Time-lapse driving on Highway 402 westbound in Sarnia, Ontario, towards the Blue Water Bridge. Video sped up 4x.
Highway 402 is a very important economic route as it connects London, Ontario with Sarnia and, more importantly, Canada with the United States, over one of the few short gaps in the Great Lakes basin.
Together with Interstate 69 and 94 in Port Huron, Michigan, Highway 402 forms a complete freeway bypass of the clogged border crossing in Detroit/Windsor. -However, the completion of Highway 401 in Windsor will eventually link up with Interstate 75 via a new bridge, creating another full freeway link.
Highway 402 in Sarnia is also known as the Blue Water Bridge Approach. The bridge itself has two spans. The first span was built in 1938 and it was twinned in 1997. The bridges cross the St. Clair River, which connects Lake Huron with Lake St. Clair.
Within Sarnia, Highway 402 is currently being widened to 6 lanes to accommodate increased boarder traffic heading west towards the United States. When complete, Highway 402 will have an abnormal 2 eastbound, 4 westbound lane cross-section.
Sorry that the footage is kind of shaky in places, I just couldn't get my camera tripod to sit still!
