1.2. Full freeways complete controlled-access Other provincial freeways

The province also maintains freeways which are up to 400-series standards, yet are not numbered as part of the 400-series network. This is despite some of those freeways exceeding existing 400-series highways in size and traffic volume and despite some of them being connected to the 400-series network. Nonetheless, Ontario freeways do not receive a 400-series number unless they are designed to be complete controlled-access freeways for their whole length. The non 400-series routes listed below have significant open-access portions besides the freeway section, with the freeway segment typically being a small section not at the routes termini.

  • Highway 6 is a freeway in 3 segments
  • Highway 403 to Clappisons Corners at Highway 5. This freeway is a newly completed, 2.5 km stretch north of Hamilton. Plans are to eventually continue this freeway north to Highway 401 at Guelph.
  • College Avenue to Paisley Rd. in Guelph, as part of the Hanlon Parkway.
  • Maltby Road to Kortright Road in Guelph, also as part of the Hanlon Parkway. The rest of the Hanlon is an expressway with at-grade intersections. Plans are to eventually turn the entire length of the Hanlon into a freeway.
  • The Conestoga Parkway - Baden to St. Jacobs through Kitchener/Waterloo. It carries the designations Highway 7, Highway 8, and Highway 85. Highway 85s southern terminus is at the part where Highway 7 turns off of the freeway portion. Its northern terminus is at Waterloo Regional Road 15 King Street North, whence it continues as Arthur Street, or Regional Road 85.
  • Highway 7 is a freeway in 3 segments, and a fourth segment is in planning
  • Carleton Place to Highway 417 in Ottawa;
  • Concurrent with Highway 115 from the interchange with Highway 7A to Television Road in Peterborough, bypassing the city;
  • Plans are to upgrade Highway 7 from the Conestoga Parkway eastward to Hanlon Parkway into a freeway, along with the Hanlon.
  • Baden to Waterloo see Conestoga Parkway above;
  • Highway 400 at Barrie to Penetanguishene Rd.;
  • Hewitt St. at Gravenhurst to Kirk Line at Bracebridge;
  • Highway 11 is a freeway in several segments.
  • Line 15 North to Carlyon Line Orillia bypass;
  • Simcoe County Rd. 169 at Washago to Southwood Rd. at Severn Bridge;
  • Main St. in Huntsville to Highway 17 in North Bay. The length of Highway 11 from Barrie to North Bay is currently planned to be upgraded to a fully controlled access highway in the long term; no 400-series designation is planned.
  • Highway 8 - Highway 401 to the Conestoga Parkway in Kitchener. The freeway portion of Highway 8 in Kitchener is known as the "Freeport Diversion" or the "King Street Bypass" or, by many area residents, as "the Highway 8 Expressway". In 1987, the Freeport Diversion was extended to Highway 401; this extension carried the unsigned designation of Highway 7187 until 2011 when it was designated part of Highway 8. Before 1987, traffic continued on King Street East, an undivided 4-lane arterial road to an interchange with Highway 401. Highway 8 is also a freeway co-signed with Highway 7 on the Conestoga Parkway from King Street to Baden.
  • Highway 17 is a freeway in 2 segments
  • In Sudbury, from Municipal Road 55 in Whitefish to MR 55 in Lively.
  • The Whitefish to Lively section transitions to a two-lane freeway from Lively to MR 55 west of Coniston. This two-lane segment briefly transitions back to a divided freeway at the Highway 69 interchange, to ease future freeway conversion on the segment; the Ontario government has announced that the segment will be upgraded to full freeway in the early 2010s. These segments may be incorporated into a future expansion of Highway 417. Additionally, the expressway portion of Highway 17 near Sault Ste. Marie could also be upgraded into a full freeway in the future, but currently contains at-grade intersections.
  • Highway 35/Highway 115 is a freeway in 3 segments
  • Wilcox Rd. to Highway 7 in Peterborough.
  • Highway 401 at Newcastle to Concession Rd. 3;
