BURLINGTON, Ont. — The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained an engineering firm to identify potential improvements along Hwy. 403 at the Hwy. 407 eastbound exit.
“I am committed to road safety on all our highways and we are working to address concerns about traffic flow at this location,” says Transportation Minister Brad Clark. “My ministry will consider any options put forward by the engineering consultant that will contribute to the safety and efficiency of this section of highway.”
URS Cole Sherman will complete a detailed technical analysis of the configuration of the Highway 403/QEW/407 interchange, including monitoring traffic patterns and driver behavior.
Results of the review are expected by late winter/early spring 2002.
MTO has added permanent directional signs, used temporary changeable message boards to alert drivers to the changed configuration and enhanced pavement markings — all in an effort to improve the area.
“Ontario has the safest roads in Canada, and the second safest in North America,” Clark said. “Maintaining that excellent safety record is one of this government’s top priorities.”
