Notice of Intersection Improvements

Flashing Beacon Installation
Intersection of McCowan Road and Herald Road
In the Town of East Gwillimbury

Update September 29, 2020

York Region cares about your community and we are committed to delivering transportation improvements safely, while minimizing disruptions as best as possible. We’re building, reconstructing and repairing regional roads for you, your community and the future of the Town of East Gwillimbury.

We are making improvements to the intersection of McCowan Road and Herald Road in the Town of East Gwillimbury.

A four-way red flashing overhead beacon will be installed at this intersection. Flashing beacons provide additional visual support for motorists when approaching an intersection where there may be reduced visibility, curves, higher travel speeds or hills.

Work began the week of August 24, 2020 and is anticipated to be completed in October 2020. The intersection will remain open to traffic and access will be maintained, however, temporary lane closures will be required between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. for construction. Safety is a priority so please slow down through construction areas.

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.
