Well Done Dr. The most enjoyable thing with these expressways is the views you get from them as you speed past highrise clusters

If anyone is interested I run a website devoted to Ontario highways (coincidentally where some of Dr. Joe's pics originated). The site features pictures of both ontario highways and freeways. The URL is at http://www.onthighways.com. If interested, please have a look!

Cheers!

That was great, thanks for the pics. There is one expressway your small map of Ont is missing. The freeway from Newcastle to Peterborough

I think the map is of only 400 series highways, of which the Newcastle/Peterborough highway (115 I think) is not.

There's also the Hwy.8/7/85 mess through Kitchener Waterloo, which is fairly significant. Thanks SonySnob

I think the point about the 35/115 is fair though because DrJoe posted pics of the Don Valley Parkway which is also not a 400-series highway (though its extension, the 404 is). The DVP is a worthy inclusion though because it is one of the most scenic highways I have even been on, though I would only recommend driving it on the weekend because of the murderous traffic during weekdays.

Another picture that is worth posting it is the view from the gardiner when travelling east past the SkyDome. The new development on either side has created a neat urban canyon along the highway.

this is true.... but on the map, I just noticed that it doesn't include the DVP, or even the Gardiner Exp.

As You can see in this photo, this freeway has not so good quality as it seems. In the left-bottom corner we can see some imperfections.

yeah, that map is the 400 series map from wikipedia.. missing Conestoga, 174, DVP, 35/115, LINC etc.

I found the expressway map



The expressway network in Southern Ontario, including the 400-Series Highways (blue), Provincial expressways not part of the 400-Series system (orange), and Municipal expressways (purple)

Too bad all the roads are damaged each year by salt crystals and snow

All highways slope downward to both sides which keeps them free of excess water reducing the risk of hydroplaning. The circles that are near the of the median are drainage holes that are present in every divided highway that doesn't have a drainage ditch in the centre.

Yeah, yeah...I know, for tree-hugging hippies like you who know nothing about a hard-days' work, the TTC is great and so is cycling in frigid weather, but for real hard-working individuals like me I rely on an automobile....and for the millions of others who work every day to support your welfare payments through their taxes, they rely on cars too!

NUFF SAID.

The Orange Crush right? I remember being stuck in that nightmare before.
