Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study Road Crossing of Highway 404 between Major Mackenzie Drive and Elgin Mills Road in the Town of Richmond Hill and City of Markham

The Regional Municipality of York completed a Schedule ‘C’ Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for a new road crossing of Highway 404 between Major Mackenzie Drive and Elgin Mills Road in the Town of Richmond Hill and City of Markham. The road crossing will provide an additional east-west link in the road network and help accommodate future transportation needs of pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and motorists.

Graphic map showing the study area between Major Mackenzie Drive and Elgin Mills Road over Highway 404. For a detailed description of this map please call 1 877 464 9675 extension 75560.

The recommendations identified in the Class EA study include a new, four-lane road, extending from Leslie Street to Woodbine Avenue, bridges over Highway 404 and the Rouge River, continuous cycling and pedestrian facilities, streetscaping and intersection reconfigurations at Performance Drive and Via Renzo Drive and at Markland Street and the new, four-lane road.

York Region has prepared an Environmental Study Report (ESR) documenting the study process, consultation efforts and the recommended plan.
