The work to expand Highway 417 from Nicholas to the Split is winding down. Starting Sunday June 28, a dedicated bus lane on Highway 417 in both directions will be used so the O-Train Confederation Line project can start converting the Transitway from Hurdman to Blair to a Light Rail Transit system.
