York Region managing lane and road closures

NEWMARKET - The Regional Municipality of York is currently managing several lane and road closures across the Region.  Motorists are advised to avoid the following areas:
Leslie Street north of Green Lane in the Town of East Gwillimbury
All lanes on Leslie Street are closed in this area due to a truck rollover that has leaked diesel fuel.  Clean-up is ongoing, but will continue through the evening rush hour.
Bathurst Street between Westmount Boulevard and Atkinson Street in the City of Vaughan
The curb lane will be closed after the evening rush hour tonight to repair a broken watermain.  The closure will likely continue through tomorrow’s morning rush hour.
York Region thanks residents and motorists for their patience are repairs are undertaken.
