Highway 401

... is an essential part of the freeway network connecting the Greater Toronto Area with southwestern Ontario and the USA, linking major urban areas and providing a corridor for international trade and economic development.
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has identified the need for improvements on Highway 401 in Cambridge, from Hespeler Road to Townline Road.
The Detailed Design and Class Environmental Assessment Study is in progress to improve the safety and operation of Highway 401 in the study area while minimizing impacts to traffic and the natural, social, and cultural environment.
The limits of the Study Area extend along Highway 401 from approximately 100 m west of Hespeler Rd to approximately 1.0 km east of Townline Rd in the City of Cambridge, Region of Waterloo.
Comments are welcome at any time during the study. The project team will make reasonable efforts to resolve issues or concerns.

The Project Team is consulting with members of the public, property owners, Provincial and Federal Government Agencies, Municipalities, Indigenous Communities, as well as stakeholders who participated in the Preliminary Design Study. A Notice of Study Commencement was provided to advise that the project is proceeding to Detailed Design and contract preparation.
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained Stantec Consulting Ltd. to undertake the Detailed Design and Class Environmental Assessment (Class EA) Study for improvements on Highway 401 from Hespeler Road to Townline Road in the City of Cambridge, Region of Waterloo.

The Preliminary Design of the project was included in the Highway 401 from Hespeler Road easterly to the Wellington County/Halton Region Boundary Study (GWP 8-00-00), which concluded with the publication of a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR). The TESR received Environmental Assessment (EA) clearance in November 2013.

Details regarding the proposed improvements along with traffic impacts and timing of construction will be available on this website, which will be maintained for the duration of the study and updated as new information becomes available. You are encouraged to check for status updates at your convenience.
