VMC Transportation Master Plan
With more people living, working and travelling through the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre (VMC) – Vaughan’s downtown – the City of Vaughan recognizes that the existing VMC Transportation Master Plan needs to be updated.
The revised master plan will confirm community transportation needs and support a strategy that focuses on street connectivity, accessibility and support for pedestrians, cyclists, transit users and vehicles into 2051. The VMC has been identified as an urban growth centre in the provincial growth plan, A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (2020). This plan is the driver for improved land use and infrastructure planning efforts to date and continues to be the basis for the VMC growth strategy.
The City is advancing the VMC Transportation Master Plan Update and Schedule 'C' Class Environmental Assessment (EA) Studies for the extensions of Interchange Way and Millway Avenue, simultaneously.
To enhance transportation in the VMC, the City is proposing preferred road alignments for the extensions of Millway Avenue and Interchange Way. Want to review plans and help design the final option? Here’s how you can share your input:
Provide feedback online: View material from the in-person meeting online and provide feedback until Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2024.
Questions, comments and feedback can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The City is hosted a Public Information Centre (meeting) on Dec. 5 at the Vaughan Studios & Event Space (200 Apple Mill Rd., main floor), for residents to speak to the project team, learn more about the road extensions and have their say. Thank you to everyone who attended!
These studies will evaluate alternative designs, select a preferred design, examine impacts on the surrounding environment and identify measures to mitigate those impacts. The proposed extensions of these two streets are the last two significant missing road segments in the major collector road network within the VMC.
