View looking easterly along Highway 401 from the Highway 24 overpass.  Between Highway 24 and Franklin Boulevard, Highway 401 has an auxiliary lane that connects the two interchanges.  This is the closest Highway 401 comes to an eight lane configuration west of the Mississauga.  The Highway 24 interchange is a standard parclo A4 of considerable footprint.  Cameron Bevers has some great aerials of this interchange on his TheKingsHighway.ca site.

Advance signage for the Franklin Boulevard interchange.  I included this photo because the advanced signage for Franklin Boulevard is one of the few advanced exit signs in Southwestern Ontario that still features an exit tab with the word 'Exit' on it.

This view looks easterly as the ramp from Highway 401-East leads to the Hanlon Expressway.  The Hanlon favours movements between Cambridge and Guelph; likely because when the Hanlon was first constructed, Highway 24 traffic was still directed through Downtown Hespeler.  Downtown Hespeler was not indicative of high-speed through traffic.

Reassurance marker for Highway 401 between the two Highway 6's.  Interestingly, Highway 6 is signed with a trailblazer southbound, and with nothing northerly.  I am not sure why MTO is so reluctant to place Highway 6 shields where it runs concurrent with 400-series highways.

Signage eastbound along Highway 401 taken from just beyond the western Highway 6 interchange.  Signs reading "next exit" are not generally used on provincial freeways, however it is useful in this application given the short concurrency of Highway 6 with the 401

Looking east along Highway 6/401 from the Concession Road 7 overpass.  The 401 between the Highway 6 junctions is the busiest rural freeway in Ontario.  Plans have been drafted to link the Highway 6 interchanges, without the concurrent routing along Highway 401.  This link was first envisioned when the Hanlon was constructed, however such a link has never progressed past the conceptual phase.

Looking east from the Highway 6-South overpass towards Toronto.  Surprisingly, this interchange has always been of a parclo A2 configuration.  All other interchanges between two highways along Highway 401 between Milton and Kitchener (which opened in 1960) were initially constructed as full cloverleaf interchanges.

View looking easterly along Highway 401 as the highway passes underneath of Nassagaweya Line 1.  The 1960s-vintage structures erected along much of Highway 401 utilize this concrete ridged frame design.  The upper photo shows the structure while it retained its original painted steel railings.,  In my opinion, these railings really add to the highways pleasant aesthetics.  Understandably these ornamental steel railings are no longer an accepted design in the OPSD, and the railings were replaced as part of a recent structural rehabilitation project.
