NEW Right - High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) Lane on Southbound Hwy 404. This recently-completed HOV lane allows carpool and public transit vehicles to bypass the congested section of Hwy 404 approaching the Hwy 401 & Don Valley Parkway Interchange. A special HOV Tunnel was constructed below the Don Valley Parkway ramps, in order to allow vehicles in the HOV lane direct access to Westbound Hwy 401. Vehicles wishing to continue south along the Don Valley Parkway or use Eastbound Hwy 401 must depart from the HOV lane into the general purpose lanes in order to exit from Hwy 404. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Northbound Hwy 404 at the Van Horne Avenue Overpass in Toronto, facing south. Most of Hwy 404 through Toronto was constructed below-grade in an earth cut, in an effort to attenuate highway noise and minimize the construction footprint of the overpasses. The slopes beside the highway give some clues as to how high the original ground line was above the highway's finished grade. A substantial amount of earth had to be excavated and removed in order to construct the highway. The freeway was constructed with curb-and-gutter along the outer lanes, since all roadway drainage had to be contained within the earth cut without the use of roadside drainage ditches. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Southbound Hwy 404 at the McNicoll Avenue Overpass in Toronto, facing north. When this section of Hwy 404 was first constructed in the 1970s, it was built along an existing road's right-of-way (Woodbine Avenue). The section of Woodbine Avenue between Sheppard Avenue and Steeles Avenue was reconstructed as a freeway, tying into the existing Hwy 401 & Don Valley Parkway Interchange just south of Sheppard Avenue. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Southbound Hwy 404 at the McNicoll Avenue Overpass in Toronto, facing south. The original cross-section of Hwy 404 was six lanes (three lanes per direction) when the highway first opened to traffic in 1977. A fourth lane was added in each direction in 1999, and the High-Occupancy Vehicle Lane was opened in 2005. See an Enlarged Photo here.
