Highway 7 - Kitchener to Guelph
Link to it on the main page, covers $75 for emergencies, which is a pretty decent cab fare to anywhere you could carpool/GRT/bike/walk, including picking up a sick kid, taking them to a doctor, and taking them home.

Let's ask General Motors about that....


While my comment was completely political, I mean no disrespect to those who have lost their jobs.  I've lost jobs and its an experience I hope to never repeat.

Why I chose to include the GM/DoFo connection, is our premier has been all about praising manufacturing jobs, and has (attempted at least) to kill jobs in the green sector.... the exact niche GM is looking to expand on.  There is no guarantee that with another premier GM would re-tool Oshawa with an electric vehicle line, but DoFo's cutting of renewable credits certainly did us no favours.  Trumps policies are similar.

They were paving the northbound ramp onto 85 from Bruce when I drove by yesterday morning on my way to work. Hopefully it reopens in a day or three.
Does anyone know when the ramp from 85S to Edna is supposed to be done? Last time I drove by, I noticed the sign says that it is supposed to be closed to Nov 2018, but it didn't seem anywhere close to being ready to me.
Drive past it every day and haven’t seen an iota of movement there. They just use it for staging equipment.

From 85S to Edna? They hadn't even started construction on that, I thought? Isn't that the extension of the 85S-Wellington exit ramp, which will pass underneath Victoria to meet up with Edna?

EDIT: Yeah, here we go. This is gonna be a while before they even start it, presumably, given Ford.

It looks to me like they've started construction on it, but that they've a ways to go before it's ready. I'm not sure if it's planned to stage it so that it returns to being a ramp direct from 85, or if it will be via Wellington as shown in the ultimate configuration.
Hm, doing the from Wellington configuration requires creating new bridges for the rail tracks, so the ramp can pass under. If they were doing that now, I'd think they'd include the other rail bridges at the same time, and I feel like we would have seen a RFQ out for it, no?
I'm sure they'll put it back in service on an alignment closer to the previous one until such time as the highway 7 project resumes.
