Learn About The Highway 407 Extension into Peterborough
Are planning to move to Peterborough, and or Lindsay area? The second phase of the Highway 407 East extension to Highway 35/115 is on schedule and will open to traffic in late 2019. The extension to Highway 35/115 is being completed in two phases. The first phase is almost done with the extension of Highway 407 from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa and the opening of Highway 412, a north-south link between Highway 407 and Highway 401 in Whitby. The second phase of Highway 407 will include four lanes of Highway 407 east from Harmony Road in Oshawa to Highway 35/115 in Clarington, Highway 418 (a new 10-kilometre four-lane highway running north-south between Highway 401 and Highway 407), and eight new interchanges. There are two stages in the second phase: the extension of Highway 407 from Harmony Road to Taunton Road will open to traffic in late 2017, and the extension from Taunton Road to Highway 35/115 (as well as the new Highway 418) will open to traffic in late 2019. The decision to open the 407 Northeast of Durham was a positive decision to do. With the increase in new homes in the Peterborough, the decision was easy to be made. With the expansion of the 407, jobs could be created, business opportunities could be made and population growth can occur.
