Bayview Avenue Transportation Improvements

The Regional Municipality of York is investing in building a safe, efficient and reliable Regional transportation network for all users.

To enhance our Regional road network for all travellers, improvements will be made to Bayview Avenue between Bloomington Road and Vandorf Sideroad in the Town of Aurora.

Once completed in fall 2019, improvements will:

  • Provide new opportunities for cyclists and commuters to use active forms of transportation to explore York Region by travelling on dedicated and comfortable cycling and pedestrian trails. A 2.2 kilometre asphalt Lake to Lake Cycling Route and Walking Trail will be built on the west side of Bayview Avenue from Bloomington Road to Vandorf Sideroad (see description below).
  • Improve the condition of our Regional roads for motorists by repaving Bayview Avenue
  • Meet the needs of our communities today and into the future by enhancing intersection accessibility at Vandorf Sideroad. Improvements include installing zebra markings, gradual slope transitions, accessible pedestrian signals and tactile walking surface indicators. These flat bumps, detectable under foot when walking, alert pedestrians with low or no vision they are at the edge of the roadway

Upcoming construction

To install the trail, select trees close to the proposed trail area will be removed. This work is scheduled to take place in March 2019. As with all construction, some work may be rescheduled due to weather and advance notice will be provided whenever possible. Trees that have been removed will be replaced with new trees once the trail is built.

Major trail construction and additional road improvements are scheduled to take place in summer 2019.

About the Lake to Lake Cycling Route and Walking Trail

The Lake to Lake Cycling Route and Walking Trail is a 121-kilometre recreational and commuter trail that will connect Lake Ontario in the south to Lake Simcoe in the north.

This transformative project is an important part of York Region and the City of Toronto’s active transportation network, connecting to trails such as the Greenbelt Route, PanAm Path and Waterfront Trail, destinations like transit hubs and other attractions such as beaches, community centres and parks.
