City of Kingston Green advanced signage for Division Street.  On the older signage, notice the odd use of an advanced arrow instead of a distance to the ramp.  This arrow type was typically reserved for overhead signs.  This ground mounted sign likely once stood overhead before the Sir John A. Macdonald Blvd. interchange was constructed.  The newer (2012) signage omits the 'exit bar' which should be included underneath of the advanced arrow since the exiting lane has developed before the sign.

City of Kingston Green signage for the ramp to Division Street.  Oddly enough, before the Sir John A. Macdonald interchange was completed, the Division Street interchange was signed with overhead gantries.  Judging by the signage, it would appear that the Division Street overhead signs were moved to the Sir John A. Macdonald Boulevard interchange when it opened.  You can check out pictures of these signs at the VintageKingHighway website.

Highway 401 looking west from the Joyceville Road overpass, located just east of Kingston.  Joyceville Road is located at kilometre #632.  This is a fairly typical looking section of Highway 401 between Kingston and Gananoque.

Easterly view from the Joyceville Road overpass.  It is kind of a shame that so much of the 401 has such a narrow median and requires a tallwall barrier.  The scenery is so much nicer when it is not viewed overtop of a three and a half foot concrete wall.

Old style exit sign for the former Highway 32 interchange.  They do not make signs like this anymore (unfortunately).  Thanks to Josh for providing me with photos of several angular signs in Eastern Ontario.
