TORONTO, Ont. — As part of the $401-million program to upgrade Highway 401 in Toronto, the government will invest $40.3 million to reconstruct the highway between Leslie Street and Allen Road.
“This project is part of the government’s continued commitment to improve driving conditions on Highway 401,” says Norm Sterling, Transportation Minister.
The project involves rehabilitation of the Highway 401 westbound collector lanes between Bayview Avenue and Allen Road. Work will also include rehabilitation of eight bridges and replacement of noise barriers on the north side of Highway 401 located east of Bathurst Street, east of Yonge Street and east of Bayview Avenue.
The contract was awarded to Brennan Paving and Construction Limited of Markham. Construction is scheduled to begin this month and will be completed by fall 2004.
To minimize disruption to motorists, temporary lanes will be created to maintain the overall number of lanes on Highway 401. Most construction will take place at night and during off-peak hours. However, some nighttime closures of westbound collector lanes and ramps will be required.
