Public Notice

Yonge Street

Notice of Road Construction

Updated February 10, 2019

Between John Street and Highway 407
June 25, 2018 to mid January 2019 (resuming spring 2019)

The Regional Municipality of York works to maintain the condition of our Regional roads for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. York Region has been making improvements to Yonge Street, between John Street and Highway 407, in the City of Markham and the City of Vaughan.

Road improvements include:

  • Removing existing asphalt and repaving with new asphalt
  • Repairing curbs and catch basins
  • Upgrading crosswalks at three intersections to meet the new Access for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) requirements

The majority of work, including the repaving, is complete. Construction has shut down for the winter and will resume in spring 2019 in order to complete the permanent line painting.

As with all road construction projects, some work may be rescheduled due to weather. York Region will provide advance notice whenever possible and will make every effort to minimize disruptions. 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.

If you have any questions regarding this project, contact information has been listed below. To better assist you, please quote Yonge Street Resurfacing in the City of Markham and the City of Vaughan in your inquiry.
