Highway 417 looking east from the Ottawa Road 29 overpass.  The upper photo was taken a few weeks after Highway 417 was extended westerly to just west of this interchange at Arnprior from Panmure Road.  In the 2004 photo, the right-hand westbound lane had been blocked off in order to ease the transition from a four to two lane highway.  The lower photo was taken after the highway had been extended further west through Arnprior until just east of Campbell Drive.

 

Upper photo taken: October 23rd, 2004.

 

Lower photo taken:  June 19th, 2012.

City of Ottawa View looking easterly through the median of Highway 417 towards the twin Mississippi River bridges.  These structures carry the divided highway not only overtop of the Mississippi River, but also over a large wetland along the eastern river bank.

City of Ottawa View looking westerly towards the twin highway bridges over the Mississippi River bridges along Highway 417.  Excluding the Skyway bridges along the QEW in the Golden Horseshoe, the Mississippi River structures are among the longest watercourse crossings on the 400-series of highways in Ontario.

City of Ottawa Looking west along Highway 417 from the Kinburn Sideroad.  In the distance of this photo, the twin Mississippi River bridges can be seen.  These structures were completed in 2002, (two years prior to Highway 417's opening), and represented a major engineering achievement.  The structure is located atop a large wetland and floodplain, in an area with notably poor soil quality.  Click here for this same view taken in October, 2004.

Highway 417 looking west from Panmure Road in Ottawa.  Panmure Road marks the beginning of the recently completed (September 2004) Highway 417 extension to Arnprior.  The clearing of trees that can be seen in the centre of the image marks the old Highway 17 alignment that was severed in favour of the new Highway 417 freeway.  Highway 417 was built on an entirely new alignment from Panmure Road to Arnprior, unlike previous freeway extensions from Highway 7 to Panmure Road.

City of Ottawa Looking east along Highway 417 from the Vaughan Sideroad overpass.  Notice the slight meander of the left (westbound) carriageway in the photo.  This carriageway was constructed in the mid 1960s and (quite surprisingly) was not reconstructed when the highway was twinned in the late-1990s.
