Highway 7 nightly lane closures west of Warden

What type of work is being done?

Hydro wires will be installed in Markham at Rodick Road, on the south side of Highway 7. The work will start on Sunday, August 14, from 8:00pm to 6:00am, and will take place over 6 nights. Work will be completed by morning of Saturday, August 20.

What does the work entail?

  • The pavement will be cut across Rodick Road
  • New hydro wires will be installed
  • The existing road will be restored

What impact will there be?

  • Nightly lane closures along Rodick Road will begin for southbound traffic and move to northbound traffic, as work progresses. One lane will be closed at a time
  • Police officers will be on site to manage traffic flow
  • Lanes will be back-filled and paved as work progresses, to keep lanes open during the day
  • The sidewalk will be closed where work is being done
  • Signage will be in place to direct pedestrians
  • There will be continuous noise from the sound of our equipment
  • Work will be completed as quickly as possible to minimize any inconvenience

Will any bus stops be affected?

  • No bus stops will be impacted for this work

more than just a rapidway
rebuilding Davis from the ground up
Davis Drive is approaching its final year of construction and we thank you for bearing with us as we work hard to transform Davis Drive.

construction is challenging
Completely rebuilding Davis is a challenging and complex project that required replacing and relocating outdated utilities and infrastructure under and above ground, before road widening could begin.

what’s to come
Substantial work above ground is underway. Here’s a snapshot of how work is progressing.

 

  • Construction of the vivastation at Parkside/Longford and Davis is underway.
    The steel structure and glass canopy shelter will arrive later this fall.
  • Construction of two more vivastations at Main and Southlake Hospital
    will also begin later this year.
  • The reconstruction of the Keith Bridge will be completed this fall.

viva is coming to davis – dec. 2015
In addition to having a centre-lane bus rapidway, Davis will have wider sidewalks, green open spaces and dedicated left-turn lanes at each intersection that will improve overall traffic flow. All these changes will make Davis an even greater destination to live, work, shop and play.
