WINDSOR, Ont. — The Hwy. 401 widening project between Windsor and Tilbury has been completed, the province has announced.
“This multi-phase project will improve traffic flow and safety on this important stretch of Highway 401, which leads to Canada’s busiest commercial border crossing,” said Federal Transport, Minister Lawrence Cannon. “The completion of phase two of this project is another example of governments working together to achieve results for Canadians.”
The feds and province of Ontario combined to fund the three-phase program. The third phase of the improvement project is already underway and is expected to conclude this fall. It includes upgrading the Windsor South Truck Inspection Station to a commercial vehicle inspection facility. It also involves widening Hwy. 401 from four to six lanes between Hwy. 77 and Essex Road 27 and installing a concrete median.
