Lanes to stay closed on Bathurst Street between Summeridge Drive and Autumn Hill Boulevard in Richmond Hill


Watermain break will keep lanes closed for next several days


NEWMARKET ??" Bathurst Street between Summeridge Drive and Autumn Hill Boulevard in the Town of Richmond Hill remains restricted to one northbound and one southbound lane following an earlier watermain break.


Repair crews from The Regional Municipality of York remain on-site; however, it will take several days to fix the broken pipe.


Staff from the Region’s Roads branch have set up signs to alert motorists of the lane restrictions and are resetting local traffic signals to better maintain traffic movement.


York Region thanks motorists for their patience as this emergency repair work continues.  Motorists are encouraged to use Yonge Street or Dufferin Street as alternates.
