Part of 401 About to Be Closed This Coming Weekend

in

If you regularly use the 401 to travel through the GTA (which many of you probably do), there's an upcoming road closure that you might want to be aware of.

Brampton residents who plan on driving through Mississauga this weekend should note that the westbound 401 between Hurontario Street and Mississauga Road will be completely closed from 11:00pm on Friday, Nov. 2 to 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018.

The closure is in place because of an ongoing project to widen the 401 from east of McLaughlin Rd. to the Credit River.

The closure will be implemented to facilitate the transfer of the westbound travelled lanes from the existing lanes to the newly constructed future collector lanes.

Two detour routes are available during the full closure:


Detour 1

Also, the westbound express lanes of the 401 will be closed west of Dixie Road from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018

This closure will be implemented to facilitate restaging of travel lanes. The traffic will be moved from the 401 westbound express lanes to the collector lanes east of Dixie Road.

Dates for the Highway 401 Westbound closures may change subject to weather conditions.
