The province announced recently that work is set to begin on building the new Highway 407 East from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa. The $1-billion project will create 900 direct construction jobs as well as “thousands more spin-off jobs in local companies,” according to a press release. Construction is set to begin this fall and is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.

“The development of new highway infrastructure is an essential element of Building Together, Ontario’s 10-year infrastructure plan. Highway 407 East will help drivers move more efficiently, support local businesses by providing better access to communities, create jobs and strengthen our economy for many years to come,” said Bob Chiarelli, Minister of Infrastructure, and Minister of Transportation, in a release.

The second phase of the extension will bring the 407 to Highway 35/115 by 2020.

Highway 407 East is being delivered using the province’s alternative financing and procurement delivery model, which is managed by Infrastructure Ontario.
