Yonge Street / Richmond Hill

This line is on a roll.

In Richmond Hill, where the future Yonge Street North Subway extension ends, a new journey begins. Here, the Yonge Street rapidway will keep you on your journey up the Greater Toronto Area’s most storied corridor. As life along Yonge continues to look up, plans for this area include a wide range of new development initiatives, from great shopping and entertainment to vibrant public spaces.

Before we can build a new street with dedicated rapid transit lanes, wider sidewalks and beautiful plantings, utility companies need to move underground utilities. Crews are relocating water mains, gas mains, hydro poles and lines, and telecommunications equipment. The time we spend replacing and updating our infrastructure is an investment in our communities.

Wait, there’s more. Work is also underway for a rapidway along Yonge Street in Newmarket from Mulock Drive to Davis Drive. Why? It’s all part of a rapid transit network that connects the Region’s urban centres, linking to completed rapidways in Newmarket, Markham and Vaughan, and the future Yonge Subway extension.

Are we there yet? Well, we’re getting close. Crews are continuing to relocate underground infrastructure, which will include required lane closures. Sign up for construction updates to stay informed so you can plan ahead.

If you have questions about the rapidway project, please contact your Community Liaison team.
