McNaughton Road West Environmental Assessment
Future improvements to McNaughton Road West
The City of Vaughan is undertaking a Municipal Class Environmental Assessment Study for improvements to McNaughton Road West between Major Mackenzie Drive and Falvo Street.
The study will assess operational performance improvements and urbanization of McNaughton Road West, considering the inclusion of sidewalks, cycling facilities, and mid-block and trail crossings to support the connection to the proposed Vaughan Super Trail and Bartley Smith Greenway Trail. These improvements will aim to address capacity and operational needs to accommodate planned growth in the area for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users, and motorists.
The first Public Information Centre (PIC) took place from June 27 to July 28, 2023 for you to learn more about the City’s study, review findings to date and provide input on the proposed improvements. The PIC was kicked-off with a live virtual meeting on Tuesday, June 27. You may review the presentation slides or watch a recording of the virtual meeting.
If you have any questions or wish to be added to the mailing list to stay informed about study updates and future engagement opportunities, please contact Hilda Esedebe, Project Manager, at Hilda.Esedebe@vaughan.ca or Michelle Mascarenhas, Consultant Project Manager, at Michelle.Mascarenhas@hdrinc.com.
The study area
The study area for this project is McNaughton Road West from Major Mackenzie Drive to Falvo Street.
McNaughton Road was first built as an access to the City landfill site. As the City experiences rapid growth and development, the area around McNaughton Road has transformed. Some notable changes include:
- Maple Go Station – McNaughton Road connects to the Maple GO station area, which is expected to experience increased use as Metrolinx plans to increase its service to all-day two-way service as part of the Barrie Rail Corridor Expansion project. Work on the grade separation of the GO rail line at McNaughton Road (just east of Falvo Street) is currently under review by Metrolinx, amongst other improvements planned for the GO station area.
- McNaughton Road East Improvements – The addition of active transportation facilities along McNaughton Road East from Keele Street to Major Mackenzie Drive.
- Major Mackenzie Drive Improvements – Road reconstruction project including the addition of cycling facilities from Jane to just east of Keele Street, and the addition of a left turn lane at Keele Street.
- Keele Street Improvements – Watermain and sanitary sewer replacement, implementation of sidewalk and cycling facilities and street lighting, Rutherford Road to Teston Road.
As part of the study process, the project team will assess how McNaughton Road West meets the current and future needs for the area and potential improvements to meet those needs.
