SOUTH DUNDAS — A $5.4 million project for the resurfacing of Highway 401 eastbound lanes in the Township of South Dundas was announced today by Transportation Minister Norm Sterling.
"Our government's record investment in highway infrastructure is fueling economic growth throughout Ontario," Sterling said. "When completed, this project will improve traffic flow and enhance road safety."
This project has been awarded to Dufferin Construction Limited of Carp, Ontario. It includes the resurfacing of the Highway 401 eastbound lanes between Carman Road and Upper Canada Road. Work will also include resurfacing of ramps, fully paving the right shoulders, installing rumble strips and repairing the Hosaic Creek bridge.
Due to the nature of the work, there will be intermittent lane closures, and only one lane will be open at all times during construction at the Hosaic Creek structure.
Work on this contract is scheduled to start this spring and be completed by fall 2002.
This investment is part of the government's five-year, $20-billion SuperBuild initiative designed to facilitate the largest infrastructure-building program in Ontario's history. Since 1995, the Ontario government has invested about $6.5 billion in highway capital projects.
