New stopping and turning procedures at Rouge Valley Drive and Enterprise Boulevard

There is a new designated stop location for drivers on southbound Rouge Valley Drive approaching Enterprise Boulevard, which includes traffic light sensors that control vehicle and pedestrian crossings.

To turn right onto Enterprise Boulevard, drivers should wait for the green signal. New signs indicating no right on red will soon be installed.

How can I make the traffic lights turn faster?

  • Stop your vehicle at the marked location. Stopping here ensures the traffic light sensors will detect your vehicle and trigger a traffic light change.
  • Stopping your vehicle closer to the intersection or past the marked location is illegal, creates a safety hazard and will not trigger the traffic lights to change.

Why are there new stopping and turning procedures?

  • Viva vehicles are beginning to travel along the rapidway that crosses the north side of this intersection.
  • The new stopping procedures ensure the safety of all vehicles and pedestrians.

When do the new stopping procedures begin?

  • New stopping procedures are already in place.
  • Drivers should stop at the marked location and wait for a green light when making right turns.

Are the new stopping procedures permanent?

Yes, to ensure the safety of all vehicles and pedestrians.

How will these new procedures be enforced?

The new procedures are a legal requirement according to Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act, enforced by police.

When it comes to the future of transit in York Region – it’s coming to Markham this winter with the launch of the third section of the Highway 7 rapidway on South Town Centre Boulevard, Cedarland Road and Warden Avenue.

A lot of activity is taking place as we all prepare for Viva beginning to run in this new section of rapidway. This includes preparing to open the new Cedarland Station, testing of Viva and emergency service vehicles in the rapidway lanes and training of YRT/Viva staff – to name a few.

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!
