Highway 401 Expansion to Help Manage Congestion and Improve Commutes
Ontario is creating jobs and keeping people moving by widening 18 kilometers of Highway 401 from the Credit River in Mississauga to Regional Road 25 in Milton.
The Highway 401 Expansion project includes adding HOV lanes in each direction and widening the existing six lane configuration to: • Twelve lanes from the Credit River to Winston Churchill Boulevard • Ten lanes from Winston Churchill Boulevard to Highway 407 ETR / Highway 401 interchange • Twelve lanes from Highway 407 ETR / Highway 401 interchange to James Snow Parkway • Ten lanes from the
James Snow Parkway to Regional Road 25 Widening the 401 will relieve congestion, allow for a more efficient transportation and flow of goods, and will help accommodate continued population and employment growth in the region.
The project is being delivered under Infrastructure Ontario’s Alternative Financing and Procurement model, which transfers risks associated with design, construction and financing of the project to the private sector.
The average daily traffic for the Highway 401 in the Peel and Halton Region is approximately 108,000 to 188,000 vehicles per day.
