yes but you can't see the nearby bridge

I did the tour of the island this past summer, was wonderful, but they were repaving the bridge so they scraped off all the asphalt, and the expansion joints were thus like 4 inches proud of the surface... I felt so bad driving my nice car on that crap and every 20 seconds big bang

The Kanesatake First Nation opposed the highway running through their reserve, hence the lack of a connection across either the Ottawa/Outaouais or St. Lawrence Rivers into Montreal. The completed highway meets up with the Aut. 15 at Mirabel.

The same reserve prevents a connection between the 40 and 640 along the north shore.

theoretically it should go to Pembroke I figure but no chance. (edit) The plans for eastward extension were more developed, and the 4 lane section of Hwy 158 out that way was signed as A-50 for a while.

There was also supposed to be an extension of A-5 to 417 at some point but Ottawa is being a jerk

Why should Ottawa make anything easy for Quebec?

I've forgotten where the 406 is. Saint Catharines/Welland?

Highway 407 extension construction in september.

Notice how the bridge piers are built for a 10 lane cross section even though opening day it will be 6 lanes. The 407 has been designed to easily be widened as demand warrants.

It would help ease congestion on arterial roads in downtown Ottawa as well, so it's not like Quebec are the only ones who'd benefit from this.

Highway 401 in 1959 at Meadowvale Road. Today this same stretch of highway is 14 lanes wide and has an AADT of over 240,000.

It's amusing how parts of eastern 401 still look exactly like that (e.g. near Quebec border), but so close to TO

Ah the GTA, every freakin day

that part of the 403 between the QEW and where it turns after the 407 always tempts, it starts moving and as soon as you get optimistic, you have to stop again...
