NEW Left - Facing east along Main Street (Hwy 10 & Hwy 89) in Downtown Shelburne. Hwy 10 & Hwy 89 share a brief overlapped route for 5 km between Shelburne and Primrose. At Primrose, Hwy 89 continues east towards Alliston, while Hwy 10 turns right and resumes its route south towards Toronto. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - King's Highway signs on westbound Main Street in Shelburne marking the upcoming turn-off to Hwy 10 North. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 10 #65 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 10 #63 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing west along Main Street (Hwy 10 & Hwy 89) in Downtown Shelburne, approaching Owen Sound Street. Traffic wishing to continue north along Hwy 10 must turn right at Owen Sound Street. As the street name implies, Hwy 10 heads northwest to Owen Sound. Hwy 89 continues straight ahead on its route west towards Mount Forest. See an Enlarged Photo here.

(Photograph taken on October 16, 2009 - © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Junction sign assembly at the Hwy 10 & Hwy 89 Junction in Downtown Shelburne. The west junction of Hwy 10 & Hwy 89 is somewhat unusual, as it occurs in the town centre rather than at a rural or suburban highway junction. Although King's Highways often connect in urban centres, the highway junction itself is seldom situated right in the downtown central core. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Facing north along Hwy 10 from Hwy 89 in Shelburne. It is interesting to note that all of Shelburne's historic buildings surrounding this intersection have managed to survive, thanks to the foresight of early town planners who laid out comparatively wide main streets. All too often, narrow main streets through Ontario towns left highway engineers with the difficult decision of either demolishing historic buildings around major intersections or bypassing towns altogether in order to accommodate transport trucks, buses and other long vehicles on Ontario's highways. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 10 #69 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 10 #72 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - The southbound Hwy 10 Stop Bar at the traffic signal had to be set far back from the intersection to allow trucks and buses to turn right onto Hwy 10 North. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on October 16, 2009 - © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - A transport truck makes the right turn from Main Street (Hwy 10 & Hwy 89) onto Owen Sound Street (Hwy 10 North) in Downtown Shelburne. Although transport trucks do have to take this corner slowly, the trucks can physically fit through the intersection. However, this situation was the exception in Ontario, rather than the rule. In towns with narrow streets, some of the buildings around major intersections had to be demolished in order to create an intersection which could handle transport trucks, buses and other long vehicles. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 10 #73 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 10 #74 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing south along Owen Sound Street (Hwy 10) at Main Street (Hwy 89). Due to the constrained geometric conditions at this intersection, the Stop Bar had to be set far back from the traffic signals in order to allow transport trucks to make right turns off of Main Street. Right turns are prohibited on red from southbound Hwy 10 to westbound Hwy 89. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing north along Hwy 6 towards the Hwy 10 Junction in Chatsworth.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Junction of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 in Chatsworth. The routes of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 run concurrently for about 13 km between Chatsworth and Owen Sound. The overlapped route of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 north of Chatsworth is the busiest two-lane King's Highway in the Owen Sound area.

HWY 6 #136 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 6 #137 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing south along Hwy 10 towards Markdale from the Hwy 6 Junction in Chatsworth.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Hwy 10 joins Hwy 6 in Chatsworth. A right-turn channelization was constructed at this intersection to serve the predominant Hwy 10 right turn traffic movement.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)





HWY 6 #140 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 6 #139 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The intersection of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 is on a considerable skew. Fortunately, the skewed intersection favours the predominant traffic movements, via Hwy 10. Very little traffic makes a left turn off of Northbound Hwy 10 onto Southbound Hwy 6, or a right turn from Northbound Hwy 6 onto Southbound Hwy 10.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - After sharing a concurrent route for 13 km, Hwy 10 turns left off of Hwy 6 and heads southeast towards Shelburne, Orangeville and Toronto. The route of Hwy 6 continues straight through at Chatsworth and heads south towards Durham, Guelph and Hamilton.

Left - Recently-installed Yield control on the right-turn channelization from Northbound Hwy 10 to Northbound Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 in Chatsworth. This was originally a free-flow right turn movement, but it was placed under Yield control due to the limited length of the acceleration lane downstream of the intersection.

HWY 6 #143 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 6 #142 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Traffic volumes increase rather substantially north of the Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 Junction in Chatsworth, since all traffic on these two highways gets funnelled into a single route between Chatsworth and Owen Sound. Heading south from Chatsworth, Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 traffic gets distributed almost evenly between the two highways once they part ways at the junction in Chatsworth.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Plaque commemorating the 19th Century Toronto-Sydenham Road, which was built to encourage settlement in the Owen Sound area. The historic Toronto-Sydenham Road more or less forms the present day route of Hwy 10.

Left - This abandoned twin-slab concrete highway was the original route of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10, until it was bypassed by a new highway alignment in the 1950s. This concrete pavement was constructed around 1923, during improvements to the Owen Sound-Chatsworth Highway.

Left - Facing south along Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 towards Chatsworth from the Hwy 21 and Hwy 26 Junction in Owen Sound. The routes of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 run concurrently for about 13 km from Chatsworth to Owen Sound. This overlapped routing between Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 has existed since route numbers were first introduced on Ontario Provincial Highways in 1925.

HWY 6 #186 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 6 #181 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Junction assembly at the northern terminus of Hwy 10 at the Hwy 21 & Hwy 26 Junction in Owen Sound. This highway junction is rather unique, as it marks the common terminus of three different King's Highways; Hwy 10, Hwy 21 & Hwy 26 all end here. Note the "Hwy 10 Ends" sign on the junction assembly. Traffic continuing straight through at the traffic signals follows Hwy 26 east towards Meaford, while left-turning traffic follows Hwy 6 & Hwy 21 into Downtown Owen Sound. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Facing west along Hwy 26 towards the Hwy 6, Hwy 10 & Hwy 21 Junction in Owen Sound. After travelling nearly 120 km from Barrie, Hwy 26 comes to an end at the signalized intersection. Traffic continuing straight through at the traffic signals follows Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 south towards Chatsworth, while right-turning traffic follows Hwy 6 & Hwy 21 into Downtown Owen Sound. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Western terminus of Hwy 26 at the Hwy 6, Hwy 10 & Hwy 21 Junction in Owen Sound. Unfortunately, there is no sign indicating that Hwy 26 ends at this junction.

HWY 6 #184 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 6 #185 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Northern terminus of Hwy 21 at the Hwy 6, Hwy 10 & Hwy 26 Junction in Owen Sound. Like Hwy 10 and Hwy 26, Hwy 21 also reaches its terminus at this intersection. Of the four highways which intersect here, only Hwy 6 continues beyond the intersection. Unfortunately, there is no sign indicating that Hwy 21 ends at this junction.
