The Ontario Ministry of Transportation has broken ground on the expansion of Highway 427 in Vaughan.
The highway will be extended by 6.6 kilometers from Highway 7 to Major Mackenzie Drive, and widened to eight lanes from Finch Avenue to Highway 7.
Once completed in 2021, High Occupancy Toll lanes with electronic tolling will also be installed on Highway 427 in both directions from south of Highway 409 to north of Rutherford Road—approximately 15.5 kilometers. No existing general purpose lanes will be removed to accommodate HOT lanes.
Ontario is spending $616 million on the expansion of Highway 427 in Vaughan. In 2017-18, the province is committing more than $2.5 billion to repair and expand provincial highways and bridges across the region.
