Potential Widening of Highway 410 in Brampton: Residents Invited to Provide Feedback

The Ministry of Transportation is considering a project to widen a portion of Highway 410 in Brampton, and residents who regularly use the highway are invited to share their input.

A public information session will be held on May 29 at 4 p.m. in the auditorium of the Professor’s Lake Recreation Centre (1660 North Park Dr.) to gather feedback on preliminary design recommendations and potential mitigation strategies to minimize impacts on the community and the environment.

The project, undertaken by AECOM Canada Ltd., involves a preliminary design and class environmental assessment study for improvements starting south of Queen Street and extending north of Bovaird Drive. Proposed changes include widening the highway, implementing High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes, and evaluating the condition of existing infrastructure such as bridges, culverts, retaining walls, noise walls, and traffic signals.

The project aims to ensure that Highway 410 can adapt to the evolving needs of the community. The consultation program will include meetings with municipal staff, council, emergency service providers, regulatory agencies, transit operators, Indigenous communities, and residents who will be directly impacted.

Residents are encouraged to attend the session and provide their valuable feedback. For more information and to learn about the proposed improvements, please visit the project’s website.
