August 10, 2017 - Ontario is widening 1.6 kilometres of Highway 26 from Sixth Line to Pretty River Parkway to reduce congestion and improve road safety in Collingwood.

This section of highway will be widened to five lanes including a median shared left turning lane.

Other improvements include:
•Reconstruction and widening of the intersection of Highway 26 and Hume Street/Pretty River Parkway;
•Closure of Sixth Line at Highway 26 with a cul-de-sac and connecting it to Highway 26 via an extension of Sandford Fleming Drive; and
•Construction of a recreational trail on the north side and a sidewalk on the south side of Highway 26 between Pretty River Parkway and Marine View Drive.

Ontario will tender the project in early 2018 and construction will begin in spring 2018.
The annual average daily traffic along this stretch of Highway is 22,500 vehicles per day.
