However, MTO has advised of the following 401 ramp closure next week:

– July 10 to 14: alternating daily closures between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., eastbound and westbound right shoulder
– May 24 to Dec. 15: day and night closure, eastbound right lane and right shoulder deviation
– May 24 to Dec. 15: day and night closure, westbound right shoulder deviation

Parks Canada is currently working to repair the damage that Kingston Mills Road incurred from high outflows from the Kingston Mills Dam in May. With high seasonal rainfall and significant flows exiting the dam, repair work is taking longer than expected. Work on the road is now expected to complete in mid-July.

In order to repair Kingston Mills Road, contractors have laid rock for fill and shoreline protection to create a strong foundation for the new embankment and protect against future erosion. The road bed will then be rebuilt, a culvert installed, and asphalt laid to complete the road. Once the road is reconstructed and construction trucks are able to access the area, asphalt will be laid on the approaches for the fixed and swing bridges, completing the entire Kingston Mills project.
