Are you talking about the QEW? I mean, development is pretty tight along it, but there are options. Most notably the Expropriations Act.

Judging from Google Streeview, there some houses who was removed along North Service Road near Dixie Rd althought there was a new construction done.

I've always thought that these houses along Premium Way were kind of neat.  If you look at the streetview images, although these homes now front onto Premium Way, it's pretty obvious that these are the rear of the homes.  These homes are old enough that they originally fronted onto the QEW itself, and then the service road was constructed behind them:
