One of the ends assemblies for the southern terminus of Highway 16 at the Highway 2 junction in Johnstown.  It is very rare for a Highway in Southern Ontario to have dual ends signage at one terminus.  This is also the only junction assembly located in a median that I have ever seen in the province.

A centralized view of the SB Highway 16 lanes approaching the Highway 2 intersection.  The Highway 2 intersection is slightly hidden from view in this picture.  The rightmost SB Highway 16 lane actually has a small ramp to WB Highway 2 (which leads to Johnstown).

The MGS for NY Highway 37 (erroneously showed in a US highway shield) via the Prescott-Ogdensburg bridge.  The suspension bridge can also be seen in the distance.

Highway 16 looking north from the Prescott-Ogdensburg bridge access.  This section of Highway 16 seems to be fairly under-traveled south of Highway 401.  The MTO very seldom overbuilds highways (usually Ontario highways are at the opposite end of the spectrum), but in this case it makes for a very unique drive.  The Highway 401 interchange is just out of view in this picture.

A very unique shield assembly located at the end of the Highway 16 off ramp from the EB 401.  Its not typical MTO practice to mix King's Highway shields and squares.  However to the MTO's credit, the assembly is clear and easy to read.  Again, US 37 is erroneously indicated instead of NY 37.  One wonders if the MTO is choosing to show US 37 shields instead of New York shields to ensure travelers looking for a Highway 37 know it involves crossing an international boundary.

Highway 16 looking north from the Highway 401 interchange.  In the distance you can see modern Highway 16 curving towards the left, where it heads to the 416.  Before the early 1970's Highway 16 would have continued straight ahead via what is now Leeds & Grenville Road 44.
