City of Brant County This view looks northerly along Highway 24 where Highway 5 ran concurrent with Highway 24.  Note the rather odd four-lane cross-section.  Few rural highways in Ontario were ever built to a four lane cross-section without a flush median to separate opposing flows.

City of Brant County Looking west towards the northern Highway 24 junction west of St. George.  At this junction, through traffic must turn left to continue along Highway 5.  The installation of traffic signals was a welcome addition to this intersection, however it is a shame it came at the cost of the former northbound to eastbound channel.

City of Hamilton Distance signage facing westbound motorists along Highway 5 west of the Highway 6 junction.  Given the highways that remain in provincial jurisdiction in this portion of south-central Ontario, this sign should list Cambridge as a control city.

City of Hamilton View looking easterly approaching the Highway 6 junction from Highway 5.  From this junction westerly, with the exception of a short segment within the village of Waterdown itself, the former Highway 5 is no less than a four-lane arterial highway easterly all the way to the Kingston Road interchange in Scarborough, which is some 50km away.

Highway 6 crosses Highway 5 at Clappison's Corner; Highway 5 is bound for Waterdown and Peters Corners.  Click here for Highway 6 images.
City of Hamilton Westerly view at Clappinsons Corners.  At one time this busy intersection was home to numerous businesses catering to the weary traveler.  During the past decade these old buildings have been purchased and raised by the Ontario Government in preparation for the construction of an interchange to replace this intersection.  It is expected, though not official, that a new partial cloverleaf interchange favouring Highway 6 will be constructed at this location within the decade (text written in 2010).

This view looks southeasterly towards the structure that carries Highway 5 overtop of Highway 407.  Highway 5 crosses Highway 407 on a large four span structure due to the significant skew that the two highways intersect at.

City of Toronto As part of a project to rehabilitate the southbound collector lanes of Highway 427, the terminal of the southbound off-ramp to Highway 5 was widened to include a three lane left turn onto eastbound Highway 5.  This was done to add a dedicated left turn lane to transit vehicles in order to facilitate their movement into the diamond lane along Highway 5.  During this work, the channelized right turn onto Highway 5 West was also removed.

Proper Municipality Name Photo Description Photo
City of Toronto A special ramp was created linking the express lanes of Highway 427 to Dundas street via Cloverdale Road.  This ramp is important, since without it, Highway 5 (Dundas Street) would not be accessible from the 427 express lanes coming from the QEW.

City of Toronto This sign follows the previous advanced signage for the slip ramp. Notice in this case, that the highway sign is actually located after the ramp.  This type of location for a sign is atypical of Ontario's freeways.
