The province has released a request for proposals for the
second phase of the Highway 407 East project, which will extend the highway
about 22 kilometres eastward from Harmony Road in Oshawa to Highway 35/115 in
Clarington. It will have eight interchanges and a 10-kilometre north-south
highway, the East Durham Link, to connect it to Highway 401. The section from
Harmony Road to the East Durham Link is expected to be open to traffic in late
2017, with the remaining portions to be completed by late 2020.

Three companies have been short-listed to deliver the
project – Blackbird Infrastructure Group, East End Transportation Group and
407E Infrastructure Group.

The first phase of Highway 407 East extends from Brock Road
in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa. It is currently under construction and
is expected to be completed by late 2015.
