Highway 401 Widening Through Peel Region - Status Report
 

Regional Council received the Status Report on Highway 401 Widening through Peel Region from the Planning Department, urging the Province to commit funding and commence widening of Highway 401 from the Highway 410 and 403 interchange westerly to the Credit River. The report also requests that the preliminary design of Highway 401 improvements west of the Credit River be initiated without further delay.

Highway 401 is recognized as a key economic corridor, providing access within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), across Ontario and to the United States through border crossings at Windsor and Sarnia, carrying goods worth nearly $900 million per day. Safe and efficient goods movement plays an important role in this transportation corridor.

 Public Works
York/Peel Request for Proposal, Interim Arterial Road from the Terminus of Highway 427 to Fogal Road/Zenway Boulevard - City of Brampton, Ward 10
 

The Region of Peel will enter into a 50/50 cost sharing arrangement with the Region of York for the detailed design and contract administration of the interim arterial route from the terminus of Highway 427 to Fogal Road/Zenway Boulevard in the City of Brampton, Ward 10.

These roadway improvements are necessary to accommodate forecasted vehicular volumes prior to and after the formal extension of Highway 427 by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO).

Further, these roadway improvements are also expected to provide much needed capacity relief at the Highway 50 Queen Street East intersection; particularly the southbound to eastbound left turn movements and the westbound to northbound right turn movements.

  • Mayfield Road feedermain construction from Stonegate Drive to the future Van Kirk Road which is required to strengthen water supply. The contract was awarded to Stantec Consulting Ltd.

  • Mayfield Road transmission main construction which is required to provide supply to the existing and future growth in the Mayfield West area. The contract was awarded to Stantec Consulting Ltd.

  • Feedermain construction between Inder Heights Drive and Valleyview Road as part of the existing contract to construct the new Snelgrove Bridge and widening of Mayfield Road in the estimated amount of $650,000. The contract was awarded to Aecon Construction who is currently constructing the Mayfield Road Widening, including the replacement of the Snelgrove Bridge, between Inder Heights Drive and Valleyview Road.

Implementation of a Flashing 60 Kilometres Per Hour Speed Limit Zone on Regional Road 9 (King Street) in the Vicinity of Macville Public School - Town of Caledon, Ward 4
 

Regional Council approved decreasing the posted speed limit on Regional Road 9 (King Street) from a point 417 metres west of Regional Road 8 (The Gore Road) to 540 metres east of Centreville Creek Road from 70 kilometres per hour to a flashing 60 kilometres per hour, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:15 p.m. on school days, in the Town of Caledon, Ward 4.

A flashing 60 kilometres per hour posted speed limit zone would increase the motorist's awareness to reduce their speed when entering the school zone.
