BURLINGTON, Ont. — Highway 403 is about to get a $750,000 makeover.

Transportation minister Norm Sterling, Burlington MPP Cam Jackson and Stoney Creek MPP Brad Clark announced the funding for improvements on the highway in the Burlington area yesterday.

Sterling says when completed, this project will substantially improve driving conditions and safety throughout this area.

The project involves widening Highway 403 eastbound to five lanes through the King Road underpass to provide three lanes toward the QEW and a two-lane exit to Hwy. 407. The lighting system will also be upgraded as part of the widening.

Construction is scheduled to be complete by December. The contract has been awarded to Dufferin Construction Company of Oakville.
