There will be alternating lane closures on Hwy 417 in both directions nightly between Nicholas Street and Cyrville Road and alternating lane closures on the westbound Hwy 174 from Montreal Road to Blair Road, overnight and daily from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Beginning Monday, Oct 21 and until Sunday, Oct 27 the centre lane on Hwy 417 in both directions between Rochester and Parkdale Avenue will also be closed nightly from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m., in addition to the current left hand lane closure.

Beginning Tuesday, Oct 22 to Wednesday, Oct 23 Hwy 417 will be closed in both directions in the vicinity of Vanier Parkway to Lees Avenue for 15-minute intervals between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Ontario Provincial Police will be on hand to direct traffic; however, motorists are urged to consider alternate routes.

Signage will be in place to advise commuters of these traffic and road changes. Motorists are also reminded to respect the reduced speed limits and use caution when travelling through construction zones. Many of these construction elements are weather dependant and may be implemented later than the dates given.

This work is being done as part of the Highway 417 expansion project, which began in May, and will add an additional lane in each direction, between Nicholas Street and the Split. The additional lane will be used for bus rapid transit during the 2015 to 2018 phase of the Confederation Line construction.

With all of the construction-related activities underway, residents are encouraged to be flexible with commuting times, stagger work hours or use other alternative means for travel. The public is asked to consider options such as transit, walking, cycling or carpooling.
