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.

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.
