Left - Facing west along Hwy 401 towards Newcastle from the Hwy 28 Overpass in Port Hope in 2006, before the six-laning of Hwy 401 was completed east of Port Hope. The outermost eastbound lane drops immediately east of the Hwy 28 Overpass, while the outermost westbound lane commences from the Hwy 28 on-ramp and becomes an "away" lane. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - View of Hwy 401 at the Hwy 28 Overpass in Port Hope in 2008, facing west towards Newcastle. Note that there are now six through lanes on the highway, and the westbound on-ramp coming from Hwy 28 now has a dedicated speed-change lane. When the Hwy 401 & Hwy 28 Interchange first opened to traffic in 1960, the exit ramps from Hwy 401 had direct tapers with no speed change lanes. The exit ramps were elongated through the construction of speed change lanes as part of an interchange retrofit project carried out in 1971. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 401 from the Hamilton Road Overpass. The highway was widened from four to six lanes between Port Hope and Cobourg in 2006-2007. The existing lanes on Hwy 401 had to be realigned in preparation for the construction. Note that at the time this photo was taken, the eastbound lane realignment was almost complete, but the westbound lane realignment was still being set up. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
