The 7th Line between Yonge Street and the 10th Sideroad is partially closed due to unsafe road conditions. Local traffic is permitted travelling one way only from east to west (Yonge Street to 10th Sideroad). We know that the 7th Line from Yonge Street to 10th Sideroad was relied upon road for residents and commuters alike prior to the partial closure. That's why we're making reconstruction a priority. We're currently in the design stage for redoing the 7th line from Yonge Street to the 10th Sideroad. The project is currently in the design stage and in the Fall of 2020 the Town will start to prepare for the road widening by removing trees. A full tree inventory has been completed and the Town is trying to minimize the removal where possible, any species at risk has been identified through the Environmental Assessment (EA) and will be protected. Remaining construction works will being Spring 2021. For more information on the completed EA click here.

Note that this project is separate from the 7th Line Environmental Assessment Study completed for the section from 20th Sideroad to the Lake Simcoe. To find out more about the EA for this section of the 7th line click here. However since the completion of the EA Town Council has approved the addition of the Orbit development. The addition of the Orbit development has put road reconstruction on hold from 20th Sideroad to the Lake Simcoe due to additional servicing and growth in the area that would change the recommendations of the initial EA completed in 2019. Each portion of the 7th line is unique and requires different kinds of attention based on the lifespan left of the road and development planned in the area. The Town is completing temporary repairs in the interim , for info on temporary repairs click here.

The Town appreciates your patience when it comes to the 7th line and we hope you can understand this financially responsible approach. We're just as excited as you are for the 7th line work to be complete!
