Hwy 404 Extension - Green Lane to Ravenshoe Road


The Ministry of Transportation is extending Hwy 404 from its current terminus at Green Lane just northeast of Newmarket to Woodbine Avenue at Ravenshoe Road in the Town of East Gwillimbury.  Advanced structures at Green Lane and Mount Albert Road were constructed in 2008 and 2010 respectfully.  Major grading started in 2010 for the remainder of the extension.  Construction was originally scheduled to be completed at the end of 2012, but due to on site problems, won't be completed until 2014.
