City of Toronto Southerly view as the ramp to Eglinton Avenue departs from Highway 27.  Highway 27 meets Eglinton Avenue at a half-cloverleaf interchange that favours movements to the east.  When the Eglinton Avenue interchange was first constructed, it was assumed that Eglington Avenue would be converted to the Richview Expressway through Etobicoke.

City of Toronto A rather odd sign denoting the northern 'terminus' of Highway 427.  Though this particular sign was recently erected, an ends sign has existed at this location for a number of years.  This sign marks the northern end of the MTO's jurisdiction over Highway 27.

City of Toronto Southerly view from the CN Weston subdivision railway overpass along Highway 27.  This section of Highway 27 has been rehabilitated by the City of Toronto since it was transferred.  The pink stamped concrete in the central median is indicative of a city built roadway.

City of Toronto Northerly view from CN's Weston subdivision towards the Woodbine race track entrance overpass.  This is likely the oldest overpass built by the province still standing in Toronto.

(720x480)     (1440x960)     (2400x1600)

City of Toronto This view looks southerly towards the Woodbine race track overpass.  Highway 27 is a controlled access highway for virtually its entire length within the City of Toronto.  This interchange, as well as the interchange with Dixon Road have existed along the highway since the 1950s.  Given the (former) highway's high design standards and access control, I suspect that at some point the province was planning on converting Highway 27 to a freeway along this alignment.

City of Toronto Southerly view towards the traffic signal at Carrier Drive.  I took numerous photos of Highway 27 through northwestern Etobicoke because the highway exhibits a unique vintage.  Most older four-lane (or wider) highways across the GTA have been reconstructed more recently than Highway 27.

City of Vaughan

Regional Municipality of York

Looking south along Highway 27 from the Highway 407 overpass.  Interestingly, this overpass was built in the early 1990s, well in advance of Highway 407's completion.  This structure pre-dates the highway being constructed with private revenue.

This sign is located northwest-bound along Highway 26/27just southeast of the Highway 26/27 junction.  This sign is very odd for an Ontario highway, as its very unusual to see multiple routes suggested for the same destination.  This sign has since been removed.
