Patience is a virtue, and it looks like it’s about to pay off.

If you take the 410, you know that construction has been ongoing for years. Now, we’re inching closer to the project’s completion date.

The massive redesign on Highway 410 began in 2014, where the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) aimed to reconstruct the 410  from Eglinton Ave on the 403 to north of Queen Street.

According to the MTO, the construction contract is expected to be complete in mid-November.

That means that the re-design will be complete next month (so it looks like Christmas is coming early for commuters).

A new HOV lane, a new general purpose lane, commuter parking lots at the Courtneypark and Clark interchanges, widened lanes, a median tall wall barrier and traffic cameras will be in place upon completion.

Commuters can also expect widening and/or rehabilitation of several structures between Eglinton Avenue on Highway 403 and Queen Street on Highway 410 in Brampton.

You might have seen much of this construction, but as the project nears completion, it’s interesting to note just how much is in the works and will soon be ready for use.

The HOV lane, for instance, runs along the Highway 403 northbound Collector, from just north of Eglinton Avenue to the Highway 401/Highway 410 interchange.

“The new HOV lane will indirectly tie into the existing HOV system at Highway 403, currently ending south of Matheson Boulevard East,” reads the MTO’s website.

The lane is actually the lane next to the median barrier wall on the 410/403, north and south.

“Before the HOV is completed, (work includes all asphalt, sewers, signage, and pavement markings) and can be placed into the correct alignment, traffic will not be allowed into this area,” reads the site.

The MTO has also been replacing all overhead sign structures and even worked to construct new ramps – the 403 W – 401 W Ramp and 401 W – 403 W Ramp.

Even a new storm system has been in the works, complete with seven stormwater management ponds.
