McCague Avenue at Leslie Street

Notice of Road Closure

In the City of Richmond Hill

The Regional Municipality of York is investing in building a safe, efficient and reliable Regional transportation network for all users. Improvements to Leslie Street from Elgin Mills Road to 19th Avenue in the City of Richmond Hill are underway to accommodate growth and improve traffic flow.

As part of this improvement project, crews will be working to reconstruct a 100 metre section of McCague Avenue, where it connects to Leslie Street.

The work will bring McCague Avenue in line with Leslie Street, to meet Leslie Street where it has been widened and raised. Watermain chambers, fire hydrants, manholes and catch basins will also be raised to the new road grades.

To complete this important work, McCague Avenue, where it intersects with Leslie Street, will be closed for three weeks, from Monday, July 27, 2020 to Friday, August 14, 2020.

Leslie Street will remain open to traffic.

Construction on Leslie Street is anticipated to be completed in summer 2021.Once complete, travellers will benefit from four lanes, a multi-use path, a sidewalk and enhanced street lighting.

Please note: 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.
