Canada, Ontario to improve safety on Hwy. 401 corridor

by Canadian Shipper

WINDSOR, ON-Chatham- Construction has begun to widen Highway 401 leading to Canada’s busiest border crossing at Windsor, Ontario. Construction is now beginning to improve Highway 401 in Essex County on a 13-kilometre stretch from Puce Road to Manning Road.

The first project to widen Highway 401 from Highway 77 to Essex Road 42 has been underway since spring 2004 and is expected to be complete by this fall.

Work on this second phase includes: widening from four to six lanes, building a concrete median barrier to prevent head on collisions, and improving both the Manning Road and Puce Road interchanges to handle more traffic and further enhance safety.
