Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Townline Road
Imagine they needed 89 hours.

Quote:Highway 401 eastbound off ramp to Franklin Boulevard southbound (Interchange 282), Cambridge, closed to traffic, Friday, September 14th, 2018 until Friday, September 28th, 2018 for construction work operations, weather permitting and advanced signing in place.

Wow, thanks - that’s a very short closure! I was expecting months, not just two weeks. That’s my exit for my commute, so appreciate the update.

On Friday, on my way home I noticed they had erected two large cantilevered sign hangers on 401 EB between 8 and 24. They’re hanging over the left lanes; I have to wonder if these are for the (future, useless) HOV lanes.

Saw these too, and yes, that's exactly what they look like.

Do HOV lanes ever get policed?

You hear of people being pulled over with mannequins in the passenger seat, so it seems as such, but not sure how often they are patrolled.

When I was in California, they had signs indicating they did photo enforcement of HOV lanes.... not sure how that works, but....

We've already seen photo radar, not surprising that this exists
