Ram through the expressway?!? It's about time it got built. Without it, there is absolutely no way that downtown could ever see any sort of traffic relief. Not to mention the incredible hazard Highway 20 currently is to pedestrians and cyclists.

I had the fortune of touring the project during the construction phase and used to work with the lead engineer on the project. The expressway has also won an award for it's care with respect to environmental concerns and engineers from several countries have come to tour the realignment of the Red Hill Creek which has received the Consulting Engineers of Ontario Award of Environmental Infrastructure and is currently the longest, continuous creek restoration project using natural channel design (which i might add is spectacular!). We have new large "container" sewer and a new CSO tank which lowers the emission of pollutants into the creek, the Rennie Street contaminated landfill has been removed...do I need to keep going?
