Above - The worst King's Highway sign...ever!! This rusty relic was once a Hwy 101 sign just east of Hwy 655 in Timmins. It has since been replaced with a new sign. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - The Frederickhouse River Bridge was replaced in 2004, after 65 years of service. There has been a precipitous decline in the number of steel through truss bridges on Ontario's highways in recent years. There are now less than 20 steel through truss bridges in the entire King's Highway system. Unfortunately, the demolition of the Frederickhouse River Bridge marks a continuation of this alarming trend. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Green directional sign on Hwy 101 for Former King's Highway 67. Many northern municipalities that received downloaded highways from the Ontario Government in 1997-1998 simply renamed the former highways as "Municipal Road", because they did not have a lower-tier road numbering system in place. In the instance of Former Hwy 67 between Timmins and Iroquois Falls, it would have been a better idea to name the former highway as "Highway 67", since most Timmins-area residents still call this road by its former highway number.
