Sidewalk Closure - YDSS Forcemain Twinning

Notice of Construction In the Town of Newmarket

Stay IN the Know about Traffic and Trail Impacts

York Region is making improvements to our wastewater system. Work is occurring through the Town of Newmarket for the Forcemain Twinning Project. 

While the construction compound in the adjacent work area is being built, a small portion of the sidewalk on the north side of Queen Street just east of Charles Street will be closed.  When crossing Queen Street, please do so at Main Street or Prospect Street.

When: September 16, 2019 for approximately two months

What can you expect?

  • Signage will be in place to direct pedestrians 
  • There will be additional construction-related traffic in the area; staff will be onsite to help with the movement of traffic
  • The construction work area will be fenced off for public safety
  • Due to the nature of the work, there will be construction-related dust and noise

York Region will make every effort to minimize disruptions and we thank you for your patience while we complete this vital work. 

Safety is a priority for York Region; please slow down when travelling through the Forcemain Twinning Project construction areas. As with all construction projects, some work may be rescheduled due to weather or other conditions.
