Highway 407 East

Overview

This will provide an efficient east-west corridor across central Ontario. It is one of the largest highway construction projects ever in the province.

Construction has started and will continue until Highway 407 East is open to traffic at Highway 35/115 in 2020.

This project includes construction of:

  • 45 km from Brock Road in Pickering to Highway 35/115 in Clarington
  • Two north-south links to Highway 401: a 10-km West Durham Link and a 10-km East Durham Link

Highway 407 East will be a publically owned, tolled highway. The Ontario government will set and regulate tolls, retain the toll revenue and establish high customer service standards.

Benefits

This project will:

  • support the movement of people and goods through the eastern Greater Toronto Area and beyond
  • create opportunities for business
  • accommodate population and employment growth
  • provide emergency detour routes for Durham Region
