Ninth Line from Fincham Avenue to Tiers Gate/White’s Hill Avenue
October 2019 to summer 2020

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 Ninth Line from Fincham Avenue to Tiers Gate/White’s Hill Avenue in the City of Markham.

Road improvements will include:

  • Intersection improvements at Fincham Avenue and at Tiers Gate/White’s Hill Avenue, including:
    • New left-turn lanes
    • Upgrading crosswalks to meet Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act requirements including pavement markings, accessible pedestrian signals, and curb ramps for easier access for pedestrians with mobility devices
  • Repaving with new asphalt
  • Installing new curbs and catch basins on the east side of Ninth Line

Due to unforeseen delays, the road construction has been rescheduled to commence in the spring of 2020. Some minor work will commence this fall, including electrical work, but the majority of civil construction will be rescheduled to the spring when the weather will be more conducive to the type of construction being planned. 

When construction commences in spring 2020, Ninth Line will remain open to traffic during construction, and access to residences and businesses will be maintained. To accommodate construction, the closure of one northbound lane may occur between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday.

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.
