Ontario Highways

Hello all, I was just curious if the images from www.Onthighways.com could be removed from this list. I am the webmaster. Though I have no problem with images being used in this manner, unfortunatly having them posted at this location has caused me to overuse my bandwidth for the month. I do enjoy sharing pictures with everyone, but I would really appreciate it if links were used to the site instead of showing the images here so that the sites bandwidth can be kept more in check.

Thanks very much!
Scott Steeves

P.S. The 401 does rock

My old horrible commute on Hwy 401 to DVP. (Looking east from DVP)



The same area in 1956: (Looking West, the hill behind is where the DVP interchange was built)


Hwy. 401- Kennedy Road Interchange in 1957

Hoggs Hollow Bridge (near Yonge Street Exit)

Hwy. 401 at Islington



How jammed Toronto's highways can be:

All US Interstates are freeways. US Highways are for more localized routes like US395, US50 etc.

For me, the most amazing thing is the way they clear it of snow after a huge fall.

The more I know about Canada, the more I fall in love with that place.
I am big fan of Highways, and Canada is one of the best for that along with California and Texas

Its funny how people say it's there dreams to drive these huge highways, when i can drive the 401 everyday. The massive thing splits my town right down the middle, thats how we define North and south ajax. I guess since i've grown up with it I just take it for granted.

Funny, as a non-ajax resident, but living in the area. I have always described north ajax as the 'durhams big box', and south, as 'industrial ajax'

Maybe its just me
