Fencing vacant lots

Several properties were acquired and removed as part of the Davis Drive rapidway project. As a good neighbour wanting to maintain a pleasant setting, we are committed to caring for these properties with general maintenance. The temporary construction fencing is now being replaced with permanent fencing for the duration of the vivaNext project.

What properties will be fenced?

All properties acquired as part of the project will be fenced.

What type of fencing will be installed?

Paddock-style fencing will be installed along the front portion of each property, with a gate to allow access to construction and property maintenance staff.

When will it start?

Installation of the paddock-style fences will start on Monday, June 6 and will be completed within four weeks.*

Why are the new fences so far back from Davis Drive?

The new fences are being installed farther back from Davis Drive to allow utilities to be relocated and the roadway to be widened.

How will the properties be used in future?

Some properties will be used for storage of construction materials, and as work areas when crews are working nearby. Contractors may also use some properties for parking. Once the rapidway project is complete, York Region and Metrolinx will determine on a case-by-case basis, the future of each property.

If you have questions about the Davis Drive rapidway project, please contact Andrea Witty, Community Liaison Specialist at andrea.witty@york.ca or 1-877-464-9675, ext. 1022.

Davis Drive \ Newmarket

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.
