HWY 400 #238

Above - Close-up view of the "angled" turn-off sign marking the exit to Hwy 93 from Hwy 400 South. These signs were used extensively on Ontario freeways during the 1970s. The angled freeway signs were gradually phased out and replaced with rectangular signs beginning in the 1980s. In my opinion, these angled turn-off signs were an excellent idea. Their unique shape helped drivers to immediately differentiate turn-off signs from all other rectangular-shaped ground-mounted guide signs on the freeway, even at a considerable distance. These angled signs were particularly useful at "Parclo-B" interchanges such as the Hwy 93 Interchange, where the exit ramp is hidden on the far side of the grade separation and would therefore be less apparent to a driver. Photo taken on April 29, 1981.
