Highway 407 East Expansion Project in Durham Region

Durham Region - Although total completion of the new extension of Highway 407 East is not due to open until 2020, the Province of Ontario has recently named the 407 East Development Group as the preferred bidder to design, build, finance and maintain Phase One of the major construction project.  

Following are a few of the most popular questions that motorists and concerned citizens of Durham Region have asked:

Q:  Who owns this new expansion of the 407, and who will operate it?
A: Highway 407 East will be owned and controlled by the Province of Ontario.  

Q:  Where does the expansion end?
A:  The 407 East Expansion Project has two phases.  Phase 1 will end at Harmony Rd. in Oshawa.  Phase 2 will end at Highways 35/115 in Clarington.  

Q:  When will each Phase be completed?
A:  Phase 1 is scheduled to be completed in late 2015.  Phase 2 is scheduled for completion in 2020.  

Q:  Will the 407 connect to Highway 401?
A:  Yes.  The 407 Expansion Project will connect to Highway 401 in two areas called links.  The first link will be an interchange just east of Lakeridge Rd, and the second link will be at Rundle Rd. in Clarington.  Each link is a ten kilometer stretch connecting directly to the 401.  

Q:  How many lanes will the 407 extension be?
A:  Most of the new highway will be four lanes, with the exception of the stretch between Brock Rd. in Pickering to the West Link, which will be six lanes.
