Left - The entrance ramp from Northbound Hwy 138 to Westbound Hwy 417 actually begins on the structure itself. The ramp starts to deflect away from Hwy 138 even before it reaches the end of the structure. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 138 at the north end of the overpass at Hwy 417. The loop ramp to Westbound Hwy 417 can be seen at right. Hwy 138 ends only a few metres north of the Hwy 417 Interchange, where the vehicle is parked on the shoulder in the background. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing east along Hwy 417 from the Hwy 138 Overpass. The median on Hwy 417 east of Ottawa is one of the widest freeway medians ever built on a Province of Ontario freeway. On some sections of Hwy 417, the median is wide enough for small woodlots to exist between the two carriageways. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing south from Hwy 417 along Hwy 138. Apparently, the highway's designer did not have aesthetics in mind when they planned this interchange. The pair of vertical curves employed at the south end of the Hwy 138 structure are far too short, which causes the roadway to suddenly disappear from view beyond the first crest. The poor vertical geometry also affects the appearance of the highway's shoulders, which seem to have a giant notch missing from them near the freeway sign. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - While the aesthetics of the roadway are unfortunate, the short vertical curves on Hwy 138 also partially hide the south Hwy 417 ramp terminals from a driver's view. Fortunately, this is a relatively low-volume interchange, but drivers exiting from eastbound Hwy 417 to turn north on Hwy 138 should be cautious at this rather inconspicuous intersection.

Left - The ramp from eastbound Hwy 417 to southbound Hwy 138 is channelized, in order to better serve the predominant traffic movement between Ottawa and Cornwall. The City of Cornwall lies 36 km to the south of Hwy 417 at the south end of Hwy 138. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
