Ontario to spend $81M to widen Highway 401 in Mississauga to 12 lanes
4-kilometre stretch to span between Hurontario to Credit River, with construction done by 2019
The Ontario government will widen a four-kilometre stretch of Highway 401 in Mississauga to 12 lanes from six.
Premier Kathleen Wynne was in Mississauga today with Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca to announce the start of construction.
Wynne says the project will cost $81 million and be completed by 2019 and support 800 construction jobs.
She says it will span Hurontario Street to the Credit River and will have two high-occupancy lanes.
The government says the expansion is one of 230 highway construction projects that are expected to begin this year.
