Highway 401 Planning Study

This Planning, Preliminary Design, and Class EA Study includes the replacement and rehabilitation of structures, interchange modifications, and future widening of Highway 401 to six (6) and eight (8) lanes. The project limits are from 2 km west of the Highway 401 & Stewart Blvd Interchange (IC 696) to 750 m east of the Highway 401 and North Augusta Road Interchange (IC 698) for a total length of approximately 4.5 km.

The purpose of the study is to identify a Recommended Plan that addresses current and future transportation needs in the study area as part of the Ministry’s ongoing review of current and future safety and operational needs for the provincial highway network.

The details of the proposed work will be further developed as the Preliminary Design progresses and will be presented to the public and agencies at two Public Information Centres.
