A series of views looking westerly from the Manning Road overpass.  Photo #1 highlights the 401 before any construction activity had taken place through Manning Road.  The second photo, taken two months after the upper photo shows the eastbound carriageway reduced to a single lane with construction crews setting up the traffic staging that will allow the eastbound carriageway to carry the two way traffic.  Once two way traffic was placed on the eastbound carriageway, the westbound lanes were completely reconstructed.  The third photo in the series, jumps ahead six months in the construction phase, and shows two way traffic on the reconstructed eastbound carriageway.  With all traffic now using the widened eastbound lanes, crews turned their attention to the westbound lanes, widening them to match the eastbound carriageway.  The fourth photo, shows the highway after substantial construction had finished.  The eastbound passing lane was closed for most of 2006 in order to minimize the amount of lane drops for eastbound traffic going into the next phase of the construction project, at Puce Road.  The final photo, shows a completed six-lane Highway 401 at Manning Road.

This view looks westerly from the Lakeshore Road 113 overpass.  Highway 401 is very straight and flat through the Essex Plain.  The recently widened stretch of highway does a lot to break up the monotony of the drive.

During the 2005 reconstruction, the Highway 77/401 interchange was extensively reconstructed.  This new modern interchange replaced a very poor parclo b2 design.

A series of views looking westerly along Highway 401 from the Highway 77 overpass.  This series of views shows the sequence of events that saw Highway 401 upgraded to a six-lane cross-section between Windsor and Tilbury.  The first contract that saw Highway 401 six laned between Windsor and Tilbury took place from this interchange easterly to just east of Highway 2 in Tibury.  Construction on this segment commenced in the spring of 2004 and was substantially completed late in 2005.  More construction information and photos can be found here.
