Highway 7 West being surveyed to prepare for rapidways
January 19, 2011
What work is being done?
Land surveyors will be taking measurements along Highway 7 (from Weston Rd. to Centre St.) and down Centre St. to Dufferin St. over the next two months. This segment is being given priority to coincide its completion with the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension.
The balance of survey work, between Helen St. and Yonge St., will commence at a later date. You will be advised in a new bulletin when the rest of the survey work will take place.
Why is it being done?
To more accurately document existing properties, road conditions and confirm property/project boundaries in preparation for building the vivaNext rapidways.
What impact will this have?
There should be little or no impact as surveyors use their portable measuring devices and make every effort to ensure area residents and businesses are not inconvenienced.
Where and when will the rapidways be built?
Rapidway construction will happen in two phases over several years:
- Highway 7 between Highway 400 and Creditstone to coincide with the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension – 2012 to 2015
- The balance of Highway 7 between Helen St. and Yonge St. – 2016 to 2020
