Provincial Announcement on Highway 400-404 Connecting Link

Chairment Statement Picture

York Regional Council and the Regional Municipality of York have long expressed our support for the Highway 400-404 Connecting Link (Bradford Bypass). The population of York Region and Simcoe County has grown significantly over the past two decades, and continues today. With a combined planned population of 2.6 million people by 2041, the Connecting Link is a key component to help manage our growth, support economic development and improve work-life balance.

A review and update of the Environmental Assessment for the Connecting Link brings us closer to constructing this vital east-west connection between Highway 400 in Bradford West Gwillimbury and Highway 404 in the Town of East Gwillimbury.

York Region appreciates the commitment of the Ontario government to advance this important project and we look forward to continued collaboration.

York Region Chairman and CEO
