Canada and Ontario improving Highway 402 to Sarnia, Ontario
London, Ontario – The governments of Canada and Ontario have announced the start of a project to rebuild Highway 402 east of Sarnia, Ontario to improve traffic flow and safety; the highway leads to one of the top three busiest Canada/U.S. border crossings.
Some 4,900 trucks carrying $127 million in goods cross the border from Sarnia, Ontario into Port Huron, Michigan each day. The $44 million investment will be shared by the two governments; improvements include rebuilding east- and westbound lanes on Highway 402, repairing three bridges, and upgrading the Sarnia South Truck Inspection Station to a new Commercial Vehicle Inspection Facility configuration, providing a safer and more efficient facility for inspections.
