  • After October 22, red asphalt will be paved on the western part of Enterprise Drive, with partial lane closures during off-peak hours
  • Enterprise Drive and Warden Avenue will remain open at all times 

At the intersection of Rouge Valley Drive West and Enterprise Drive:

  • Beginning week of October 18, traffic signal equipment will be installed
  • Rouge Valley Drive West, extending south of Enterprise Drive, will remain open at all times
  • Individual lanes may be closed at times in and around the intersection as the traffic signal equipment is installed
  • Work will take place on weekdays during off-peak hours.

Highway 7 East \ Markham and Richmond Hill

Where east meets west.

Markham and Richmond Hill are becoming key destinations within York Region. The Highway 7 East rapidways that travel through both of these municipalities will connect to the Richmond Hill Centre, a new mixed-use urban centre featuring businesses, homes, shops, restaurants, a 10-acre park, a theatre – and you. This is where the planned Yonge North Subway extension will begin (or end). Pick your ride – any ride. From Richmond Hill Centre you’ll find connections to viva, GO, YRT and TTC.

Work started in the Highway 7 right-of-way in April 2011. The first stretch of Viva rapid transit service launched in August 2013 in the centre median, or rapidway, along Highway 7 from Bayview Avenue to Highway 404. In August 2014, the second stretch opened from Highway 404 to South Town Centre Boulevard, and the last piece to Warden Avenue will open by the end of 2014. Future plans to build east to Reesor Road are dependent on additional funding commitments.
