More highway construction is coming. The federal and provincial governments have given the thumbs up for almost 100 million dollars to be spent on The Queensway.
This money would be used for the widening of Highway 417, for the 3 kilometre stretch between Maitland Avenue and Island Park Drive. Each direction would be widened by one line, making the total of lanes increase from six lanes to eight, with 4 lanes going in each direction.
There is no date for the construction to begin. Many people are not in favour of the project, saying that those funds would make a significant dent in transit expansion projects, especially for light rail heading west to Kanata.
