Highway 404/Highway 7 Interchange Improvements

Transforming Highway 404/Highway 7 Interchange

In collaboration with the City of Markham and the Town of Richmond Hill and under the approval of the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, York Region has transformed the road network around the Highway 404/Highway 7 interchange for all road users.

Beginning Tuesday, July 10, 2018, York Region travellers will have more options to get where they need to go, with the opening of Norman Bethune Avenue and Aristotle Avenue in the City of Markham and the Town of Richmond Hill.

Norman Bethune Avenue extends from East Beaver Creek Road to Allstate Parkway, and Aristotle Avenue is a north-south road linking Highway 7 to Norman Bethune Avenue.

Construction began spring 2016 and is expected to be completed by fall 2018.

As with other construction projects, some work may be rescheduled due to weather. Advance notice will be provided whenever possible and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Improvements to the road network include:

  • Newly opened Norman Bethune Avenue, a four-lane crossing over Highway 404. On-street bike lanes, sidewalks, trees and streetlighting along Norman Bethune Avenue support walking and cycling trips across Highway 404
  • Newly opened Aristotle Avenue, a three-lane extension of the northbound Highway 404 off-ramp increases connectivity and minimizes the need for making multiple turns when travelling to and from Highway 404
  • Realigned Highway 7 westbound to Highway 404 northbound on-ramp over Aristotle Avenue maintains access to Highway 404
  • New and updated intersections at the Highway 404 northbound off-ramp/Aristotle Avenue and Highway 7 and on Norman Bethune Avenue will provide new options for motorists. New pavement marking and signs will be in place to guide travellers in the area

The combination of Norman Bethune Avenue and Aristotle Avenue provides alternative routes and access options for people travelling to neighbourhoods, business parks and communities within the City of Markham and the Town of Richmond Hill.

Although the new roads will be open to traffic, construction in the area is ongoing.

For everyone’s safety, travellers are reminded to be prepared for new traffic flow patterns in the area.
