Yonge Subway and Highway 7 Rapidways Information

Thursday, June 19th, 2008

Thanks go out to Raffi Derharian for providing me with information to post here from the information sessions held while I was out of town. This post is mostly his words, with a bit of formatting and some other bits (like comparisons to some of the Transit City presentations).

At some point, hopefully soon, there will be soft copies of the presentation material. I will update this post to add links when they become available. In the meantime, Raffi has been kind enough to provide a couple of photos of the drawings. Click on the thumbnails to see them in greater detail.

Open House for Yonge Street Subway and Highway 7 Rapidways (Updated)

Monday, June 16th, 2008

Two open houses will be held on Tuesday June 17 and Wednesday June 18 on the next generation of Viva. These open houses will focus on the proposed:

  • Yonge Street subway extension from Finch Avenue to Highway 7
  • Highway 7 rapidways between Yonge Street and Kennedy Road

These will be held at the Premiere Ballroom and Convention Centre at 9019 Leslie Street, Richmond Hill (one block north of Highway 7).  They run from 5 pm to 9 pm with a presentation on Highway 7 Rapidways at 6 pm and a presentation on the Yonge Street Subway at 7 pm.

Updated: I wanted to attend at least one of these sessions, but business has me in Denver for the first half of the week. If anyone reading this attends, I would appreciate it if you could email me with any notes or comments.
