Left - The centre median of Old Hwy 7 & Hwy 15 approaching the Bell's Corners Subway is comprised of a wide concrete rumble strip known as a "singing median". Many four-lane highways built in Ontario during the 1960s and 1970s had singing medians. However, this style of centreline treatment is no longer popular with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation. The singing median is slowly disappearing from the Ontario landscape as older highways are reconstructed. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Close-up of the singing median on Old Hwy 7 & Hwy 15 at Bell's Corners. The concrete centre strip has a series of intermittent alternating recessed grooves and raised humps, which provides drivers with an audible warning that their vehicle's tires have encroached over the centreline of the highway. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Conversely, the view of Old Hwy 7 & Hwy 15 facing west from the Bell's Corners Subway still resembles a rural four-lane King's Highway. See an Enlarged Photo here.
