Left - Pine Street Interchange on Hwy 58 in Thorold, facing east towards the Thorold Tunnel in 1970. The Thorold Tunnel and its approaches opened to traffic on September 18, 1968. Originally, the highway median was just a curbed asphalt island. During a reconstruction project in 2000, a new median barrier was installed along Hwy 58 and the 1960s-era illumination system seen here was replaced. Photo taken in May, 1970.
