Herb Gray Parkway nears completion
By Andrew Macklin
June 25, 2015 – An eight kilometre-long stretch of the redeveloped Highway 401 will open along the Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway corridor this weekend for the first time. The project is now 90 per cent complete.
Drivers will be able to drive uninterrupted through the parkway without traffic signals – one of the key benefits of the redevelopment. Traffic will also be shifted away from ongoing construction on the final section of the parkway.
The Tallgrass Prairie and Oak Savannah theme is integrated into all the design elements of the parkway including the on noise barriers, retaining walls, tunnel top and bridge barrier walls.
