In preparation for the Highway 427 Expansion, York Region continues to do considerable work to Major Mackenzie Drive between Highway 400 and Highway 50. Work includes widening Major Mackenzie Drive to six lanes, realigning the road at Highway 27 to provide a continuous connection and installing a multi-use path, sidewalks and street lighting.
