Work on Highway 417 will close Leitrim underpass starting May 2

_ (press release) _ Construction work currently underway on Highway 417 from Anderson Road to Limoges Road will require closing the Leitrim Road underpass in both directions from May 2 until October.


A signed detour will be in place during the underpass closure.


Throughout the 2016 construction season, day-time and night-time lane closures will occur on Highway 417 from Anderson Road to Limoges Road. Short-term closures of the ramps at Anderson Road, Boundary Road and Rockdale Road will also be needed.


Last year, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario began the realignment of Highway 417 eastbound and westbound at Bear Brook Creek, including the construction of two new Bear Brook Creek bridges, rehabilitation of the Piperville Road underpass, the Leitrim Road underpass, and paving work at Anderson Road. The asphalt on Highway 417 is also being rehabilitated.
