The Regional Municipality of York completed a Schedule ‘C’ Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for roadway operational improvements to Major Mackenzie Drive West from McNaughton Road/Avro Road to Keele Street in the City of Vaughan.

The Class EA Study identified the following recommendations that will improve conditions for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists:

  • Implement new two-way centre left-turn lanes throughout the study area
  • Add an eastbound right-turn lane at the Keele Street intersection
  • Provide a multi-use path, enhanced sidewalks and streetscaping
  • Add new tra­ffic signals at the Gram Street intersection
  • Modify private commercial entranceways at several locations
