To Bathurst Area. For a detailed description contact 1 877 464 9675 extension 75889.

Construction began mid-April 2020 and is expected to be complete July 2020. 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.

Road improvements include:

  • Removal of current top asphalt
  • Laying new asphalt
  • Installation of pedestrian AODA features such as push buttons, upgraded walkways, curb depressions and tactile plates

• Major Mackenzie Drive West will remain open to traffic throughout construction, and access to residences and businesses will be maintained. However, to accommodate construction, lane reductions will occur Monday to Sunday between the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. No night work will take place following June 19, 2020. York Region will make every effort to minimize disruptions and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

For everyone’s safety, please reduce your speed through the construction area.  

Travellers are encouraged to use traffic and navigation tools. York Region provides real-time traffic and road information in open data, used by many app developers.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of this project?

Travellers will get a rehabilitated road and pedestrian features such as push buttons, upgraded walkways, curb depressions and tactile plates ensuring a safer commute for all road users.

What exactly is resurfacing?

The resurfacing of a road means the surface asphalt is removed and a new surface is laid.

Why do roads need to be resurfaced?

Once a road has been constructed, it is important to maintain it so the road can last for as long as possible before needing to be replaced completely. Roads are inspected regularly and maintenance, such as resurfacing, is completed when deemed necessary.

Are there any lane closures or reductions associated with this project?

Intermittent lane reductions will be required between 7a.m. and 7p.m. to facilitate construction.

Will there be any night work?

Can pedestrians and cyclists still use the road?

Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained during construction

Restrictions at intersections may be required as work is completed and pedestrians may be directed to use an alternate side of the intersection to cross
