Hwy 427 extension and Peel regional road network improvements

The Region of Peel has been working with MTO and York Region on the recent Highway 427 expansion to Major Mackenzie Road, east of Hwy 50.

The Highway 427 Extension will relieve significant traffic away from Highway 50 and the surrounding road network.

The Region is closely monitoring traffic volumes on Highway 50, Coleraine Drive and Mayfield Road and has taken steps to adjust signal timing, to ensure that the traffic flows stay optimized, given the recent opening of the extension and widening of Major Mackenzie Road.

The Region has a comprehensive plan to manage future volumes of traffic in the area through upcoming road improvement plans.

Future road improvement plans include:

These projects will take place over the next 5-7 years and will significantly enhance the road network and address future traffic needs for the travelling public.
