Installing vivastations and traffic signals on Enterprise Drive

Over the next few weeks, we will be installing new vivastations, paving red asphalt on our rapidways and installing new traffic signals at Rouge Valley Drive West and Enterprise Drive.

Warden Avenue and Enterprise Drive:

  • Starting October 12, sections of the vivastations will be raised and lowered into place
  • After October 22, red asphalt will be paved on the western part of Enterprise Drive, with partial lane closures during off-peak hours
  • Enterprise Drive and Warden Avenue will remain open at all times 

At the intersection of Rouge Valley Drive West and Enterprise Drive:

  • Beginning week of October 18, traffic signal equipment will be installed
  • Rouge Valley Drive West, extending south of Enterprise Drive, will remain open at all times
  • Individual lanes may be closed at times in and around the intersection as the traffic signal equipment is installed
  • Work will take place on weekdays during off-peak hours.

In Markham, the future of transit has arrived with the opening of the last piece of the Highway 7 East rapidway along South Town Centre Boulevard, Cedarland Drive and Warden Avenue.

A new vivastation is open on Cedarland Drive, walking distance to shopping, major employers and future condo developments. This final section of rapidway allows YRT/Viva customers to experience truly rapid transit, from Bayview Avenue in Richmond Hill to the Downtown Markham development area. On the rapidway already in service on Highway 7, riders are already seeing up to 35% travel time savings. All this goes a long way to improving transit in York Region and providing a faster and more convenient commute. And all of you are a big part of that. Thank you!

When weather permits in the summer of 2015, the “BUS ONLY” lanes will have a red top-coat of pavement applied and trees and shrubs will be planted. These finishing touches will set the stage for attractive, pedestrian-friendly urban spaces for generations to come.
