Overhead signage at the loop ramp to Highway 401 East.  Highway 407 has been widened several times through Mississauga since its initial opening in 1998.  When first constructed, Highway 407 was opened with only four lanes between Highway 403 in Mississauga and Highway 410.  Later, in 2004, Highway 407 was widened to six lanes between this interchange and Highway 410.  In 2007 the tollway was widened again, this time to eight lanes easterly from this interchange.  Finally, in 2011, Highway 407 was widened to six lanes between Highway 403 in Mississauga and this interchange.

Highway 407 looking east from the Winston Churchill Road overpass in western Mississauga.  These photos show the progress of two widening projects that took place during the 2000s.  During the 2004 construction season, Highway 410 was widened from four to six lanes (three per direction) between Highway 401 and Hurontario Street.  Later, in 2007, Highway 407 was widened again, this time from six lanes to eight lanes (four per direction) between Highway 401 and Highway 427.

Easterly view from Heritage Drive along Highway 407.  The rate at which western Brampton has developed around Highway 407 is astounding.  Numerous prominent employers have located in Northwestern Mississauga, and Southwestern Brampton adjacent to both Highway's 401 and 407 in recent years.

Easterly view from the Mississauga Road overpass towards Financial Drive and Mavis Road.  Often times my photos of the 407 show deceivingly low traffic volumes along the tollway.  Off-peak traffic on the 407 is typically light, (why pay for a toll road when the 401 isn't congested?).  At peak times, however, while the tollway is seldom congested, it is very well utilized.

Advanced signage for Mavis Road.  This signage was made for Highway 407 by a private sign shop, not MTO's signage department.  Though the quality of the sign is quite good, notice that 'Mavis Road' is written only on a single line.  MTO standard signage would have written 'Mavis Road' on two lines.

Overhead sign for in advance of Hurontario Street.  Much like the advanced sign posted at Mavis Road, this sign indicating Hurontario Street as Highway 10 was erected long after the connecting link through Mississauga and Brampton was repealed.  Despite the fact that the Highway 10 reference is indeed an error, for historical reasons I hope that this sign is never replaced.

Overhead signage at the eastbound ramp to Highway 410.  Take a look at how big the pull-through signage is for Highway 407.  All the new signs that went up when the highway was widened to eight lanes are this massive.  It's a nicely designed sign, but I question if the size was necessary.

Two views looking easterly from the Goreway Drive overpass.  In this photo, both the on-and off-ramp toll collection gantries are visible.  The toll collection gantries work by first sending a radio transmission to detect traffic.  This radio transmission detects if a transponder is present, and signals a series of laser beams to sweep the road and identify the type of vehicle passing through the sensor.  Dependant upon if a transponder has been detected or not, a series of digital cameras then take overlapping photos of the roadway to identify vehicle license plates.  Most license plates are recognized by computer software, however errant plates still require human eyes to identify the plate number.

Two views looking westerly from the Highway 50 overpass.  While I certainly don't at all fault the 407 Consortium for being as aggressive to widen the highway to keep up with demand as they have; it is a shame that it cost the grassed median that the freeway was constructed with.  I have always preferred driving beside well manicured grass rather than a concrete wall.
