Construction Updates will be posted here as the project proceeds. Please check back often for up to date information. 

The project will improve the operational and capacity needs of this section of Highway 401 and Highway 40 and will accommodate the future widening of Highway 401 to eight lanes. 

This includes the following:

  • Reconfiguration of the interchange, including replacement of the Highway 40 bridge over Highway 401
  • Replacement/rehabilitation of three structures in the interchange area, which includes those over McGregor Creek and Lucas Drain
  • A temporary full closure of Highway 40 at the interchange and all interchange ramps for a maximum of 8 months.
  • A local roads detour will be in place during the temporary closure
  • Realignment of Pinehurst Line
  • Reconstruction of approximately 9 km of the eastbound lanes of Highway 401 from east of Bloomfield Road to west of Kent Bridge Road.  One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained on Highway 401
