When the 404 extension is complete, it's expected the area will become the most valuable economic employment corridor in the Greater Toronto/Golden Horseshoe Area.
East Gwillimbury Mayor, Jamie Young stressed that extending Hwy 404 is critical to the area and York Region. It will mean jobs for East Gwillimbury and York Region Residents. As well, the extension will allow people to work closer to home and will have more time to spend with their families, rather than on the rural roads to and from their work place.
