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 replacing and improving the retaining wall on the north side of Wellington Street, from McDonald Drive to Haida Drive.

Construction is anticipated to begin in late September and is expected to be completed in the spring of 2021. 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.
