Temporary Road Closures and Water Main Work

Please note the following upcoming work and temporary road closures for the Yonge Street Rapidway project:

Temporary Road Closures
To accommodate scheduled utility relocation work as part of the vivaNext Yonge Street bus rapidway project, three cross streets in Richmond Hill will be temporarily closed at Yonge while crews trench across the intersection:
• Canyon Hill Avenue: Monday, August 14 – Friday, September 1
• Trayborn Avenue: Mid-September
• Oxford Street: Mid-September

Crews will be working from 7am-7pm, Monday to Friday; however, the road closures will remain for 24-hours a day in order to protect the work zone and provide the option for weekend work.

Water Main Installation
Last fall, crews installed a new water main from just north of Carrville Road/16th Avenue to Harding Boulevard. The next phase of water main installation, from just south of Harding Boulevard to Major Mackenzie Drive, is scheduled to start in mid-August. Work will be completed during both the day and overnight, and is anticipated to take approximately 10 weeks to complete.
