Right - The Hwy 2 and Hwy 401 Cloverleaf is particularly interesting, as it is a junction of two divided highways. Despite the large number of full cloverleaf interchanges built on Ontario's early freeways, there were few instances where two divided highways actually met at such an interchange.

Left - The Hwy 401 Overpass at Hwy 2 is one of the most impressive structures on the highway west of Toronto. For several years, Hwy 401 ended at this interchange. The London-Woodstock section of Hwy 401 was completed in 1957, but the Woodstock-Kitchener section was not completed until 1961.

Left - View of the eastern half of the Hwy 2 Cloverleaf at Hwy 401. While the construction of cloverleaf interchanges is strongly discouraged today, the example found at Hwy 2 and Hwy 401 worked remarkably well due to the low traffic volumes on Hwy 2. Nevertheless, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) reconstructed this interchange in 2006-2007. This reconstruction project removed yet another example of this quickly-disappearing interchange design from the province's landscape.

Right - Aerial view of the Hwy 401 and Hwy 2 Cloverleaf, facing east towards Eastwood. This cloverleaf interchange was particularly interesting because it was located at the junction of two divided highways.
