Improvements Begin on Highway 410


Ontario is widening a 12-kilometre stretch of Highway 410 from south of Highway 401 to Queen Street, to improve traffic flow and safety in the Greater Toronto Area, while creating or sustaining more than 1,550 construction jobs.

The project includes:

Repairing, repaving and expanding the section of Highway 410 from six to 10 lanes

  • Building one general purpose lane and one High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction
  • Repairing seven bridges
  • Constructing two new ramps at the highway 401/403/410 interchange
  • Opening two new carpool lots
  • Installing concrete median barriers and high-mast lighting

Construction is targeted for completion by fall 2018.

Improving highways, roads and bridges across the province is a key part of the government’s economic plan to invest in people, create jobs, build modern infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.

The $156.7-million contract was awarded to Aecon Construction and Materials Limited.
