401 To Close Saturday Night

It’s goodbye to the old and in with the new on Saturday night, but Hwy. 401 will close to see the change.

Crews will demolish the Westminster Bridge over the highway on Saturday night. The closure will begin at 8pm Saturday night and will re-open Sunday morning at 8am.

The entire bridge replacement will take about a month, so Westminster Dr. can be widened where it crosses the 401.

Until August, expect Westminster Dr. to stay closed for the project’s completion, and the 401 to be reduced by one lane in each direction.

Hwy. 401 will be closed in both directions from Wellington Rd. to Colonel Talbot Rd. overnight. Drivers will be detoured up Colonel Talbot Rd. and across to Hwy. 402.
