Highway 401 (named the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway and Highway of Heroes) is a highway that extends across Southern Ontario, Canada. It is the longest 400-Series Highway in Ontario, and one of the widest and busiest highways in the world.[3][4] Together with Autoroute 20, it is the road transportation backbone of the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor, along which over half of Canada's population resides. Colloquially, the road is known simply as "The 401", spoken as "four-oh-one". Since 24 August 2007 the stretch of highway between Toronto (from Highway 404 (Ontario)/Don Valley Parkway) and Trenton has been named the Highway of Heroes in honour of the Canadian Forces personnel who have been killed during the War in Afghanistan.

History

A Highway 401 marker shield displaying the M-C Freeway designation. Few of these shields still exist, as they are no longer posted by the province.

Construction began on two portions of Highway 401 before the beginning of World War II: the new Kingston Road from Highland Creek (east of Toronto) to Oshawa, (modern day Former Highway 2A) bypassing the Kingston Road (Highway 2), and the scenic highway from Gananoque to Brockville, also bypassing a portion of Highway 2. The former was built because of heavy traffic between Toronto and Oshawa, and the latter to connect with the Thousand Islands Bridge (opened 1937). Until this time, the Thousand Islands Bridge terminated at Highway 2. [5] In late 1941 or early 1942, the scenic highway was opened to local traffic as a gravel road,[6] and numbered Highway 2S, meaning "Highway 2 Scenic" (as opposed to the popular, but incorrect, idea of "Highway 2 South", as the road does lie fully south of Highway 2). Paving of the south side, the future eastbound lanes, was completed several years later.[2] Combatants Allied powers: China France Great Britain Soviet Union United States and others Axis powers: Germany Italy Japan and others Commanders Chiang Kai-shek Charles de Gaulle Winston Churchill Joseph Stalin Franklin Roosevelt Adolf Hitler Benito Mussolini Hideki Tōjō Casualties Military dead: 17,000,000 Civilian dead: 33,000...

Construction of the first segment of the highway (originally designated Highway 2A) from Highland Creek (Scarborough) to Oshawa was initiated in 1938. The highway was designed to bypass a congested section of nearby Highway 2. Much of the grading and a number of structures were completed before the onset of the Second World War, at which time most of the construction work was shut down. This section was finally completed and opened to traffic in 1947. Until this road was extended east, it actually terminated at the Highway 35/Highway 2 interchange. Upon being extended east, the short dual carriageway connecting Highways 2 and 2A was re-designated Highway 35 (which is modern-day Highway 35/Highway 115).

During the war years, the provincial government undertook a number of surveys and studies to determine the most desirable route for the new limited-access highway.


The highway was redesignated "Highway 401" in 1952. The last segment, between Gananoque and Brockville, was completed in 1968 to bypass a section along the St. Lawrence River that included at-grade intersections and private entrances, now called the "Thousand Islands Parkway". The last at-grade intersection on the present alignment was at Joyceville Road, east of Kingston, which was converted to an interchange with the final 1968 construction.

In 1954, much of the current routing of Highway 401 north of Toronto was built, and the road temporarily ended at the Weston Road interchange (now Exit 357), while a bridge across the Humber River was constructed for the road to be extended eastwards. This bridge was never used, as just a few months after it was completed, Hurricane Hazel struck, and damaged the bridge so badly, that it had to be dynamited and completely rebuilt. This delayed Highway 401's completion in the Toronto area for nearly a year, as the bridge was reconstructed, and the freeway was extended eastward.[7] Template:Hide = Motto: Template:Unhide = Diversity Our Strength Image:Toronto, Ontario Location. ...

During the late 1950s, the road was extended from Windsor to London, as an at-grade Super 2, and was twinned in the late 1960s/early 1970s (the segment from Windsor to Tilbury was completed as a four-lane freeway), with the eastbound carriageway being built first. This is still evident today, as many bridges over creeks and streams in the area have different ages and appearances. The section from Windsor to Tilbury was among the original sections built, from 1952-1958, with the Tilbury Bypass (from Exit 56 to Exit 63) being constructed in 1961, with the Tilbury-London section opening in 1963. In 1957, the London-Woodstock section opened, as a four-lane divided freeway from Highway 4's interchange (just west of London), to Highway 2's interchange (just east of Woodstock). The road would later be extended to Kitchener in 1961, where it was linked to the Kitchener-Toronto-Oshawa section.

In 1964, Highway 401 was diverted from its former alignment in Windsor, Ontario along what is now Dougall Parkway, to its current terminus with Highway 3. The former alignment became Highway 401A (a secret designation, much like Highway 400A in Barrie). At this time, Highway 401 was also twinned from Windsor (interchange with Highway 98, now Provincial Road) to the eastern interchange (Exit 63) with Highway 2 in Tilbury, with two new lanes being constructed north of the existing lanes. The new carriageway became the westbound lanes, while the original two-lane carriageway became the east-bound lanes. This twinning from Windsor to Tilbury was completed in 1965. By 1968, all of Highway 401 was twinned to a minimum of four lanes. Nickname: Motto: The river and the land sustain us. ...

This name is found on maps and official documents, but seldom used in conversation or on modern road signs. A 1961 proposal to name the highway the "Leslie M.

September 11th, 2001 Attacks

When the September 11th Attacks occurred, the Ambassador Bridge, Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, and Detroit-Windsor Truck Ferry connecting Windsor and Detroit were shut down as a result for roughly a week. This caused a nightmarish traffic backup, with trucks lined up all along Huron Church Road in Windsor, and along Highway 401 out to Belle River Road (a staggering distance of 34 kilometers/21 miles). One story posted in the September 12, 2001 issue of the Windsor Star told of a kind man driving to the McDonalds on Lauzon Road and Tecumseh Road and ordered 200 meals for stranded truckers, and even got the McDonalds restaurant to cover half the bill.

Highway of Heroes

On August 24, 2007, the Ministry of Transportation (Ontario) announced that the stretch of Highway 401 from Trenton, Ontario to Don Valley Parkway/Highway 404 in Toronto will bear the name "Highway of Heroes" in honour of Canada's fallen soldiers, notably those who have died on duty in Afghanistan. This stretch of the freeway is often travelled by a convoy of vehicles carrying a fallen soldier's body with his or her family from CFB Trenton to the coroner's office in Toronto. Since 2002, when the first of Canada's fallen soldiers were returned from Afghanistan, crowds from all over the communities along this stretch of the 401 lined the overpasses to pay their respects as the convoy passes. The highway's designation as the "Macdonald-Cartier Freeway" will remain throughout the freeway's length. [8] [9] From the Don Valley Parkway to Trenton, large signs and several smaller reassurance markers with the new designation have been added to this stretch of the 401. Similar to the older and discontinued M-C Freeway shields installed in the 1960s, the King's Highway shields along with two shields with a poppy symbol (one with 401 designation and two with poppies with text Highway of Heroes and Autoroute des héros) appear after each on ramp along the route. At least three of these signs were reported stolen as of October 12th, 2007, one near Port Hope, and two others near Trenton. [10] Ministry of Transportation Headquarters in St. ...

Carnage Alley

The section of Highway 401 between Windsor and London has become known as "Carnage Alley", particularly since 1988, when a long string of particularly violent and deadly accidents occurred in this section. These accidents have occurred because of the road's initial 1950s design, namely narrow lanes, soft shoulders, and narrow grass median which has proven to be insufficient in preventing cross-directional collisions. This stretch of highway is also the busiest truck route in North America. Nickname: Motto: The river and the land sustain us. ... For other places with the same name, see London (disambiguation). ...

Highway 401 has been the site of Canada's deadliest automobile pile-up. An 87-vehicle pile-up occurred on the freeway just east of the Manning Road interchange and truck inspection center, during a thick fog on September 3 (Labour Day), 1999, which made headlines as far off as Toledo and Cleveland. In response, the freeway in this area is being given a massive upgrade. For more on this, read below. One of the more accident-prone parts of the freeway is at Exit 109 (Victoria Road, formerly Highway 21, now Chatham-Kent Roads 17/21). The freeway curves immediately east of the interchange and many people are not used to a curve near an interchange, particularly on the Windsor-London stretch of freeway, which is mainly straight.

Another result of this terrible accident is the implementation of province-wide "Emergency Detour Routes" (labelled "EDR" along freeways and exits). These EDRs are signed at exits, and along parallel county roads (which may or may not have been downloaded/former provincial highways) or major arterial roads in towns and cities to help motorists detour around an accident and find their way back to the freeway if a stretch of it is closed for any reason. However, this diverts high speed highway traffic on to low speed country roads, creating congestion due to the reduced capacity of the road. Shields for CR 581 in Tampa, Florida. ...


Speeding and Tailgating

Many of the accidents described earlier are attributed to excessive speeding and following too closely, causing many motorists in Ontario to consider having the MTO raise the speed limit on 400-series highways from 100 km/h (60 mph) to somewhere around 110 (65) or even 120 (75), bringing the network in line with other freeway networks in the United States and Europe, as well as other provinces, such as Alberta (which have speed limits of 110km/h on divided highways). Recently, to combat excessive speeding, the Ministry of Transportation and the Ontario Provincial Police have passed a law that states "excessive speeders" (those that drive 50 km/h over the limit, or 150 km/h or faster on 400-series freeways) will be fined and have their vehicles impounded. Transport trucks are also going to be limited by speed governors to 105 km/h, the same as in nearby Ohio, with mixed public sentiment on the matter.

Overview

Highway 401 was completed in 1968

Highway 401 begins at Highway 3, 13 kilometres (8 mi) from the Detroit River on the outskirts of Windsor (not at the Michigan border as some mistakenly assume) and ends at the Quebec border, 815 kilometers (506 mi) away. There are 18 rest areas or service centres (oases) located along the route, allowing motorists to access services without leaving the highway. A plaque was erected at the Mallorytown oasis, located on the last section of the freeway to be completed, stating that the 401 was the longest non-toll freeway under a single highway authority in North America. (Today the Texas section of Interstate 10 holds this record.)The 401 also holds the record for the world's busiest stretch of freeway.

Transportation corridor

The 401 at Don Mills Road.

The 401 is one of the world's busiest highways, with an estimated Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) of over 500,000 in 2006, between the Weston Road and Highway 400 interchanges in Toronto.[3] Due to its triple use as the main trade, commuting and recreational corridor in Ontario, 24-hour traffic volumes can exceed the 500,000 level on some days. The just-in-time inventory systems of the highly integrated auto industry in Michigan and Ontario have made the highway the busiest truck route in the world. Highway 401 also includes the continent's busiest multi-structure bridge at Hogg's Hollow in Toronto (four structures for the highway's four roadway beds). The first of these structures served as a bypass for Highway 11, and was built in 1929), with the three others being built more recently.

The 401 is a strategically important highway in Canada, as it connects the populous Southern Ontario region with Quebec and Michigan, while also connecting to most other major highways in the province. The 401 also acts as a 'short cut' between Detroit and Buffalo, New York (via Queen Elizabeth Way and Highway 403), and is used by many American motorists for this reason. The highway also serves as the principal connection to Montreal and points east, including New England, becoming Autoroute 20 at the Quebec border. The border crossing at Windsor and Detroit is the busiest trade crossing in the world, and although the 401 itself does not physically extend the last few kilometres into Detroit, it is the only route from Toronto to Windsor and on to Interstate 75. A future expansion of the Windsor-Detroit border crossing, which will include a freeway bypass of the existing Highway 3, may result in Highway 401 having a direct freeway link to the border. Some 40 percent of Canada-US trade travels the highway, which is one-third of Canada's foreign trade, and 4 percent of all US foreign trade. However, it is not part of the Ontario section of the Trans-Canada Highway. The name Southern has applied to a number of things over the years, and may refer to: Southern Company, a US electricity corporation. ...

The section that now runs through Toronto was a rural roadway that was entirely outside of the Toronto city limits when first opened, and was originally referred to as the Toronto Bypass. The new freeway attracted development all along its length. As the city's suburbs grew, it quickly became an urban commuter road, rather than a long-distance bypass route as was originally planned, leading to extensive traffic jams.

This was a problem/opportunity solved and built upon to some extent by implementing separate express and collector lanes, similar to the express/local set-up of the Dan Ryan Expressway in Chicago.

Though Highway 401's collectors are intended more for urban commuters, they enjoy equal access to intersecting freeways as the express lanes do, such as at the junctions with Highway 404 and somewhat with Highway 400, so their use is not restricted to local traffic. It also facilitates road maintenance, as the MTO can to close off either the express or collector lanes for night repairs or upgrades. By contrast, the collector-express system on Highway 427 separate out two streams of traffic; the express lanes connect the QEW/Gardiner with 401 and exclusively lead to freeway-to-freeway ramps, while the collector lanes link up the arterials Highway 27 and Browns Line and have interchanges with local traffic. Highway 427 as part of the 400-series network Highway 427 is a 400-Series Highway in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada, that runs from immediately south of the Queen Elizabeth Way/Gardiner Expressway interchange (its exact southern terminus is on the Browns Line at Coules Court...


By 1967 Highway 401 was widened from four lanes to 12 or more through Toronto from Islington Avenue to Warden Avenue.In the early 1970s the collector express lanes were extended to Neilson Road and eastward to Brock Road by 1997. Islington Avenue is a north-south route in Toronto. ... Warden Avenue is a north-south route in Scarborough, a community within Toronto. ...


The main collector-express setup with a minimum 12 lane cross-section currently stretches from Islington Avenue to Brock Road. Highway 409 which branches off from Highway 401 just west of Islington to Toronto Pearson International Airport has been unsuccessful in diverting traffic volumes; the 10 lane segment between Islington and Highway 427 is highly congested as a result. The existing 401-427 interchange is considered one of the worst bottlenecks since it only allows eight lanes of traffic (four in each direction) to pass through the interchange. It initially only allowed six lanes of through traffic until a widening project was completed in 2005; a major reconstruction of the junction is needed to meet current demands estimated at five-to-six lanes. It has been suggested that express lanes be merged into this article or section. ...

An alternative plan to the collector-express setup was to construct a bypass of Highway 401. This project was revived in 1987 and opened in 1997 as the toll road Highway 407 ETR to parallel Highway 401 in the Greater Toronto Area.

Signage

In order to make sure drivers are not confused by signs appearing in other lanes, colours have been assigned to both Collector and Express Lanes. Collector lanes (handling traffic merging from and to exits) are blue while Express Lane signs are green. Due to the urban nature of the road, all signs are mounted overhead on gantries. The green signs list up to three upcoming exits (for example: Leslie St, Bayview Ave, Yonge St, 4km) However the mileage indicated on the signs do not indicate the actual distance to the next exit, they only indicate the distance to the next transfer to the collectors. Once in the collector lanes, the blue signs direct and inform drivers of the distance until the exit ramp (for example: Leslie Street, 1km).

Highway 401 has a separate collector-express system in Mississauga between the junctions with Highways 403/410 and Highway 427. This was completed in 1986, concurrent with the expansion of the 401-403 interchange and the addition of two express flyover ramps and includes an eastbound collector-express transfer known as the "Tunnel." At 18 lanes wide this is the widest section of Highway 401, although at the present only nine lanes are designated for 401 through traffic (as express lanes) while the collector lanes serve as direct connections or ramp extensions from 403/410 to 427.

The existing 401/427 interchange remains a bottleneck to possible east expansion of this configuration that would link it up with the Islington-Brock collector-express system. Another choke point is at the 403/410 interchange since the 401 narrows down to eight lanes west of that junction. However, that junction has been designed with westward expansion of the collector-express system in mind; several prerequisite projects to accommodate widening from 403/410 to Mississauga Road were underway in the late 1990s, including a new interchange at Mavis Road and the reconstruction of the Mississauga Road and Derry Road overpasses.

Future expansion and upgrades

In the 1950s, Highway 401 had initially been constructed as a four lane divided highway but the narrow grass median has since proven insufficient in preventing cross-directional collisions. In 1999, the Windsor-London stretch of Highway 401 was infamously dubbed as "Carnage Alley" after several fatal accidents, including an 87 vehicle pileup on Labour Day during thick fog that claimed seven lives just east of the Manning Road interchange and truck inspection center. Much work has involved replacing the median strip with an "Ontario tall-wall" concrete barrier and often an extra lane per direction. Image File history File links Gnome_globe_current_event. ...

Oxford County upgrades

In the late Fall of 2005, the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario started a construction project to upgrade the current four-lane section of Highway 401 from four to six lanes from west of Oxford County Road 3 to west of Waterloo Regional Road 97 (where the next six-lane concrete-divided road begins) in the County of Oxford and Regional Municipality of Waterloo. Ministry of Transportation Headquarters in St. ... Oxford County, Ontario is a regional municipality and census division of the Canadian province of Ontario. ... The Regional Municipality of Waterloo is a regional municipality located in Ontario, Canada. ...


This is currently part of the last four-lane section between London and Toronto (stretching from Highway 403 Interchange in Woodstock, Ontario to Waterloo Road 97 in Kitchener, Ontario), but is being upgraded to 6 lanes plus an Ontario tall-wall barrier in the median. This is the first stage of upgrades of this final four-lane section.


In fall 2003, the widening of Highway 401 from four to six lanes from the Highway 8 interchange to Waterloo Regional Road 97 was completed. The Y-junctions with Highway 8 and Highway 403, opened in 1987 and 1990, respectively, were designed in mind to accommodate the widening of Highway 401 through Oxford and Waterloo.

Currently Planned
Lanes: 4 Lanes: 6
Median: Grassed Median: Ontario Tall-Wall
Rumble strips Rumble strips (new)
Interchanges every 5 km or so Interchanges every 5 km,
plus two new emergency ramps
One slightly sharp curve north of Oxford Road (Oxford CR 29, Exit 250) slightly re-aligned and straightened (completed and re-opened)

Aside from the addition of one lane per direction and a tall-wall barrier, two emergency ramp connectors that are intended to be used only during emergency highway closures and similar circumstances to permit traffic to move off the freeway (and emergency vehicles onto it) have been constructed. Built near Oxford Road 3 and Trussler Road, the ramps are an unprecedented addition to the Ontario highway system. onthighways.com source.


Other emergency accesses have been built in Essex County where the road was recently widened from 4 to 6 lanes, but these are gravel, and all are alongside overpasses, for use by ambulances, firetrucks, and police cars in emergencies only.


This is currently in stages, and will eventually close the 4-lane gap between the two 6-lane sections (London/Wellington Road-Woodstock/Highway 403 and Kitchener/Waterloo Road 97 (Cedar Creek Drive)-Toronto).

The first segment in Oxford County to see the upgrades is from Waterloo RR 97 to Oxford CR 3, with further upgrades planned from Oxford CR 3 to Highway 403. Several large upgrades will be carried out here: Oxford County, Ontario is a regional municipality and census division of the Canadian province of Ontario. ...

  • The interchange of Towerline Road and Middletown Line (Exit 236, just north of Highway 403) will be completely rebuilt and redesigned, as its current ramp configuration is extremely dangerous (short ramps with tight curves leading from an intersection just 30 feet/10 meters from the freeway, requiring a driver to "floor it" to get up to speed in time).
  • The aging and sagging overpass structure at Towerline Road will be replaced, making this a long-overdue upgrade.
  • The cloverleaf interchange with Former Highway 2 (Exit 238, which is the final remaining cloverleaf with two divided highways in the province) will be converted to a parclo interchange, as cloverleafs are no longer up to the Ministry of Transportation's safety standards (mostly from weaving). This will not be a disruptive construction contract, as the traffic volumes at the interchange are actually quite low (which is also why the cloverleaf interchange works smoothly) since former Highway 2 has been all but replaced by Highway 403 in the early 1990s. This will leave the Highway 4/401 interchange in London, Highway 62 in Belleville, and the former Highway 88/Highway 400 in Bradford as the last cloverleaf interchanges on a 400-series highway.

Mississauga upgrades

There are plans to widen the Mississauga stretch from six lanes to 12 lanes from the 403-410 interchange to the Credit River, and 10 lanes to Mississauga Road; this has recently been a major bottleneck due to the reduced capacity west of the junction. Actual construction on the expansion is slated to start in 2008 at the earliest, but for the last decade, numerous prerequisite projects have been undertaken.


The 403-410 interchange, which was under construction from the 1970s until 1995, is designed in mind for westward expansion of the collector-express system (note the Highway 401 collector overpass structures crossing Highway 410, each of which have an additional lane which is currently unused. There is also an available right-of-way for a loop ramp from Highway 403 northbound to Highway 401 west and a direction ramp in the opposite direction, which is designed to improve access from Cawthra Road; this project would make the 403-410 interchange a full four-way interchange.

The Kennedy Road overpass, opened in the early 1990s just west of the 403-410 junction, is wide enough to accommodate expansion of the 12 lane collector-express system. The Derry Road underpass have been widened to accommodate this in the late 1990s. An interchange has been added with Mavis Road in 1999, which has been extended north to Highway 401 and beyond, and the overpass abutments are designed to allow future lengthening so fourteen lanes can pass under. In 2002, the Mississauga Road four-lane overpass was replaced with an eight lane structure that can span fourteen lanes, while the interchange ramps were also realigned to support higher speeds.


The main obstacles to Highway 401 expansion are the aging 1960s Creditview Road, McLaughlin Road, and Hurontario Street (the bridge structure and ramps were realigned in the 1970s from its original cloverleaf configuration) overpasses which will be demolished and replaced as part of the reconstruction.

As this is the oldest stretch of freeway in use (having been constructed between 1938 and 1942), the road is seeing many upgrades, including the opening of new interchanges with longer ramps and better safety features, while older ones (such as the former Harwood Avenue interchange being replaced by the newly-built Salem Road interchange, 1 km to the east) have been closed off and removed.


The Park Road exit (Exit 416) is to be replaced by a new interchange at Stevenson Road in Oshawa. Construction began September 7, 2005. Currently, ramps from Stevenson Road to the Westbound 401 are open[16]. This project is set to be complete by 2010 at a total cost of $65,097,000.00[17].

Traffic cameras

To manage traffic, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) installed the Freeway Management System - COMPASS, the most advanced of its kind in the world when it was deployed in 1991 by Delcan Corporation. Using a combination of CCTV cameras, vehicle detection loops and LED changeable message signs, the MTO Traffic Operations Centre can obtain a real-time assessment of traffic conditions and alert highway travellers of collisions and construction. The system currently stretches from Highway 403, Mississauga to Harwood Avenue, Ajax, and is likely to be extended westward and eastward as Highway 401 is reconstructed and upgraded.
