County of Renfrew
Two easterly views from the White Lake Road overpass.  During construction, when the upper photos were taken, both directions of Highway 417 crossed the Madawaska River atop of a new high-level bridge that will serve the westbound lanes of the freeway when highway twinning is completed.  The structure that will become the eastbound lanes, originally carried both directions of Highway 17.  Construction to twin the Arnprior by-pass was staged differently than most other recent twinning projects.  Before the freeway opened, there were three major at-grade intersections along Highway 17 serving Arnprior.  Those intersections were located at: Baskin Drive, White Lake Road and Division Street.  Because all of those access points to Arnprior were consolidated into a single interchange, it was imperative that the interchange be open to traffic prior the closure of the two other intersections.  The freeway is completed in the lower photo.

A series of views looking easterly across the twin Madawaska Bridge structures.  The upper photo shows Highway 17 while it was still a two lane highway crossing the Madawaska River.  When the 2004 photo was taken, the 417 had just been extended to the top of the pictured hill.  The middle photos show the construction staging for the completion of Highway 417 around Arnprior.  The future westbound structure was placed into service during 2011.  The pre-existing structure (which now carries the eastbound lanes) was rehabilitated during 2011 and 2012.  Construction on the 417 extension through Arnprior was completed in the autumn of 2012.

Upper photo taken: October 23rd, 2004.

City of Ottawa  A series of three views looking easterly as Highway 417 crosses overtop of the Madawaska River bridge.  Highway 417 crosses the Madawaska River immediately downstream of the Arnprior dam.  The Arnprior dam is one of a series of dams that control the flow of the Madawaska River and generate hydro-electric power for the surrounding communities.

City of Ottawa Two views of the twin Ottawa Valley Railway bridge structures that carry Highway 417 overtop of the former railway line.  The upper photo faces to the southeast and highlights the newer westbound span while the lower photo faces to the southwest and highlights the older eastbound span.  The Ottawa Valley Railway was abandoned during the fall of 2011.  The rail line was abandoned before construction on the grade separations between the rail line and the new highway were even completed.
