MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Highway 403 is being widened by one lane in each direction from Highway 407 easterly to Highway 401.
The work includes:
* widening and rehabilitating the Mullet Creek overpass, Credit River overpass, Central Parkway overpass and Matheson Boulevard overpass; * lane and shoulder resurfacing; * upgrading the Cawthra Road and Eastgate Parkway intersection; * construction of a median concrete barrier along Highway 403 to better guide traffic and enhance safety; * upgrading highway lighting between Central Parkway and Highway 401.
The widening will allow these new lanes to be designated as high-occupancy vehicle lanes — reserved for buses and vehicles with two or more occupants. To minimize disruption to motorists during construction, intermittent lane closures will take place during off-peak hours.
Construction start date: September 29 Construction completion date: Summer 2006
