Highway 401 Widening - Highway 8 to Townline Road
Two minor updates from this stretch:

1. I noticed earth moving equipment near the CP overpass today. It's been a while since I've been able to get a good look at the area, so I can't tell if much has changed. Still not very clear on what the metal cylinders are, but there are a number of them laying on the ground just west of the CP line (they've been there for months)
2. Looks like they are slowly working on the centre median and almost ready to repave the space between the barriers on the Hespeler end.
When on earth is this scheduled to be done? Or at least the 8/401 interface?

The rate things are going, they'll be replacing the highway 8 overpass by the time they are ready to finish the construction on the widening.
According to the Ontario southern highways improvement program (http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/highway...rams.shtml), 2019 with the Hespeler to Townline stretch being completed in 2021.
LOL, I love how it’s just a year.

Why do projects like this get to have such wild and massive unspecific timelines and nobody cares, and people lose their shit when ion slips a few months?
