Veterans Memorial Parkway ramps open after a year of construction
The closures were part of a city expansion plan of Wilton Grove Road
The city announced Thursday that eastbound ramps along Veterans Memorial Parkway, part of a new interchange along the road and Highway 401, are now open to road users.
It took a little more than a year of construction for all on and off ramps to open.
The major project included the construction of an extension to Wilton Grove Road in order to improve road access for residents and potential commercial traffic south of the 401.
The $22 million project, with costs split between the province and the city, would add another 800 meters south to Wilton Grove Road.
It would also replace the existing bridge over the highway on it's current alignment and improve ramps, including adding new ones.
Overall, it's set to encourage long-term economic growth in the area, and improve traffic flow.
