Right - The design of the Hwy 32 Overpass is among the most unusual of all of the structures located along Hwy 401. The four wing walls of the bridge are stylishly streamlined into the bridge's handrails. Only one other bridge along Hwy 401 features this interesting design treatment. The other example is located at the Sydenham Road (Old Hwy 38) Interchange in Kingston. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Thousand Islands Parkway Interchange on Hwy 401 in Gananoque. The flyover at this partial directional interchange carries westbound traffic on the Thousand Islands Parkway across Eastbound Hwy 401. It mirrors a similar partial directional interchange at the other end of the Thousand Islands Parkway near Brockville. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Thousand Islands Parkway Flyover across Eastbound Hwy 401 in Gananoque, facing west. Structure completed in 1965. This was the very last structure built with the concrete bar-and-post handrail on a provincial highway. The concrete bar-and-post railing design had been used on many Department of Highways' built bridges since being introduced in 1944, but the design was retired and supplanted by other concrete and steel handrails of various designs by the mid-1960s. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 401 towards Kingston from the Hwy 2 Overpass east of Gananoque. In the background, the flyover carrying the Westbound Thousand Islands Parkway can be seen crossing over Eastbound Hwy 401. The parkway merges into Westbound Hwy 401 on the left-hand side of the highway. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Junction route marker assembly on the exit ramp from Westbound Hwy 401 to Hwy 2 at Gananoque. This ramp marks the eastern limits of the Ministry of Transportation's very brief ownership of Hwy 2 in this part of Eastern Ontario. About 1 km of Hwy 2 east of Gananoque remains under provincial jurisdiction. The remainder of Hwy 2 from this point easterly to Lancaster, near the Quebec Boundary was downloaded to municipalities in sections between 1991 and 1998. Note the bilingual "Heritage Highway" route marker - a vestige from the past when the province signed numerous long-distance tourist routes along Ontario's Highways. See an Enlarged Photo here.
