HWY 401 #1233

Above - Aerial view of the Hwy 25 Interchange on Hwy 401 in Milton in 1974. The Hwy 25 Interchange was originally constructed in 1958-1959 as a full eight-ramp cloverleaf. In 1988, the two far-side loop ramps were removed, creating a "Parclo A-4" interchange that is seen today. At the time this photo was taken, this was very much a rural interchange. Nearly all of the land around Hwy 401 in Milton has been developed over the past 20 years. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1974.

Left - Western side of the Hwy 25 Overpass on Hwy 401 in Milton, shortly after the freeway was widened to six lanes in 1982. During the reconstruction, the concrete curb and gutter installations within the cloverleaf ramps were removed and replaced with drainage swales. Photo taken in July, 1983.

Right - Facing north across the Hwy 25 Overpass on Hwy 401 in Milton in 1983. Note that the original cloverleaf ramp configuration at the Hwy 401 & Hwy 25 Interchange was retained, even though Hwy 401 had just been reconstructed and widened to six lanes the previous year. The full cloverleaf interchange at Hwy 401 & Hwy 25 was replaced with a standard "A-4 Parclo" interchange in the late 1980s. Photo taken in July, 1983.
