7th Line Study

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). This partial closure and one way driving restriction will remain in effect until the completion of the environmental assessment and road reconstruction. Whenever possible please use an alternate route.

We're committed to getting you from point A to point B as quickly and safely as possible - to do so the has Town commenced an Environmental Assessment Study for the 7th line from Yonge Street to the 10th Sideroad.

The Environmental Assessment Report is complete and currently up for a 30-day review period starting October 10, 2019 and ending November 11, 2019 in accordance with the requirements of the MCEA process.

The Study followed Schedule C of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process described in the Municipal Engineers Association guide (October 2000, as amended in 2007, 2011, & 2015), which is an approved process under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

A Notice of Study Commencement inviting public input was published on August 9 and 16, 2018. Two Public Open Houses (POH) were held on November 27, 2018 and April 8, 2019.
