Hwy 427 Extension

Highway 427 north of Toronto recently saw an impressive $616M expansion. The 6.6-km extension runs from Highway 7 to Major Mackenzie Drive and also includes a 4-km widening of the existing roadway between Finch Avenue and Highway 7. Drivers now have three new interchanges: at Langstaff Road, Rutherford Road, and Major Mackenzie. It is estimated that this new expansion could save commuters up to 25 minutes in travel time for a two-way trip during peak periods, compared to existing parallel roadways. The much anticipated expansion improves traffic flow and reduces congestion—something drivers are sure to appreciate. Even better? High Occupancy Vehicle lanes are available in both directions.
