Why Are We Doing This? We will be doing this work to meet the requirements of the 2007 North Yonge Street Corridor Public Transit Improvements Environmental Assessment, which identified 32 areas of potential archaeological interest along Davis Drive. This work is being done to ensure that any important historical artifacts are identified before the roadway is widened for the rapidway. What Will This Involve? The assessments are very simple, the holes are dug by hand and soil sifted for artifacts. A one foot by one foot hole, approximately one to two feet deep, will be dug approximately every 18 feet along the properties. The holes are then filled in before moving to the next location. We’re off and building We will not be assessing entire properties. Work will only be done along the existing roadway on the land acquired by the Region for the road widening. Archaeologists will do their best to ensure any inconvenience to you is minimized. Most properties will only require a day to assess, although some may take longer depending on how wide the property is. Work will begin on May 17, and will take about 4 weeks to complete. S What Do We Expect to Find? Although Davis Drive was an historic 19th century roadway, repeated development along the roadway suggests that it is unlikely that there will be any significant new findings. Findings would possibly include pottery, nails, utensils or other simple artifacts.

People are excited about the real progress being made on the vivaNext projects – from the construction of a six-lane bridge as part of the Spadina subway extension in Vaughan, to the early construction activities that are happening along Davis Drive in Newmarket. We haven’t lost any time since the funding schedule from Metrolinx was revised and confirmed earlier this summer. Whether it’s removing buildings, testing soil conditions, or installing our new glass canopy over the first vivaNext rapidway station at Enterprise Drive, construction is well underway – with lots more to come! With funding committed to build the entire vivaNext network over the next 10 years, there is a lot more work to be done. The budget and schedule are firm: $790 million for rapidway projects to be constructed over the next five years and $965 million for the other rapidway projects to be constructed between 2016 and 2020. When it’s all built, the finished network will make getting around by rapid transit faster, more convenient and fun for everyone who lives, works, shops or plays in York Region. See inside for a detailed map of our planned network and for more information on the work you can expect to see this fall on vivaNext segments around the Region.
