    Roads: Ambassador & Gordie Howe Bridges

    I worked at one of the Ontario Travel Information Centres at a border crossing for a few summers and the ignorance of some travellers left me shaking my head.

    402 from exit 15 -> 25 is concrete from when it was last rebuilt late 90's - early 2000's. This was the last section to be rebuilt - the standard must have changed [or contractor] because everything else was done in asphalt.

    Highway 40 has been promised expansion for decades... as someone who grew up in the area, I'll believe it when I see it.

    Roads: Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Highway 410 (MTO, U/C, Planned)

    Not much different than EB at Leslie. Better to move over at Yorkdale than attempt to wait until Bayview.

    GO Transit: Construction Projects (Metrolinx, various)

    There's one just west of Kitchener that's a farm / trail parking crossing with no electronic signal, just the X sign and instruction to stop.

    Toronto GO Transit: Davenport Diamond Grade Separation | ?m | ?s | Metrolinx

    Reminds me of the Ocean. Into Charny then back to the main line. Into Matapedia; front of train split off and went to Gaspe (when it was still a thing) then two engines return back to the front of the train to keep pulling to Halifax. Very confusing sight to see first thing in the morning when...

    GO Transit: Service thread (including extensions)

    I'm sure many who have traveled have a story of an unfortunate breakdown at an inconvenient time. Mine includes a trip from Linz to Prague that changed from 1 train to 3 trains, 3 buses, and a 9 hour delay with a language barrier and multiple points where we thought we had been abandoned.

    Waterloo Region Transit Developments (ION LRT, new terminal, GRT buses)

    Going up. I don't have hard figures, but they're in the middle of a facility expansion with new baggage claim and expanded departures lounge as well as a new long-term parking. Flair has added a significant option and it seems people are taking advantage.

    In looking for the location of Crewsons, I discovered satellite view has a 6 car train passing through... https://goo.gl/maps/jQXT2tF2kS2KfxJeA I guess they're not in the business of clearing tracks of trains as they are of clearing highways of cars for their imagery.

    In the mid 90's a GO trainset was used to ferry passengers through the newly completed St. Clair River Tunnel between Sarnia and Port Huron for a weekend. Passengers got off on the other side and hopped back in line to return to their country of origin. Pre 2001 and a special event, but it did...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    If/when this ever happens, it should be fairly straightforward. The right of way exists already, although the highway crosses from the one side to the other south of the CN overpass. I also recall some discussion about making it controlled access beyond London Road / 402. There were objections...

    Roads: Ontario/GTA Highways Discussion

    To be fair, this has been on the books for decades. I grew up in the area and remember hearing about this as a kid 30+ years ago. It may be expedited by the city's high capacity load corridor they've been working on to safely get materials from the docks to the refineries in the Chemical Valley...

    No. There's a spur immediately west of the overpass. https://goo.gl/maps/d3byRA8fSSVVjT1t6
