York Regional Road 65, also known as Warden Avenue, is a north-south road in York Region, Ontario, Canada. It begins at Warden and Steeles Avenue, and ends at Ravenshoe Road, after which it becomes Civic Centre Road.

The road passes through a low-density residential and commercial area from Steeles to 14th Avenue, increasing to medium-density at the intersection with 14th Avenue, and becomes high-density in Downtown Markham from Highway 407 to Highway 7. It was recently widened to 6 lanes from Steeles to Apple Creek to accommodate the anticipated traffic Downtown Markham will bring. It has 4 lanes from Apple Creek to 16th Avenue, and is a 2-lane rural road from 16th to Baseline Road.

Recently released statistics from the Town of Markham indicate that the portion between Highway 7 and 16th Avenue has the third most traffic volume in all of Markham. The annual average daily traffic is as high as 14000. The section between Apple Creek Boulevard and Highway 407 is jam packed during weekday rush hours; there are 5 traffic lights in the 1 km stretch.

Attractions

Attractions along the road include Warden Centre, Power Stream Markham Offices, Motorola Canada Headquarters (part of Downtown Markham), Downtown Markham sites, Hilton Suites, Markham Civic Centre, Markham Theatre, Unionville High School, Markham Town Square, Warden House, Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area, Rolling Hills Golf Club, Emerald Hills Golf and Country Club, and Pheasant Run Golf Club.

Public transit

Warden Avenue north of Steeles Avenue is served mainly by TTC Route 68B. Since this is a TTC route in York Region, extra fare is required when crossing Steeles. Other routes using portions of Warden Avenue are Viva Green and YRT Route 40 (Unionville Local).

Three Vivastations are on Warden Avenue, one on Enterprise Drive named Warden, one on 14th Avenue named 14th, and one on Denison Street named Denison. The first Vivastation is on the Viva Purple, Viva Pink, and Viva Green lines, while the latter two are on the Viva Green line.
