Highway 407/418 construction
« on: July 17, 2016, 09:09:09 PM »

What is the current/near future (as of end August 2016) status of the Highway 407 extension and future 418? Is there construction worth seeing? Is there a good detailed map that I can find without crashing my browser going through the ETR website?

A map can be found here.  Not much to see yet, aside from some moved earth:

I was trying to get there before and my browser couldn't handle it. Thanks.
Now, is there a Detailed Construction Schedule that says when at least grading begins?

If there is a detailed construction schedule publicly available I haven't seen it.  The sections that will be opening the soonest are segments C1 and D1A, so those should be the most advanced.  I think they may have girders up on the Winchester Road bridge at the western end of the project, but the vantage point that showed off that segment of the highway that we looked at after the Toronto meet has been removed and is no longer easily accessible.
