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

Improvements to Leslie Street and St. John’s Sideroad in the Town of Aurora, Town of Newmarket and Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville are underway to accommodate growth and improve traffic flow.

Improvements include:

  • Widening Leslie Street to four lanes from Wellington Street to Mulock Drive to improve traffic flow
  • Widening St. John’s Sideroad to four lanes from Bayview Avenue to Leslie Street to meet the needs of travellers in the area
  • Enhancing street lighting, installing on-street bike lanes, constructing sidewalks, building a multi-use path and improving landscaping to support cycling and walking along Regional roads and provide more travel options for residents
  • Replacing existing culverts with larger culverts or bridges to allow for the safe passage of fish and wildlife and to improve creek flow
  • Replacing and updating traffic signals to improve intersection accessibility to meet the needs of our communities today and into the future
  • Reconnecting 14 kilometres of water course by removing barriers and enhancing existing streams to allow for more fish habitat
