Highway 7 West, lane restrictions for Millway Ave. closure

As part of the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension project (TYSSE), detour and access road construction begins this week to prepare for the upcoming long-term closure of Millway Avenue. Millway Avenue is anticipated to close on September 13 from Portage Parkway to Highway 7, including the Apple Mill Road intersection.

What work is being done?

Crews will connect Highway 7 to the Future Shop driveway and Apple Mill Road, and build a driveway from Interchange Way to Toromont CAT (see green lines on map).

When will the work happen?

Normal hours of work will be 7am to 7pm, Monday to Friday (excluding statutory holidays), with some overnight and weekend work if required. Work begins this week and is scheduled to be complete before September 13.

What impacts will this have?

  • Temporary curb lane closure on westbound Highway 7, west of Millway Avenue.
  • Temporary lane restrictions on Apple Mill Road and the Future Shop driveway, and on Interchange Way (south of Highway 7).
  • Reduced speed or delays on Highway 7 as construction equipment is moved.
  • Construction-related noise – The City of Vaughan has amended a noise bylaw for the duration of this project.
  • YRT bus stops (#4734 and #4732) on eastbound and westbound Highway 7 at Millway Avenue will remain open initially, but will close later this fall once the intersection is under construction.
  • Sidewalks will remain open on one side of Highway 7.
