View beneath the new twin structures that carry the twinned Hwy 69 overtop of the French River:

Very cool structures, it reminds me of the PQ-132 bridge known as Dominion Bridge spanning the Chaudière River just south of the old Québec bridge constructed in 2011-12 who replaced a older span built in the 1950s.

^ That's a cool looking bridge.  I'd not seen that bridge in Quebec before.

Two more recent views of the 401 from Trafalgar.  They have started painting the lines:

What type of lane is the inner lane of the express lanes? A tolled lane? An HOV lane?

The lighting is massive by the way, how tall are those light posts? 50 meters or so?

The inside lane is a standard HOV lane.  The province had contemplated tolling some of its HOV lanes, but when the stripe of the government switched a few years ago, those plans were shelved.

I'm not sure how tall the high mast poles are, but they are pretty standard for Ontario.

That basic design can be 25, 30, 35, 40, or 45 metres in height. I'd imagine for the wide core-collector set up it would be at least the 35 metre option.
