Pre-construction work underway on Davis Drive

Work has begun on Davis Drive, preparing the site for rapidway construction. As with any large project, a lot of work has to happen along the street before actual construction can begin. Between now and later this year, crews will be out doing various tasks including:

  • Soil sampling and testing
  • Building removal, site clean up, relocation of signs
  • Relocation of powerlines, poles and other utilities

To minimize any inconvenience, we will make every effort to inform immediate neighbours, letting you know when and where work is going to take place.

Preparing Properties

Since December 2009, York Region Property Services have been busy preparing the properties along Davis Drive that had to be acquired for rapidway construction. Our work includes:

  • Securing buildings
  • Cleaning up sites
  • Getting buildings ready for removal

We are managing our properties along Davis Drive to keep everything in good shape. Our next bulletin will outline the schedule for these activities.

Dropping By To Hear Your Thoughts

Over the next few weeks our Community Liaison Officer, Andrea Witty, will be visiting Davis Drive businesses to keep you up to date and hear your thoughts. Or if you prefer, feel free to contact Andrea directly.

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Completely rebuilding Davis is a challenging and complex project that required replacing and relocating outdated utilities and infrastructure under and above ground, before road widening could begin.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