During the 2006 and 2007 construction seasons, Highway 406 will be widened from a 2-lane at-grade expressway to a 4-lane freeway between Port Robinson Road and the current end of the divided freeway about 1km south of Beaverdams Road.  This construction is expected to be completed by mid-Summer 2007.

During the years 2012 and 2015, the remainder of Highway 406 was widened to four lanes through Welland, between East Main Street and Port Robinson Road.
