The Lincoln Alexander Parkway was built along this section of Mohawk Road in the 1990s. The old route of Mohawk Road, seen climbing the hill in the background, wasn't needed for the new freeway alignment and was closed off before it reached Hwy 403. Once it was completed, the Lincoln Alexander Parkway provided a new high-speed freeway connection across Hamilton Mountain. The present day Meadowlands Shopping Centre is located where the fields are seen on the right-hand side of this photo. Photo taken on May 30, 1983. See an Enlarged Photo here.
