Tolls to HWY 407 and 412 extension to start February 1st

407-toll-sign.jpgThe free ride is coming to an end for users of the new section of Highway 407 and Highway 412. The Highway 407, which was extended eastward from Brock Road in Pickering to Harmony Road in Oshawa, and Highway 412 which connects Highway 407 to the 401, opened last June.

Although drivers could travel free of charge while the tolling infrastructure was being installed and calibrated, as of February 1st, drivers who take Highway 407 and Highway 412 will start paying road tolls. Drivers who use the highways will get one bill, which will be issued by the 407 ETR.

Revenue generated from tolls will be used towards Ontario’s transportation infrastructure, which will help ensure that we can deliver critical projects exactly like these for years to come.” Says Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation

Construction projects are currently underway to extend Highway 407 east from Harmony Road to Highway 35 and 115, and to connect Highway 407 and Highway 401 via the future Highway 418.

The toll announcement comes after Toronto city council approved Mayor John Tory's plan to put tolls on the Don Valley Parkway and Gardiner Expressway.
