The Regional Municipality of York is investing in building a safe, efficient and reliable Regional transportation network for all users. We are improving the intersection of King Road and Weston Road in the Township of King to accommodate growth and improve traffic flow.

Improving traffic flow by:
  • Installing left-turn lanes on all four sides of the intersection
  • Upgrading the traffic signals
  • Enhancing intersection accessibility

Improving the roadway by:
  • Flattening the hill on King Road, west of Weston Road
  • Repaving King Road from west of Weston Road to west of Highway 400
  • Replacing the aging infrastructure

Construction Update

Since construction began in mid-July 2019, the following improvements have been completed:

  • Replaced three culverts across King Road
  • Widened King Road to accommodate an eastbound turn lane
  • Flattened the hill on King Road, to reduce the steepness of the road

Construction has shut down for the winter and will commence again in April 2020. Upcoming improvements will include:

  • Completing the installation of retaining walls on the north side of King Road
  • Widening Weston Road and King Road, to the east of Weston Road, for the installation of the new left-turn lanes
  • Installing new traffic signals at the intersection
  • Paving King Road and Weston Road

When construction continues in April, the intersection will remain open to traffic and access will be maintained, however, temporary lane closures may be required Monday to Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

We recognize construction can be disruptive and we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Safety

Safety is a priority on all Regional construction sites. For everyone’s safety, please reduce your speed when travelling through the construction area. Please contact us if you have any safety concerns in and around the construction site.

To help manage your daily commutes during construction, travellers can plan their route in advance by using traffic and navigation tools. York Region provides real-time traffic and road information in open data, used by many app developers.

We are here to answer your questions. Accessible formats of this news item or communication supports are also available upon request.
