Demolition program begins on Davis Drive

As part of the project to improve Davis Drive and build the vivaNext rapidways,twenty-one buildings were acquired and will be removed in preparation for construction.

Our environmentally-responsible demolition program will ensure that at least85% of the materials recovered from these buildings will be reused and/orrecycled, with less than 15% going to landfill.

What building is being demolished?

The building at 496 Davis Drive will be the first to be removed.

Additional demolitions will take place in August and September, as details are available advance notification will be provided.

When will it start?

Site preparation has begun and demolition will occur the week of August 9, 2010.

How long will the demolition and clean up take?

The actual demolition of the building will take a few days. The overall schedule to complete building removal and site clean up is 35 days. During this time, the property will be fenced and all activities will be fully monitored and supervised.

Work will be done in accordance with all municipal and regional bylaws and will meet all health, ecological and regulatory requirements.

Who is doing this work?

Davis Drive \ Newmarket

Charming town where history and vitality mix.

Pedestrian-friendly boulevards; green, open spaces; a vibrant corridor that brings the community together to dine and relax, live, work and shop. Sounds like a dream? Pinch yourself and keep reading.

An exciting new viva rapidway along Davis Drive will change the way we experience our community. Upon completion, the rapidway will immediately make it easier for staff, patients, visitors and volunteers of the Southlake Regional Health Centre to get to the hospital.  Over time, Davis Drive will become an attractive urban destination to work, dine, relax, live and shop.

This rapidway will move east along Davis Drive from Yonge Street to just past the hospital. About 2.6 km, to be exact. Then we’ll keep it going another 2.3 km to Highway 404 – this stretch will run the same way viva service currently does, in the curbside lane.

Are we there yet? Almost… scheduled completion is 2015.
