Making the Connection.
Since the late-1990s, the Ontario Government has toyed with the idea of creating a bypass between Highway 400 and Highway 404 – widely known as the “Bradford Bypass.” Now that the provincial environmental assessment has been undertaken and approved, it’s time to get excited.
Similar to the Hwy 404 extension that opened in September 2014, the Bradford Bypass would help to reduce congestion and commute times, create jobs, as well as improve economies and provide access to commercial and industrial opportunities in smaller towns just outside of the GTA.
“The suggested 16.2 km route would connect with Highway 400 between Line 8 and Line 9 in Bradford West Gwillimbury. The four lane highway would then proceed southeast, crossing over the West Holland River into East Gwillimbury, and continue east before crossing the East Holland River – passing immediately south of the Silver Lakes Golf and Country Club. Proceeding parallel with the Queensville sideroad – the bypass would eventually connect at Highway 404 just north of Queensville. Drivers would also be given westward access to the Bradford Bypass via an interchange located on Leslie Street.”
With this extension, the provincial Growth Plan forecasts employment to grow in York Region from 565,000 to 900,000 jobs in 2041 and in Simcoe County from 195,000 to 304,000 in 2041!
Soon to be connected in every direction, Queensville is a visionary new town in Ontario that offers modern living in a natural setting with excellent schools, great shopping, restaurants, and above all, easy access to the 404, putting you minutes from Newmarket and Aurora, and soon, other towns throughout the GTA. Welcome to a warm place for you and your family to call home.
