Freeway:  Entire Length.  (11 interchanges)

AADT (2002):  Highest: 138,000, from Highway 401 northerly to Courtneypark Drive;

                             Lowest:  98,000, from Williams Parkway northerly to Bovaird Drive.

Road Info:  Highway 410 is a very busy highway.  Its a fairly new freeway, and is well designed to carry large volumes of traffic well.  The 410 varies from six to eight lanes through the older sections of highway through Brampton.  The 2007, and 2009 highway extensions provide four freeway lanes, however these sections were designed to easily be widened to six lanes when traffic volumes warrant.  A recently released travel times survey conducted by the MTO found that Highway 410 in the southbound direction was the second slowest highway in the GTA during the morning rush hour.  Average speed drops to approximately 38km/h.  Average speed in 2006 was clocked at 71km/h, nearly twice as fast as the 2008 commute.  As such, travel to and from Brampton along Highway 410 is best done during off-peak times.  Highway 410 has a posted speed limit of 100km/h south of Mayfield Drive, and is posted at 80km/h north of Mayfield Road for the transition to Highway 10.

History of Highway 410:

The highway first opened as a two-lane at-grade highway bypassing Highway 10 to the east in 1979.  During the mid 1980s the northern (more urban) portion of Highway 410 was completely grade separated; Access to and from Highway 410 to these newly grade separated roads was maintained through quasi interchanges that somewhat resemble the connector roads seen today on Highway 7 through central York Region.  In the late 1980s and early 1990s, extensive construction upgraded the full length of the route to a full freeway.  This work included the construction of the southern carriageway (two way traffic had previously been routed along only the northbound carriageway), and the construction of grade separations and interchanges on the southern portion of the highway.  Since that time, Highway 410 has become a very busy 6-8 lane freeway throughout its entire length.  During the mid and late 2000s, work was underway to extend the 410 northerly from Bovaird Drive to meet Highway 10 at Valleywood, just to the north of Brampton.  The first phase of this three phase project included a new overpass to carry Sandlewood Parkway over the extended highway, as well as grading between Bovaird Drive and Sandlewood Parkway.  This phase was completed in 2004. though the highway wasn't opened to traffic until the completion of phase 2.  Construction was stalled for two years, but resumed in 2006 with construction starting on grading and advanced structures between Sandlewood and Mayfield Drive.  Phase two was opened to traffic in the Fall of 2007.  Construction started on phase three during the summer of 2007, with all lanes open to traffic on November 16, 2009.
