Left - Sign marking the new Hwy 401 Eastbound "ONroute" Service Centre at Tilbury. The new green ONroute logo will be utilized on highway signs to mark Ontario's new generation of Service Centres along Hwy 400 and Hwy 401. The company operating the ONroute Service Centres, HKSC Developments, is intending to use the ONroute name in an effort to re-brand their new Service Centres and differentiate them from the old, outdated service centres built in the early 1960s.

Both of the new Tilbury ONroute Service Centres were opened to the public on July 1, 2010, although some of the facilities remained under construction until September, 2010.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 401 from the Hwy 2 Overpass east of Tilbury. The ramps at this interchange are in a "Parclo B-2" configuration. A Parclo B-2 is a four-ramp freeway interchange, with ramps in two diagonally-opposing quadrants. This interchange type is characterized by traffic exiting from the freeway on a loop ramp on the far side of the grade separation.

The ramps in the opposing southeast quadrant of this interchange are also in this unusual configuration.
