Open house: York Road Environmental Design Study

The City is planning improvements to the York Road corridor to address current and future needs of our growing community.

Improvements include:

  • widening the road from two to four lanes;
  • adding multi-use pathways to accommodate pedestrians and cyclists; and
  • partial relocation of Clythe Creek.

The York Road Environmental Design Study looked at all aspects of the local environment to establish design requirements for the recommended improvements and identified a design that ensures minimal impacts on natural and cultural heritage features.

The study area is York Road from Victoria Road to the eastern city limit, east of Watson Road.
