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

    It would at least make sense to add HOV lanes to the 401 between Townline road and the new Highway 6 interchange build. That way the lane is somewhat long and some traffic tapers off the 401 east of the Highway 6 interchanges.

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

    ...Eventually :p The 401 between Highway 24 and Townline Road in Cambridge is being widened and this includes HOV lanes The Highway 6 bypass plans around Morriston also includes widening & HOV lanes on the 401/6 concurrency between the Hanlon Parkway interchange and the new interchange to be...

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

    It would stay under the 3 level structure not over it, gaining height after underpassing it to go over the 401. This is the pipe dream connection, the others are more feasible and needed. The ultimate goal of this project will see an HOV lane run on the 401 from Highway 8 in Kitchener to...

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

    Yes there is some help you can give to the 401/410 interchange to help with traffic movements. A lack of 401 express access to/from 410 can be retrofitted, and if price was no object, a 401 east express flyover to 410 could be made too. Example of what I mean. No room to build a 410S to 401W...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    If there's no toll-free to get through or around Greater Toronto, the provincial economy may suffer. People making these trips may use city streets, adding to congestion and costing the economy, or not take the trip at all and thus costing the economy. Regarding new development, highways do not...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    Huh? Toll the 401? I need a 'free way' to drive to places like Kingston and Ottawa from London. If the 401 was tolled how am I supposed to do this? If the 401 is tolled, remove the tolls on the 407. That's never goona happen but my argument stands: one needs to be free, and it's the 401...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    Can you not just make land use policies around the highway that prevent sprawl? This is the greenbelt... should just remain farmland and wooded areas just now with a highway. Of course Douggie would never allow it, his developer buddies want this highway as an excuse to build around it and...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    Could this highway be avoided if trucks could use the 407 ETR on the cheap or for free? Hmm maybe, but I doubt the 407 operators would ever agree...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    407E made logical sense as it was simply a extension of a highway that just seemingly ended at some random local road. To maximize it's usefulness it needed a connection to the 401 on the east end of Greater Toronto. May as well extend it all the way to a major road (35/115) while you're at it...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    Then you may as well extend it to the 410 then. That would essentially 'complete' both the 410 and 427 since they end at a major highway.

    https://financialpost.com/opinion/opinion-toronto-needs-highway-413 Even a short stretch of this highway, linking the 427 to the 400, would help alleviate congestion elsewhere such as the over-capacity 400/401 interchange.

    QEW? What are they doing here? Finally widening for HOVs between 403 and 427?

    So long as this new stadium is 100% privately funded, it can cost however much they want it to. Not a dime of public money should be spent or else we may have another Skydome cost overrun fiasco on our hands.

    Do these translucent roofs let in enough light to let real grass grow? The brand new Sofi / 2028 Olympic Stadium in the Los Angeles area has this tech too. It does not have a retractable field or dome. But it does not have real grass- it uses MatrixTurf so maybe not good enough for baseball...

    While the HOV lane is the leftmost lane, it is not a passing lane. It may not move the fastest but it could move more consistently and get backed up less often so your travel time may be faster on it.

    lol Yes it is excessive, but this is how you get real grass in a dome. The other ways of doing it is to create a retractable dome that doesn't cast so much shadows on the grass so it has sufficient sunlight to grow. Or have a full dome but maybe insert a large artificial lighting structure...

    The new Raiders stadium in Vegas has grass field even though it is an indoor stadium. The field is on a huge track and is moved outside so it can grow and get sunlight. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegiant_Stadium Something like this could be done. Vegas is too hot for an outdoor stadium...

    Roads: GTA West Corridor—Highway 413—Guelph to 400

    You can't really generate tolls from that though- you need a full controlled-access freeway to do that. I say this either needs to be built properly or not at all. No sense half-assing it. I for one would love to see a bypass of Toronto to get to the 400 without paying 407 prices.

    Hi! I have an answer why 401/Leslie is being reconstructed. All of the 401 bridges over the Don River are to be rebuilt in the coming years. To do this, a brand new bridge will be built, then traffic shifted to it. Then one of the existing bridges will be closed and rebuilt, then the next...
