401 Highway expansion done

LONDON, Ont. — Improvements to Highway 401 from Highway 402 east to Wellington Road, to help improve safety and traffic flow, are now complete, says Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation.

The work undertaken along this busy stretch of highway, which leads to Canada’s two busiest commercial international border crossings at Windsor and Sarnia, also included the replacement of the Wellington Road Bridge.

Installation of an overhead changeable message sign and three closed-circuit cameras were also included to better manage traffic flow to the Windsor border.

Work began on this project in June 2006 and was completed in August 2008.

The federal government is also contributing $45 million to the following projects that lead to the Sarnia border crossing:

Reconstruction of a 20-km stretch of Highway 402 between Lambton Road 26 and Highway 21; widening and operational improvements to Highway 402 leading to the Blue Water Bridge; and intelligent transportation systems, including the installation of variable message signs on Highway 402.
