Historical Highway 407 (ETR) Photographs


HWY 427 #48             HWY 427 #57

Left - Nearly completed southbound lanes of Hwy 427 near the Claireville CN Railway Overhead in Toronto, facing north towards the Hwy 407 ETR Interchange. Apart from the occasional construction vehicle, the southbound lanes were not open to traffic. Top-course asphalt was still being laid on the southbound lanes between Hwy 7 and the new Hwy 407 Interchange at the time this photo was taken. Due to construction staging, the northbound lanes of Hwy 427 opened to traffic earlier than the southbound lanes. See an Enlarged Photo here. Photo taken on August 27, 1991.

Right - Unopened southbound lanes of Hwy 427 at the Steeles Avenue Underpass in Toronto in 1991, facing north towards the Hwy 407 Interchange. The completed Hwy 407 West to Hwy 427 South Flyover can be seen in the background. Noticeably absent is the opposing Hwy 427 North to Hwy 407 West Flyover, which had not yet been built at the time this photo was taken. The flyover from Hwy 427 North to Hwy 407 West wasn't built until 1994. The Hwy 407 & Hwy 427 Interchange sat completed but unopened for several years. The interchange was finally put into service when Hwy 407 ETR was opened to traffic in June, 1997. See an Enlarged Photo here. Photo taken on August 27, 1991.
