Notice of Road Closure: Major Mackenzie Drive in the City of Vaughan

The Regional Municipality of York will be closing Major Mackenzie Drive between Islington Avenue and Pine Valley Drive in the City of Vaughan for two nights: Wednesday, September 18, 2019 and Thursday, September 19, 2019 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Local access will be maintained for properties within the closed section.

The two overnight closures are needed to complete installation of a concrete barrier on the south side of Major Mackenzie Drive. The barrier will protect the public and workers during the continued reconstruction of this section of road.
