Take a drive on Highway 401 in Toronto: the world's busiest freeway! (Probably... it holds the title of North America's busiest but there's no official stat for the world's busiest.)

Stoney Plain Rd and Hendey will have 12 - 14 structures and be done by Oct 2011

Yellowhead Highway and Hendey will have 10 structures and be done 2011.
The one that will be huge will be the Henday East Yellowhead interchange could have up to 20 structures when all is done.

I've sat in traffic in Los Angeles many a time and I always find it hard to believe that this stretch of highway (although nightmarish by many standards) is worse or busier. But then again, I rarely use the 401. So that might be it.

This is 12:30 on a Thursday afternoon.

Try to drive on it between 3 and 8pm, or between 6 and 9 am and you'll see why.

I don't have any pictures of highways but I did find some nice ones on the internet.
Highway 17 approaching Sudbury.

Highway 17 about 30km east of Sault Ste. Marie.

The Trans Canada through this park is an astounding drive! Somewhere in that area is also the half-way point of the Trans Canada! It's just some little unassuming rest stop that, when I was there, had no plaque because it was getting fixed!

^indeed, a very scenic area. unfortunately my last trip through saw my vehicle break down completely, about 20kms from Terrace Bay. Was marooned in Terrace Bay, then Schreiber, for 3 nights, as they tried to fix my rental u-haul. Finally hitch-hiked back to Marathon to get another rental. Good times, good times.....

Here's one that I have of the Trans-Canada. My best guess would be late 1940s and perhaps the location would be northwestern Ontario or the Whiteshell. It reminds me a lot of those numerous twisty abandoned remnants of the old TCH route that used to be visible alongside Highway 17 between West Hawk Lake and Kenora.



That's Highway 17 through the Bar River Flats east of Sault Ste. Marie.



That's Highway 548 on St. Joseph Island where my family came from.



That's the Highway 548 bridge going from Highway 17 on the mainland to St. Joseph Island (right), with its breathtaking view of the St. Joseph Channel. I'm old enough to remember when it was just a ferry.

Yup, you wouldn't see much of the highway if he did take it at rush hour.
