TORONTO, Ont. — Construction to repair sections of pavement on Hwy. 427 between the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) and Hwy. 401 will aim to improve road conditions and provide a safer ride for drivers.

By repairing this section of road now, as part of the Southern Ontario Highways Program, we are ensuring the safe and efficient movement of goods and people for years to come.”
Construction work is underway and includes repairing sections of the Hwy. 427 southbound express lanes from Hwy. 401 to the QEW. The project also includes repairing the Rathburn Road and Burnhamthorpe Road underpasses.
The $2.4-million construction contract and work is expected to be complete by November. Construction will be done in stages at night with short-term lane closures. Signs will be posted in advance to warn drivers of closures.
