Congestion relief for the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Areas
The second phase of the Highway 407 East Extension was awarded to a Cintra-led consortium in 2015. The project consists of the design, build, finance and operation of an easterly extension of Highway 407 Phase I from its terminus east of Harmony Road in the City of Oshawa to Highway 35/115 in the Municipality of Clarington. It will also include the East Durham Link (“EDL”), a four-lane freeway numbered as Highway 418, which will serve as a north-south freeway connector to Highway 401.
This 20-mile expansion will include 76 bridge structures and eight interchanges, including three freeway-to-freeway connections to Highway 407 East and Highway 401 from Highway 418 and Highway 35/115. The first section of the project from Harmony Road to Taunton/Highway 418 is expected to open to traffic at the end of 2017 and the remaining portion is expected to be completed in late 2019.
