Right - Completed Queensville Sideroad Interchange in 2014, facing southwest. The eastern portal of the concrete arch culvert in the 2012 photo at left can be seen in the foreground. Note the large amount of earth fill brought in to complete the highway to finished grade. Much of the fill material used here came from an area immediately north of Queensville Sideroad, where an earth cut was constructed to carry the new highway past a small hill. Balancing earth cut and fill quantities is a key consideration when selecting a new highway alignment. Having too much or too little fill material greatly increases the cost of highway construction. This is particularly true of the latter situation, where fill material may have to be trucked into the construction site from a distant location. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing east towards the Queensville Sideroad Overpass construction site on the Hwy 404 Extension in 2012. During construction, Queensville Sideroad was taken off of its original alignment to bypass the bridge construction site. Although this expensive diversion was ultimately closed and removed once the bridge was completed, it was the only way to build the new bridge without permanently skewing the alignment of Queensville Sideroad approaching the Hwy 404 Interchange. Staging construction while still maintaining traffic is a complex engineering challenge for most of the Ministry of Transportation's highway construction projects. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on August 30, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Construction of the Queensville Sideroad Overpass on the Hwy 404 Extension. As a result of the construction of the new interchange at Hwy 404, the grade of Queensville Sideroad had to be raised by several metres compared to its original alignment. The amount of fill required to bring the road up to its final grade was considerable. The extension of Hwy 404 from Newmarket to Keswick was a major undertaking. The grading alone took several construction seasons to complete. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Structure identification number and date stamp (2012) on the Queensville Sideroad Overpass on the Hwy 404 Extension. Special decorative concrete formwork was used during construction of the Queensville Sideroad Overpass. The resulting cast-in-place concrete has the appearance of being made out of stone blocks. This attractive and inexpensive treatment greatly improves the aesthetics of this bridge. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on August 10, 2014  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - The retaining wall and parapet wall of the Queensville Sideroad Overpass were constructed using the decorative concrete formwork. Understandably, the prefabricated structural girders of the bridge were not constructed using the decorative concrete formwork. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Southbound lanes of the Hwy 404 Extension, facing south from the Queensville Sideroad Overpass. The ramps at this interchange are in a "Parclo A-B" configuration, with two ramps situated in both the southeast and southwest interchange quadrants. This interchange type is rarely used in Ontario, unless there is some type of physical or topographical constraint. In this case, the steep-sided hills to the north of Queensville Sideroad would have made construction of a standard "Parclo A-4" interchange cost-prohibitive, due to the amount of earth grading that would have been required. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing south along the northbound lanes of the Hwy 404 Extension from the Queensville Sideroad Overpass, shortly before the highway was opened to traffic. Note the configuration of the four ramps at this unusual "Parclo A-B" interchange. All ramps at Queensville Sideroad are located on the south half of the interchange. There are no ramps on the northern side of the interchange. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Southbound Hwy 404 Exit at Queensville Sideroad. The new interchange at Queensville Sideroad was the only full interchange constructed as part of the Hwy 404 Extension. The Green Lane Interchange at the southern end of the Hwy 404 Extension was partially opened in 2002, when Hwy 404 was extended north from Davis Drive. At the northern terminus of the Hwy 404 Extension, the freeway comes to an end at a signalized intersection at Woodbine Avenue. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Grading work on the Hwy 404 Extension in 2012, facing south at Holborn Road. No grade separation was built at Holborn Road. It was closed to through traffic and truncated at a cul-de-sac on each side of the freeway. A future 400-Series Highway will begin at Hwy 404 immediately south of Holborn Road and run west to Hwy 400. The new highway is still very early in the planning stages, so it has not yet been assigned a route number. This proposed highway is currently referred to as the "Bradford Bypass". See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - The twin Boag Road Underpass structures on Hwy 404 are single-span concrete rigid frame bridges. These cast-in-place structures were built using the same decorative concrete formwork used on the nearby Queensville Sideroad Overpass. Thus, the resulting structures have the appearance of being made out of stone. They are arguably the most aesthetically pleasing bridge structures built by the Ministry of Transportation on an Ontario freeway in nearly two decades. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Northbound Boag Road Underpass structure on the Hwy 404 Extension. This attractive single-span concrete rigid frame bridge was cast-in-place using special decorative concrete formwork, so that the bridge has the appearance of being made out of stone. This bridge has some similarities in appearance to the Victoria Avenue Overpass, which is located on Hwy 420 in Niagara Falls. During construction of the Rainbow Bridge Approach in 1941, a new structure was built to carry Victoria Avenue over the new dual highway linking the Queen Elizabeth Way to the Rainbow Bridge. The Victoria Avenue Overpass, also a concrete rigid frame structure, was faced with decorative stone so that it formed an impressive "gateway" structure as motorists entered the Ontario Highway System from the United States. Hopefully, more bridges are built in Ontario in the future using the decorative concrete formwork used to build the Boag Road Underpass structures, as it certainly improves the aesthetics of a freeway. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Close-up of the special yellow warning sign approaching the northern terminus of the Hwy 404 Extension in Keswick. In recent years, the Ministry of Transportation has been getting more creative in terms of providing advance warning signs at the end of freeways. Terminating a freeway requires particularly careful engineering design and signing considerations, since drivers need advance warning to adjust from a controlled-access freeway driving environment to a lower-speed arterial highway driving environment. This sign, placed 800 metres before the traffic signals at Woodbine Avenue, provides drivers with enough warning that they can comfortably decelerate to the freeway's terminus without the need of an unnecessary regulatory speed limit reduction. A series of progressively-reduced advisory speed signs are posted to encourage drivers to slow down. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on August 10, 2014  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Shortly after the warning sign depicted at left, the lanes of Hwy 404 begin to shift out of alignment. All traffic is forced off of the freeway at Woodbine Avenue. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 404 #204 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 404 #205 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The northbound lanes of Hwy 404 continue to be spiralled out from the future through lanes of the freeway on the final approach to Woodbine Avenue. This subtle geometric treatment provides drivers with advance warning that the freeway is about to end. The temporary concrete barrier (TCB) at left blocks off the future through lanes of Hwy 404, which end just beyond the checkerboard sign in the background. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on August 10, 2014  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Although no grade separation or interchange has been constructed yet at Woodbine Avenue, the freeway terminates on what will eventually be the northbound off-ramp to Woodbine Avenue. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Exit sign for Woodbine Avenue on the northbound Hwy 404 Extension near Keswick. It is rather strange to see a rural freeway exit sign without a destination. Picking an appropriate destination to sign within geographically large and predominantly rural "towns" such as Whitchurch-Stouffville can be challenging, since there are often no qualified destinations or defined town centres that would be easily recognizable to motorists. See an Enlarged Photo here.
