Left - Eastbound Hwy 403 Overpass over the Niagara-bound Queen Elizabeth Way at the Freeman Interchange in Burlington. This interesting three-span concrete rigid frame structure was one of three bridges built in 1957 for the new directional interchange between Hwy 403 and the Queen Elizabeth Way. The original 1957 interchange at Freeman remained in service up until the early 1990s, when it was completely rebuilt. Photo taken on December 14, 1990.

Right - Facing east along Eastbound Hwy 403 at the directional interchange with the Queen Elizabeth Way in Burlington in 1990. The overpass in the foreground crosses over the Niagara-bound lanes of the Queen Elizabeth Way, while the overpass in the background crosses over the Toronto-bound Queen Elizabeth Way exit ramp to Westbound Hwy 403. Both structures were replaced when the Freeman Interchange was rebuilt in the early 1990s. Photo taken on December 14, 1990.

Above - Eastbound Hwy 403 ramp to the Toronto-bound Queen Elizabeth Way at the Freeman Interchange in Burlington in 1990, before reconstruction. The red car traveling on the roadway at right is actually on the Toronto-bound lanes of Queen Elizabeth Way. When the old 1957 Freeman Interchange was replaced in the 1990s, both the Toronto-bound and Niagara-bound lanes of the Queen Elizabeth Way were substantially realigned through this area. Photo taken on December 14, 1990.

Left - Construction of the new Eastbound Hwy 403 Overpass over the Niagara-bound Queen Elizabeth Way at the Freeman Interchange in Burlington in 1994. After Niagara-bound traffic was redirected onto the new Queen Elizabeth Way alignment in 1995, the ramp passing underneath Hwy 403 temporarily fell into disuse. The ramp was reopened to traffic in 2001, when Hwy 407 ETR was connected to the Queen Elizabeth Way. Photo taken on October 27, 1994.

Right - Replacement of the 1957 Freeman Interchange in Burlington in 1994. This ramp structure carried traffic from the Toronto-bound Queen Elizabeth Way to Westbound Hwy 403 over the Niagara-bound lanes of the Queen Elizabeth Way. In 1993, a new high high-level bridge was constructed to carry this ramp, which is visible in the background. Also note the construction of the new ramp connections to the future Hwy 407 ETR at left. See an Enlarged Photo here. Photo taken on October 27, 1994.
