Highway 401 - Page 8 - Images


Starting in 2011, Highway 401 will undergo reconstruction and widening from the McLaughlin Road overpass to the Highway 410/403 interchange in Mississauga.  This construction project will see Highway 401 widened from six to twelve lane lanes, as collector lanes are extended westerly through the project area.  This project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013.

Photos taken during construction:

Easterly view from the McLaughlin Road overpass.  Much of the concrete surface for the future collector lanes had been laid by the time this photo was taken. The westbound collector lanes currently end at a dramatic stub. View looking westerly from the Hurontario Street overpass. The concrete surface of the eastbound collector lane ends before the temporary on-ramp from Hurontario Street South.

View looking westerly towards the half finished Hurontario Road overpass. Standing on the future eastbound collector lanes between Hurontario Street and Kennedy Road. Easterly view towards the Kennedy Road overpass.  This overpass was constructed several decades in advance of the 401 being widened.

Centralized view from the Kennedy Road overpass.  The express lane ramp to Hurontario Street passes underneath of the collector lanes. When this photo was taken, the ramp from Highway 410 South deposited traffic onto the future westbound collector lanes.  Westerly view from the Kennedy Road overpass towards the Highway 410/403 interchange. Another view easterly from the Kennedy Road overpass.  The eastbound approach to the 410 ramp was reconstructed as part of this highway contract.

View looking southerly along the eastern facade of the new Hurontario Street structure.  Remnants of the wingwalls of the former structure are visible adjacent to the future express lanes. Easterly view from the Hurontario Street overpass. Westerly view from the Kennedy Road overpass.  The westbound collector lanes opened to through traffic in the middle of December, 2013. Advanced signage for the westbound exit to Hurontario Street from the newly opened collector lanes.  Note Mississauga is spelled incorrectly on the left signage.

Centralized view from the Kennedy Road overpass.  When the westbound collectors were first opened to traffic, the collectors narrowed to a single lane before merging with the express.  This configuration caused substantial congestion. Evening view focused on the new westbound collector lanes.  Note the airplane on descent to nearby Pearson Airport.

A similar perspective from the previous photo.  The tire tracks on the highway immediately before the collector to express split seems to indicate some drivers unpreparedness for the lane configuration.  Another easterly view.  The eastbound collector lanes curve around the incoming on-ramp from Highway 410 which joins the collectors on the left.
