Traffic alert: Lane reduction on Hwy. 7 between Jane and Edgeley

Construction sign

Originally scheduled for last week, a lane reduction on Highway 7 between Jane Street and Edgeley Boulevard will now begin the week of June 22. The reduction was delayed due to poor weather. Work may be rescheduled again due to inclement weather or other variables. The Toronto Transit Commission will provide advance notice of schedule changes, whenever possible.

Significant progress has been made on the construction of Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) Station over the past two years. The next phase of TTC construction (Phase 1 of the lane reduction) involves backfilling the station beneath Highway 7, removal of the traffic bridge and work on the connection to the vivaNext bus rapidway. Phase 2, by vivaNext, is work in the centre of the roadway to build the subway station connection to the bus rapidway, and to widen the north side of Highway 7.

Lane reduction on Highway 7

To facilitate this work, traffic lanes on Highway 7 will be shifted to the south, and a section of Highway 7, from west of Jane Street to east of Edgeley Boulevard (approximately 500-metres), will be reduced from six lanes to four lanes. Two lanes eastbound and two lanes westbound will remain open at all times.
