Right - Junction of Hwy 17 & Hwy 108, facing north towards Elliot Lake from the Serpent River Truck Scales. Only three King's Highways head north from Hwy 17 between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie - Hwy 144, Hwy 108 and Hwy 129. Of these three highways, Hwy 108 is the only one which does not connect to any other King's Highways at the northern terminus. Rather, Hwy 108's only outlet is via Secondary Highways (Hwy 639 and Hwy 546), which form a rather scenic but long loop back to Hwy 17 at Iron Bridge. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
