Construction has started on a $616 million expansion of Highway 427 in Vaughan, Ont.

The highway will be extended by 6.6 kilometres from Highway 7 to Major Mackenzie Drive, and widened to eight lanes from Finch Avenue to Highway 7.

The province selected a preferred proponent to design, build, finance and maintain the Highway 427 expansion project in January 2017.

LINK 427, the winning consortium, includes:

  • Developer: ACS Infrastructure Canada and Miller Infrastructure
  • Construction: Dragados Canada, Miller Infrastructure and Bot Infrastructure
  • Design: MMM Group and Thurber Engineering
  • Maintenance: ACS Infrastructure Canada and Miller Infrastructure

A 15.5 kilometre stretch of dedicated High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes with electronic tolling will also be installed in both directions from south of Highway 409 to north of Rutherford Road. No existing general-purpose lanes will be removed to accommodate HOT lanes.

The expansion is expected to be complete in 2021.
