417 Eastbound On-Ramp Closure (at Westgate)

417 E-E On-Ramp Closure

Last week the Ministry of Transportation advised that the 417 East-East on-ramp at Westgate will close permanently on Monday, March 26. The closure is associated with the Province’s 417 widening project from Maitland to Island Park, and was approved by the Minister as part of that project’s Environmental Assessment process. I have secured funding for speed humps on Coldrey Avenue to help mitigate the anticipated cut through traffic from the ramp closure.

I will continue to work with the Ministry and City on this project and will keep local residents informed as this unfolds.
