Future Highway Expansion - Southern Highways Program

Part III: Planning for the Future

Future Highway Expansion

The five-year Southern Highways Program outlines the projects that will be constructed. These projects will ensure that we continue to support growth and address existing highway congestion by expanding and enhancing safety and efficiency on our highways.

The government is very aware of the need to plan for the long term to ensure a first-class transportation infrastructure for the future. The Ministry of Transportation continuously evaluates anticipated transportation needs. Potential future directions include:

  • Optimizing, expanding or extending existing highways
  • Developing new highway corridors
  • Identifying and implementing transportation solutions on strategic transportation corridors
  • Evaluating options for transit and other modes of transportation.
