HWY 10 #117             HWY 10 #118

NEW Left - Facing south along Hwy 7 & Hwy 10 (Hurontario Street), about 2 km north of Downtown Brampton in 1980.

NEW Right - View of Hwy 7 & Hwy 10 (Hurontario Street), facing south towards Brampton from Westervelt Corners in 1980.

HWY 10 #119             HWY 10 #120

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 7 & Hwy 10 (Hurontario Street) at Westervelt Corners in 1980. At the traffic signals, Hwy 7 turned left and headed west towards Georgetown and Guelph, while Hwy 10 continued straight ahead towards Caledon Village and Orangeville. Until 1982, Hwy 7 & Hwy 10 shared a concurrent route along Hurontario Street between Downtown Brampton and Westervelt Corners. The overlapped route of Hwy 7 & Hwy 10 was discontinued in 1982, when Hwy 7 began to be signed via Bovaird Drive instead. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on December 5, 1980.

NEW Right - Facing south along Hwy 10 towards the Hwy 7 West Junction at Westervelt Corners north of Brampton in 1980. In the mid-1950s, the County of Peel built a new truck bypass around Brampton, in an effort to keep heavy vehicles from entering the town centre. The "Brampton Bypass" was known as Peel County Road 16. It followed what is now Bovaird Drive from Hwy 7 & Hwy 10 at Westervelt Corners easterly to Kennedy Road, and then south along Kennedy Road to Hwy 7 East (Queen Street). In preparation for the construction of Hwy 410, the Ministry of Transportation & Communications (MTC) assumed jurisdiction over Heart Lake Road and Bovaird Drive as a provincially-owned truck bypass route in 1974. Even though Hwy 7 itself continued to pass through Downtown Brampton, through traffic was encouraged to use the truck bypass. Although it isn't clear in this photo, a green trailblazer sign in the junction assembly in the background directs traffic bound for Hwy 7 East to turn left and follow Bovaird Drive and Heart Lake Road around Brampton. Soon after this photo was taken, the route of Hwy 7 was relocated from Hurontario Street and Queen Street via Downtown Brampton over to Bovaird Drive and Heart Lake Road (Hwy 410). See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on December 5, 1980.

NEW Right - New residential development at Hwy 10 (Hurontario Street) and Sandalwood Parkway in 1980, north of Westervelt Corners.

Today, Sandalwood Parkway in a multi-lane arterial road, which extends for about 14 km across the northern part of Brampton. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on December 5, 1980.

NEW Right - Facing south along Hwy 10 & Hwy 24 towards the Hwy 24 South Junction in Caledon Village in 1980. Many of Caledon Village's main street buildings have been repurposed, relocated or demolished since this photo was taken. The Old Caledon Township Hall in the background was relocated back from the highway, while the Beckers Corner Store and Ultramar Service Station at left were demolished. Michael's Restaurant, located in the white house on the southwest corner of the intersection, has since been converted to a Tim Horton's restaurant. Note that the Ultramar Service Station was selling gasoline for 27.5 cents a litre in 1980 - the equivalent of about 80 cents a litre in 2018 Dollars. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on December 5, 1980.

HWY 10 #148             HWY 10 #141

NEW Left - View of Hwy 10 at the Inglewood Creek (Little Credit River) Culvert north of Olde Base Line Road, facing north towards Orangeville. The former site of a CNR crossing can be seen at the bottom of the hill. The railway crossing can be seen in an earlier 1980 photo (above), when the crossing was still active. This photo also shows a good example of a concrete rumble strip along Hwy 10 known as a "singing median". Many four-lane highways built in Ontario during the 1960s and 1970s had singing medians, which featured a concrete strip with a series of intermittent alternating recessed grooves and raised humps. The strips provided drivers with an audible warning that their vehicle's tires had encroached over the centreline of the highway. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on July 29, 1982.

HWY 10 #144             HWY 10 #137

NEW Left - Completed rehabilitation at the Credit River Bridge on Hwy 10 & Hwy 24 north of Caledon Village, facing north. Note the blown-down trees to the right of the highway, which were likely damaged by a strong series of storms which tore across Southern Ontario in May 1985, about a year before this photo was taken. A tornado touched down a short distance north of here, causing extensive damage to buildings and forests. The tornado destroyed a shopping centre on Hwy 10 & Hwy 24 just north of Orangeville. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on July 2, 1986.

HWY 10 #145             HWY 401 #810

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 10 & Hwy 24 towards Orangeville at the Credit River Bridge north of Caledon Village. Note the old "Caledon 25th Sideroad" fingerboard sign at right. Many rural roads in Ontario did not have street names prior to the 1980s and 1990s, and were instead referred to by their old township survey concession and sideroad numbers. With the rollout of 9-1-1 emergency telephone services across rural parts of Ontario, many rural roads were assigned street names. This was done, at least in part, to eliminate duplicate road names and the potential for confusion that this situation may cause for emergency dispatchers and first responders. A newer street name blade sign is visible at left, with 9-1-1 emergency address numbers marked. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on June 21, 1988.
