Prescott and Russell / Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Boundary
Easterly view from the Ste-Catherine Street overpass.  Highway 417 sits atop the Prescott and Russell / Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry Boundary for a considerable length.  Identifying proper road names from the freeway is often a challenge due to the lack of coordination between P & R, and S, D & G Counties.  For example, Ste-Catherine Street is P & R County Road 9, while it is S, D & G County Road 20.  Further, it is known as Highland Road in Glengarry.

Westerly view from the Greenfield Road interchange.  As is evident in the photo, Highway 417 is surfaced in concrete from west of the Greenfield Road interchange to east of Highway 34.  The concrete was placed in 2004/2005 during somewhat of a renascence period of concrete highway construction across Ontario.

Westbound signage for the McCrimmon Road interchange.  Freeway signage in the eastern part of the province differs slightly from the signage appearing in other areas.  Note that the county road number is shown beside the control city rather than with the proper road name.  Presumably this is done to reduce the overall size of the sign, however drivers wouldn't encounter a sign like this in other areas of the province.

Advanced signage for the McCrimmon Road interchange.  Note that a distance to the interchange is not indicated on this freeway sign.  This omission is fairly common along guide signs in the Ottawa area -- I have no idea why the 1km (or whatever the distance may in fact be) would be omitted from an advanced sign.

Easterly view form the Highway 34 overpass.  As the distance sign visible in the photo indicates, it is still almost 100km from Highway 34 into Montreal.  The drive down Highway 417 between Ottawa and Montreal looks much shorter on paper than it is in real life.

Opposing view from the Dalkeith Road overpass.  Notice the irregular spacing of the expansion joints in the concrete pavement.  The MTO specifies random joint spacing in the in the slab.  Slabs vary in length's of 3.7, 4.5, 4.0, 4.3 meters; Random joint spacings have been successfully used in plain undoweled pavements to minimize resonant vehicle responses (information from FHWA).

Two views looking easterly from the Prescott and Russell Road 14 overpass towards the Québec border.  The upper photo shows an overall shot of the eastern terminus of Highway 417 as it enters Québec to become Autoroute 40.  The lower photo shows in detail the transition between Ontario highway design standards and those of Québec.  Notice the different colour and spacing of the line striping for example.  An astute observer will also notice that Autoroute 40 has narrower lanes than Highway 417.  Since Autoroute 40 was construction, MTQ (the Quebec Ministry of Transportation) has widened its freeway lane standard, however Autoroute 40 has yet to be retrofitted.
