Ramp closures and lane reductions

Upcoming ramp closures and lane reductions on Highways 417 and 174

Starting Tuesday, May 20 until Sunday, May 25 there will be off-peak lane reductions on Highway 417 in both directions between Kent Street and the Highway 417/174 split and between Parkdale Avenue and Rochester Street. Hwy 174 westbound will also be subject to off-peak lane reductions between Montreal Road and Blair Road.

In addition to the above lane reductions, the following ramp closures will occur:

  • The southbound Vanier Parkway on-ramp to Hwy 417 eastbound is closed until Friday, May 30. Please follow the signed detour route on Terminal Avenue.
  • The southbound St. Laurent Boulevard on-ramp to Hwy 417 eastbound will be closed nightly from Monday, May 19 until Saturday, May 24.
  • The southbound Vanier Parkway on-ramp to Hwy 417 westbound will be closed nightly from Monday, May 19 until Saturday, May 24.
  • The northbound St. Laurent Boulevard on-ramp to Hwy 417 westbound will be closed nightly from Monday, May 19 until Saturday, May 24.
  • The westbound Hwy 417 off-ramp to the Vanier Parkway will be closed overnight, Wednesday, May 21 and Thursday, May 22.
  • The southbound St. Laurent Boulevard on-ramp to Hwy 417 westbound will be closed nightly from Monday, May 19 until Saturday, May 24.

Signage will be in place to advise drivers of these traffic and road changes. Motorists are also reminded to respect the reduced speed limits and use caution when travelling through construction zones. Many of these construction elements are weather-dependant and may be implemented later than the dates given above.

This work is being done as part of the Highway 417 expansion project, which began in May 2013, and will add an additional lane in each direction between Nicholas Street and the Split. The additional lane will be used for bus rapid transit during the 2015 to 2018 phase of the Confederation Line construction.
