Highway 401 looking west from the Highway 37 overpass near Belleville.  This photo shows the recently rehabilitated Moira River Bridge, and more notably the Highway 62/401 cloverleaf.  The Belleville cloverleaf is one of the last surviving interchanges of this type left in the province.  Before the parclo became dominant, the cloverleaf was the most common interchange used in the province, particularly prevalent at the junction of two highways.

City of Belleville Westerly view from the Mitchell Road overpass.  Mitchell Road was the last grade-separation to be completed along the 401.  MTO documents from this era indicate that it was a dangerous intersection prior to the construction of the grade separation.

City of Belleville Easterly view along Highway 401 from Mitchell Road.  When this was an at-grade intersection, the narrow highway median did not provide motorists with much refuge between the opposing carriageways when they crossed the highway.

Looking westerly from the Wyman's Road overpass.  The Belleville By-pass segment of Highway 401 ended at Wyman's Road from 1958 until the highway was extended easterly in 1963.  During this time, a temporary curve linked the southern leg of Wyman's Road to Highway 401, with Wyman's Road carrying through traffic southerly to Highway 2.  Today, aside from its wide road platform, the southern leg of Wyman's Road looks typical of any other Hastings County township road.

Easterly view from the Wyman's Road overpass towards Highway 401.  Because the highway is newer to the east of this overpass than it is to the west, the central median is built to a more modern standard and is wider east of Wyman's Road.

Until the summer of 2008, this turn-off was signed with an old angular sign board.  Angular sign exit sign boards were once standard for turn-off signs on freeways, but have been phased out almost entirely.

Easterly view of Highway 401 from Highway 49.  The ramps between Highway 401 and 49 cross a small creek that runs through the interchange.  The ramp structure features an open concrete parapet barrier.  This barrier design was used fairly extensively along Ontario highways built in the early 1960s.  Today, however, there are few surviving examples of this style of barrier remaining in service.
