City of Toronto View looking southerly towards the Highway 401 overpass from Sheppard Avenue.  A short collector-distributor (C-D) lane was constructed in the vicinity of Sheppard Avenue between 2002 and 2007.  Separating through and local movements in this fashion improves traffic flow.  Click here for this same view taken in April, 2004.

City of Toronto Overhead signage, this time for the southbound off-ramp to Sheppard Avenue.  The Sheppard Avenue interchange is located extremely close to the large Highway 401 interchange.  Modern highway designers in Ontario tend not to locate interchanges in such close proximity to each other on newer highways, as tight interchange spacing is often a major cause of traffic congestion.

Two views looking southerly towards the 16th Avenue interchange with Highway 404 and Buttonville Airport.  Buttonville is a small general aviation airport that is slated to close as soon as the end of 2013.  Once closed it will be redeveloped as a mixed use high density site.  Various improvements to both the local road network and Highway 404 are planned as part of this project.  The city of Markham website has an interesting PowerPoint presentation detailing some of the proposed improvements that can be viewed here.

This view looks northerly overtop of the Rouge River bridge.  Take notice just how narrow the highway is as it crosses overtop of the Rouge River bridge.  The Rouge River bridge is a pile driven bridge, a design that is difficult to widen.  Accordingly it was not widened when the 404 was six laned in 2001.  This bridge is considered "throw-a-way" infrastructure, and new spans will be constructed prior to future highway widening.

View looking northerly from the Nineteenth Avenue overpass.  Note the greenbelt signage in the right hand side of the photo.  Perhaps surprisingly I am a big supporter of Ontario's greenbelt legislation -- while I certainly am in favour of continued economic and social growth within the GTA, continued urban sprawl cannot be allowed to envelop all of the prime farm land that surrounds the GTA.  Click here for this same view taken in October 2006.

Highway 404 looking south from the St. John's Sideroad overpass near Aurora.  St. John's Sideroad is located roughly at kilometre marker 47.  In the upper (2005) photo, notice the large blue 'Oak Ridges Moraine' sign located to the right of the southbound lanes.  This sign was replaced by a sign for Ontario's Greenbelt subsequent to the passing of the Greenbelt Act in 2005.  This change is reflected in the 2012 photo.
