Challenges and opportunities – HIGHWAY 427 EXPANSION

September 19, 2017

​A significant expansion is planned for Highway 427. The project is currently in the design stage. Once construction starts, there will be impacts on local traffic and for local communities. The expansion will open up new lanes to improve logistics and transportation and connections from Brampton to surrounding communities.

The Highway 427 Expansion project includes the design and construction of the following:

A new 6.6 km extension from Highway 7 to Major Mackenzie Drive with:
• eight lanes from Highway 7 to Rutherford Road
• six lanes from Rutherford Road to Major Mackenzie Drive
• three new interchanges (Langstaff Road, Rutherford Road and Major Mackenzie Drive)
• new median High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes.
A 4.0 km road widening from Finch Avenue to Highway 7:
• from six to eight lanes between Finch Avenue to south of Steeles Avenue;
• from four to eight lanes, from south of Steeles Avenue to Highway 7; and
• new median High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes.

LINK427 has been selected by the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) and Infrastructure Ontario (IO) to undertake the design, build, finance and maintenance of the Highway 427 Expansion project.
