The Queen Elizabeth Way (commonly referred to as the QEW, Q, QE, or Queen-E) is a vital 400-Series freeway in Ontario, Canada. It links Buffalo, New York, USA and the Niagara Peninsula with Toronto and its western suburbs. The freeway starts at the Peace Bridge in Fort Erie, Ontario and continues 139 kilometres (86 mi) through Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and Mississauga before ending at the junction of Highway 427 and the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto. The QEW is one of Ontario's busier highways with over 200,000 average trips per day.

The Queen Elizabeth Way originally started as a divided-highway upgrade of the Middle Road between Highway 27 and Highway 10 in 1931. At the time, the Middle Road was one of the first examples of a divided highway anywhere in North America,[3] and it was the forerunner to the current superhighway. Various upgrades during the 1940s and 1950s brought the Queen Elizabeth Way up to modern freeway standards between Toronto and Hamilton, and later over its entire length. For specific systems, such as the Autobahns of Germany, see list of highway systems with full control of access and no cross traffic. ...

Name and signage

The Queen Elizabeth Way was not named for Queen Elizabeth I or II, but for the Queen Elizabeth (later known as the Queen Mother) who was Queen Consort of King George VI. In 1939 King George and Queen Elizabeth made a tour of Canada to celebrate his coronation and make themselves known to their Canadian subjects.

George VI (Albert Frederick Arthur George; 14 December 1895 – 6 February 1952) was King of the United Kingdom and the British Dominions from 11 December 1936 until his death. ...


The signs identifying the highway have always used blue lettering on a yellow background instead of the black-on-white of Ontario's usual King's Highway signs (as shown on the right). They originally showed the highway's full name only in small letters, with large script letters ER (for Elizabeth Regina, or Queen Elizabeth in Latin) where the highway number would go on other signs.[4] In 1955 the lettering was changed to QEW. Trailblazer shields, indicating routes "to QEW," switch the colours to yellow on blue. The Ministry of Transportation maintains the system of provincial highways in the Canadian province of Ontario. ... For other uses, see Latins and Latin (disambiguation). ... Year 1955 (MCMLV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays the 1955 Gregorian calendar). ...


Because the highway curves sharply around the end of Lake Ontario, its directions are not signed with compass points as usual on Canadian highways, but with destination cities. QEW Toronto is used consistently for the direction toward Toronto. In the other direction, the highway is signed QEW Hamilton from Toronto to Hamilton, QEW Niagara from Hamilton to Niagara Falls, and QEW Fort Erie from Niagara Falls to Fort Erie. Lake Ontario, bounded on the north by the Canadian province of Ontario and on the south by Ontarios Niagara Peninsula and by New York State, USA, is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. ...


The QEW is not publicly referred to by any route number, but the MTO has referred to it as Highway 451 in annual reports.[5] Ontario’s only other 400-series highway to have had a unique provincial highway shield with letters instead of a number is Highway 401, which is designated concurrently as the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway. "M-C" shields used to be a common sight along the highway, but the MTO has been phasing them out since the late 1990s. Highway 401 redirects here. ...


Hamilton-Niagara section

The Queen Elizabeth Way originally ran from Toronto to the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls. In the 1950s, a second branch was constructed, starting from a traffic circle near Niagara Falls and extending south on the present route to Fort Erie. The original route, now a spur, was still designated as part of the QEW until 1972, when it was reconstructed and redesignated as Highway 420.

In 1958, the original section of the QEW west of Guelph Line was relocated on a new alignment known as the Freeman Diversion which improved access to the proposed Burlington Skyway and allowed the Freeman Interchange (a "semi-directional T" interchange) to be constructed with the future Highway 403. The old bypassed segment was renamed Plains Road (which was never a freeway and is now a minor arterial road) and the new QEW branched off from it in a Y-junction partial interchange.

High-level bridges were constructed at Hamilton Harbour in 1958 (the Burlington Bay James N. Allan Skyway) and the Welland Canal in St. Catharines in 1963 (the Garden City Skyway) to allow free movement of traffic without the need to stop for drawbridges; tolls on these bridges were eventually removed in 1973.

To meet growing demand, the Burlington Skyway was twinned in 1985. Concurrently, the QEW from Burlington Street to Highway 403 (Burlington) was reconstructed with 8 lanes, a variable lighting system, state-of-the-art changeable message signs and traffic cameras, and modern parclo interchanges with Burlington Street, Northshore Boulevard, and Fairview Street. Burlington Street is a road stretching along the south shore of Hamilton Harbour in Lake Ontario. ...

In the early to late 1990s, the Freeman Interchange was reconfigured to accommodate Highway 407, and an interchange was added at Brant Street. In 2000–2001, QEW was widened to six lanes from Brant Street to Guelph Line and access to Plains Road was removed. In 2004-2005, the Guelph Line interchange was reconstructed.

In 2000, the British-style roundabout junction with Erin Mills Parkway, which dated back to the early 1960s, was completely reconstructed as a standard parclo A4 interchange. A roundabout is a type of road junction at which traffic enters a one-way stream around a central island. ...


As part of the Red Hill Valley Parkway newly opend in 2007, the Burlington Street and Centennial Parkway interchanges are currently being reconstructed, including the construction of collector lanes on the south (Niagara-bound) side of the highway. The Red Hill Valley Parkway (popularly called the Red Hill Creek Expressway) is a municipal expressway running through Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, connecting the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway to the Queen Elizabeth Way near Hamilton Harbour. ... A collector/distributor road, often abbreviated as C/D road, is a one-way road next to a freeway that is used for some or all of the ramps that would otherwise merge into or split from the main lanes of the freeway. ...


The QEW is also well known for its vintage highway architecture, which is slowly being replaced as the highway is upgraded through St. Catharines and Niagara Falls. An original 1936 rail overpass at Sandplant Hill in Niagara Falls was slowly removed in 2005 and 2006, and completely replaced in late 2006 (the process was gradual to maintain rail traffic). The 1937-vintage Martindale Road overpass in St. Catharines is due to be replaced in 2008.

The QEW was called the Middle Road from 1931 to 1939 as a highway connecting Hamilton with Toronto. The QEW formerly continued beyond Highway 427 to the old Toronto city limits at the Humber River; this section was downloaded from provincial to municipal ownership in 1997, and became part of the Gardiner Expressway. A monument was originally located at the highway's Toronto terminus, dedicated to the 1939 visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth, and consisted of a column with a crown at the top and a lion at the base. The monument was moved in the mid 1970s in order to accommodate widening of the original QEW, and is now located in the nearby Sir Casimir Gzowski Park along Lake Ontario, on the east side of the Humber River. The Queen Elizabeth Way Monument is a memorial located at the Toronto end of the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW). ... The Humber, as seen from a point near the northern border of Toronto. ...

The late-1960s widening project coincided with the construction of the complex interchange with Highway 427 (formerly Highway 27) and resulted in an 8 to 10 lane QEW stretching to the Humber River, with a short collector-express system serving Kipling Avenue and Islington Avenue. Ramp meters were also added to traffic entering the Toronto-bound lanes from Ford Drive to Cawthra Road in 1975. These meters are only activated during the morning rush hour. It has been suggested that express lanes be merged into this article or section. ...

Metered Ramp A ramp meter or metering light is a device, usually a basic traffic light or a two-phase (red and green, no yellow) light together with a signal controller, that regulates the flow of traffic entering freeways according to current traffic conditions. ...


The 427–Humber section was downloaded by the province to Toronto in 1997, and was renamed as part of the Gardiner Expressway, so that the QEW now ends at Highway 427. The section has changed little since then. Since the end of 2003, the conventional truss lighting poles from the late 1960s have been replaced west of Kipling Avenue and east of Royal York Road, in favour of shaded high-mast lighting like that of the Don Valley Parkway. Bilingual English-French signs were also removed and replaced with English-only signs.

Today

Today, the QEW is a full four- to eight-lane freeway running through the heart of Ontario's tourist region. Construction is currently underway to widen the highway from four to six lanes through all of St. Catharines and Niagara Falls as well as a full eight to ten-lane widening though Halton Region.

Future

The Ministry's future plans are to add HOV or car pool lanes on the QEW/403 in the sections from Toronto to St. Catharines.

Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) History - The King's Highways of Ontario (1743 words)
Queen Elizabeth was delighted with the honour and agreed to attend a special dedication ceremony in St. Catharines on June 6, 1939.
The section of the QEW from Highway 427 to the Humber River was reconstructed as an 8 to 10-lane freeway in the 1960s and early 1970s, with a short collector-express lane system from Kipling Avenue easterly to Royal York Road.
The QEW is sometimes referred to internally by the Ministry of Transportation as either "Highway 1" or "Highway 451".
Queen Elizabeth Way - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1586 words)
The Queen Elizabeth Way was extended further south to Fort Erie after World War II, leaving the QEW's original route to the Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls as a spur which later became Highway 420 after reconstruction in 1972.
The QEW was called the Middle Road from 1936 to 1939 as a highway connecting Hamilton with Toronto.
The QEW formerly continued beyond Highway 427 to the old Toronto city limits at the Humber River; this section was downloaded from provincial to municipal ownership in 1997, and became part of the Gardiner Expressway.
