York Road temporarily re-opened to traffic

Construction will resume in spring 2024   

Notice date: December 22, 2023 

York Road has been temporarily re-opened to traffic. The next stage of construction work will take place in the spring of 2024, which will include the closure of York Road from Brockville Avenue to Victoria Road. 

About the project 

The closure from Stevenson Street to Brockville Avenue is one stage of the York Road reconstruction program. The project aims to improve water, wastewater, and multimodal transportation (pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists) to support future city growth. The project will improve existing and future services for residents and businesses city-wide. 

This year’s work included complex, large-scale underground infrastructure upgrades with significant environmental constraints. This work is time-consuming but necessary to maintain service levels for residents as the city grows. 

Impacts for businesses and residents 

The City tries to maintain access to local businesses throughout construction but recognizes the impact traffic disruptions have for both businesses and residents. The City will meet with impacted businesses in the new year and will host an open house in March to provide detailed information about the project.
