New stopping and turning procedures at Rouge Valley Drive and Enterprise Boulevard

There is a new designated stop location for drivers on southbound Rouge Valley Drive approaching Enterprise Boulevard, which includes traffic light sensors that control vehicle and pedestrian crossings.

To turn right onto Enterprise Boulevard, drivers should wait for the green signal. New signs indicating no right on red will soon be installed.

How can I make the traffic lights turn faster?

  • Stop your vehicle at the marked location. Stopping here ensures the traffic light sensors will detect your vehicle and trigger a traffic light change.
  • Stopping your vehicle closer to the intersection or past the marked location is illegal, creates a safety hazard and will not trigger the traffic lights to change.

Why are there new stopping and turning procedures?

  • Viva vehicles are beginning to travel along the rapidway that crosses the north side of this intersection.
  • The new stopping procedures ensure the safety of all vehicles and pedestrians.

When do the new stopping procedures begin?

  • New stopping procedures are already in place.
  • Drivers should stop at the marked location and wait for a green light when making right turns.

Are the new stopping procedures permanent?

Yes, to ensure the safety of all vehicles and pedestrians.

How will these new procedures be enforced?

The new procedures are a legal requirement according to Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act, enforced by police.

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.
