When Hwy 400 was widened to six lanes between Toronto and Barrie in 1971-1972, the width of the weaving lane at all of the cloverleaf interchanges on Hwy 400 had to be reduced in order to fit the lane through the overpass alongside the new six-lane freeway. This proved to be a very economical interim solution, since it spared the exorbitant cost of having to rebuild all of the overpasses on Hwy 400 or reconfigure the cloverleaf interchanges. Many of the old cloverleaf interchanges were later reconfigured to diamond interchanges to improve traffic operations. Until recently, the Hwy 88 Cloverleaf was the only surviving interchange of this design left on Hwy 400. However, it too was converted to a diamond interchange during an interchange reconfiguration project in 2010-2011.
