Left - Curved concrete handrail on the Hwy 2 Overpass on Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 near Newcastle. This type of curved treatment was commonly used on Ontario's early freeway structures built in the 1940s and 1950s. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on October 28, 1981.

Right - Construction of the Wilmot Creek Culvert extension on Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 near Newcastle, Contract #1982-03. The original concrete barrel arch culvert that was completed back in 1955 was extended during expansion of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 from two to four lanes. Note the sediment control blanket in use - an early example of this feature. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1982.

HWY 35 #329             HWY 35 #330

Left - Facing west across the Hwy 2 Overpass at the Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 Interchange near Newcastle in 1983, following reconstruction and widening. As a result of the expansion of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 from two to four lanes in 1982, the ramps at the Hwy 2 Interchange were changed from a "Parclo A-2" configuration to a diamond configuration. The inner loop ramps and speed change lanes across the Hwy 2 structure were removed and replaced with new left turn lanes. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on June 17, 1983.

HWY 35 #333

Above - View of the reconfigured Hwy 2 Interchange on Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 near Newcastle in 1984. The original interchange built here in 1955 was reconfigured during reconstruction and widening of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 in the early 1980s. Up until 1982, westbound traffic on Hwy 2 heading southbound to Hwy 401 entered into a loop ramp just beyond the structure. Following reconstruction, westbound traffic on Hwy 2 wishing to go south towards Hwy 401 had to turn left. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on July 31, 1984.

HWY 35 #334             HWY 35 #301

Left - Hwy 2 Overpass on Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 near Newcastle in 1984, facing north. At the time this photo was taken, Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 narrowed from four lanes to two lanes just beyond this interchange. The 60 km/h speed limit sign at right was just temporary, to accommodate staged traffic conditions during construction of an adjacent bridge. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on July 31, 1984.

HWY 35 #328             HWY 35 #338

Left - Facing north along Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 from the Hwy 2 Interchange near Newcastle, showing the completed four-lane widening lying north of the interchange. The different shade of asphalt seen on the highway just beyond the Wilmot Creek Culvert makes the southerly limits of new construction under Contract #1983-67 rather obvious. After more than two years of construction, the widening of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 to a four-lane divided highway was completed between Wilmot Creek and the south entrance to Orono in the Summer of 1985. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in September 1985.

Right - Facing north across the new Hwy 35 Overpass at the Hwy 115 Interchange at Enterprise Hill, shortly after it opened to traffic in the Fall of 1987. A new "trumpet" interchange was constructed here in 1986-1987 to replace the former at-grade intersection at Hwy 35 and Hwy 115, which can be seen in this Historical 1972 Photo. About 1 km of Hwy 35 had to be relocated onto a new alignment as part of this reconstruction project. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on June 28, 1988.

HWY 401 #1624             HWY 401 #1625

Left - View of Hwy 401 at the Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 Interchange, facing east towards Newcastle. This section of Hwy 401 was widened from four to six lanes during a reconstruction project which began in 1997. Note the "Speed Enforced by Photo Radar" sign located on the far side of Hwy 401. This unpopular speed enforcement campaign was rather short-lived during the mid-1990s. The photo radar program was discontinued on provincial highways in 1995. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on November 15, 1994.

Right - Deck view of the Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 Underpass on Hwy 401. Like many underpass structures of this vintage, the centre median across the structure was completely paved. Note the small timber curb placed along the highway's centreline between the eastbound and westbound lanes of the freeway. These timber curbs were placed to protect the bridge's centre construction joint as well as to discourage motorists from making illegal U-turns on the freeway. As part of the reconstruction and widening of Hwy 401 in the Newcastle area in the late 1990s, a concrete median barrier was built across the structure. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on November 15, 1994.

HWY 401 #1626             HWY 401 #1627

Left - Deteriorated 1950s-era concrete bar-and-post handrail on the Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 Underpass on Hwy 401. A temporary concrete barrier was placed alongside the old handrail until 1997, when this bridge underwent a full rehabilitation and widening to accommodate six traffic lanes along Hwy 401. The 1990s marked an inflection point for Ontario's Ministry of Transportation, when the general focus turned towards the rehabilitation of existing highway infrastructure with less emphasis on further expansion of the provincial highway network. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on November 15, 1994.

Right - Northern side of the Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 Underpass on Hwy 401. This single-span pre-stressed concrete girder structure was completed in 1958. It was one of a handful of pre-stressed concrete girder bridges built along the King's Highway system in 1957-1958, at a time when the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) was seeking alternatives to using cast-in-place concrete construction methods for new highway bridges. Port Hope District (DHO District #7) experimented with methyl alcohol additives in concrete grout mixes on some precast girder bridges in an effort to ensure proper concrete curing during winter work. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on November 15, 1994.
