More closures coming to the 417 and 174

Expect more mayhem on the Highway as it is reduced to two lanes in both directions between Nicholas and the 174 Friday evening at 9 until Monday morning at 6.

That stretch will also close overnight at 15 minute intervals between 1a.m. and 4a.m. starting Tuesday. OPP officers will be on site to direct traffic.

There will also be occasional off-peak reductions on the highway between Kent and the 174 and between Parkdale and Rochester Streets starting Tuesday.

Highway 174 will also see off-peak lane reductions between Montreal and Blair Roads.

All of these closures are for the expansion of the highways for the LRT project. The City is asking drivers to consider other means of travel during the construction including carpooling, taking the bus, cycling, walking, or a combination of those methods.
