Highway 401 looking east from the Highway 29 overpass in Brockville.  Highway 401's median is quite narrow through Brockville, it is hard to imagine that at one point, the two carriageways would have been separated only by a small ditch, instead of the modern tall wall concrete barrier that stands today.

City of Brockville Eastbound signage at the North Augusta Road interchange.  Angled exit signage such as this were once the norm on Ontario freeways, however they have been phased out gradually since the 1980s.  This is the last angled sign to be situated on an overhead sign in the province.

City of Brockville Westerly view from the North Augusta Road overpass.  The lands bordering the North Augusta Road interchange along Highway 401 have become the Brockville region's big-box shopping area.  I was surprised at the diversity of stores that were present for a city the size of Brockville.

View looking westerly towards Brockville from the Sharpe's Lane overpass.  Brockville is one of Ontario's oldest cities, featuring a historic and very well kept downtown.  For anybody not in a hurry traveling along Highway 401, I would definitely recommend trying Highway 2 through Downtown as an alternate to the freeway.

Highway 401 driving east at the Highway 416 interchange near Prescott.  The ramp from the EB 401 to the NB 416 is a very modern high-speed flyover.  The flyover has a 130km/h design speed, and features an anti-icing technology that sprays a chemical deicer over the road surface when the temperature drops near the freezing mark.  This de-icing system is known as FAST (Fixed anti-icing spray technology).
