Displaced By The 401 – 1956

From the Windsor Daily Star – August 30, 1956:

    DISPLACED BY 401 – Six houses are being moved to make way for an overpass for Highway 401. This is being moved along North Talbot Rd., between Howard Ave. and Walker Rd., to its new location, a trip of about a mile.

So last time a highway was built through Windsor, they moved six houses to a new location, rather than demolish them when the 401 came to town. How many houses were moved when the parkway came to town? When did it stop becoming feasible to move buildings? Seems like building got moved fairly often in the past…
