A new east-west connector road on the Oshawa-Whitby border has reached completion.
Stellar Drive, also known as Regional Road 25, runs between Thickson Road and Thornton Road, just north of Champlain Avenue.
Construction will continue on Stellar Drive into next spring to complete boulevard work and restoration.
Additionally, construction work on Champlain Avenue will be ongoing as crews work to reconstruct and widen the road.
Lane restrictions should be expected until the fall of 2020.
“I’m pleased to announce that Stellar Drive is now open to the public, creating another east-west connection for south Whitby and Oshawa,” said Susan Siopis, commissioner of works for Durham Region. “We’d like to thank local residents and businesses for their patience throughout construction as we grow our regional road network as our community continues to grow.”
