This page contains historical and present day photos of Ontario's King's Highway 110. Please note that Highway 110 was later known as Highway 7B, so photographs on this page are referenced by that number rather than Highway 110. All photographs displayed on this page were taken by the Webmaster (Cameron Bevers), unless specifically noted otherwise. Historical photographs are arranged in approximate chronological order, while present day photographs (Year 2000 to date) are arranged by location from west to east.

Right - Hwy 7 & Hwy 7B Junction near Carleton Place, facing east. Prior to the completion of the Carleton Place Bypass in the late 1950s, the Trans-Canada Highway passed directly through Carleton Place. Following the completion of the bypass, a B-suffixed Business Route was established to direct traffic into downtown from the bypass. The Hwy 7B Business Route was decommissioned as a provincial highway in 1998 and was transferred to the County of Lanark. Today, Former Hwy 7B is merely signed as Townline Road West when approaching on Hwy 7. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Western terminus of Hwy 7B at the Carleton Place Bypass (Hwy 7) Junction. Due to a closure of a nearby bridge over the Mississippi River, an extraordinarily high volume of traffic was using Townline Road during the Summer of 2022. This highway junction is normally not this busy. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - View of both the old and new highway routes approaching Carleton Place. Prior to 1959, Hwy 15 (known today as Hwy 7) entered Carleton Place from the west via High Street. Today, through traffic on Hwy 7 uses a bypass which passes around the western and southern side of Carleton Place. A part of High Street in the foreground was simply abandoned once the Carleton Place Bypass opened to traffic in December 1959. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - The overgrown remains of Old Hwy 15 can be seen departing from the Hwy 7B Junction west of Carleton Place. Just ahead, the original highway tied back into the Carleton Place Bypass, which can be seen curving off to the left in the foreground of this photo. Traffic hasn't used this old section of road since the bypass at left was completed in 1959. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Approaching the Hwy 7B Junction on Old Hwy 15 (High Street), facing east towards Carleton Place. As traffic whizzes past on the Hwy 7 Bypass a short distance to the right, one can imagine an era of more leisurely travel on our King's Highways as this long gentle curve on Old Hwy 15 approaches Carleton Place from the west. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Junction of Old Hwy 15 (High Street) and Hwy 7B (Townline Road) adjacent to the Carleton Place Bypass (Hwy 7). This once-important highway junction is now a minor intersection of a quiet residential street. Townline Road at left was assumed by the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) as a new King's Highway in 1948. Known initially as the Hwy 15 Carleton Place Cut-Off, the route served as a convenient northern bypass of Carleton Place which offered improved access to Hwy 29 to Arnprior. Over the years, the Townline Road route has also been known by several other different route numbers - Hwy 110, Hwy 15B and ultimately, Hwy 7B. Provincial ownership of Townline Road ceased in 1998, when jurisdiction over Hwy 7B was transferred to the County of Lanark. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - A short section of Old Hwy 15 was kept open to local traffic near the Hwy 7 & Hwy 7B Junction to service adjacent properties on the old highway's route. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 7B (Townline Road) towards Carleton Place from the Hwy 7 Junction. The 2-mile (3.2 km) bypass route offered by Townline Road greatly improved traffic flow through this area once the road was assumed by the DHO as the Hwy 15 Carleton Place Cut-Off in 1948. The old King's Highway routes through Carleton Place were narrow, awkward routes with tight turns which were difficult for large vehicles to negotiate. Townline Road offered a wide, straight highway route across town. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Following the jurisdictional transfer of Hwy 7B to Lanark County in 1998, the old King's Highway signs were removed and replaced with municipal "flowerpot" route markers. Letter-suffixed county road numbers were once extremely common in Ontario, but they have dwindled greatly in numbers in recent decades. Lanark's County Road 7B is one of the few surviving examples of a letter-suffixed county road route number. In this case, however, the county simply reused the old King's Highway number which previously existed here. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Provincial ownership of Hwy 7B ended at Carleton Place's municipal limits. At one time, DHO maintained jurisdiction over Townline Road all the way across town to Hwy 29 (today's Lanark Road 29), but all sections of Hwy 7B lying within the town limits were transferred to the Town of Carleton Place in 1968. The jurisdictional transfer of Hwy 7B in 1998 only encompassed the short 1.4 km provincially-owned section of the highway lying west of the town limits. The rest of the route was a non-assumed section of the highway that formed part of a Municipal Connecting Link. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 7B #13 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 7B #12 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing east along Hwy 7B (Townline Road) at Bridge Street (Old Hwy 15). Prior to the completion of the East Carleton Place Bypass (McNeeley Avenue) in the 1990s, this intersection used to mark the eastern terminus of Hwy 7B. Once Hwy 15 was rerouted onto the East Carleton Place Bypass, Hwy 7B was extended easterly along the old route of Hwy 15 via Townline Road from Bridge Street to McNeeley Avenue. Up until the 1970s, Hwy 7B formed a full loop through Carleton Place and returned back to Hwy 7 via Bridge Street and Downtown Carleton Place. For some reason, the full Hwy 7B loop through the town centre was discontinued in the 1970s. Since then, Hwy 7B has been a spur route into Carleton Place which did not connect back to Hwy 7. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Approaching the Hwy 7B Junction (Townline Road) on Bridge Street (Old Hwy 15), facing north. Prior to 1994, northbound motorists arriving at this intersection could either return to Hwy 7 via Hwy 7B at left, or turn right and continue north along Hwy 15 towards Almonte and Arnprior. Following the completion of the East Carleton Place Bypass (McNeeley Avenue) and the relocation of Hwy 15 onto the bypass, the entire length of Townline Road became known as Hwy 7B. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing south along Bridge Street (Old Hwy 15) towards Downtown Carleton Place from Townline Road (Hwy 7B). As can be seen in the historical photos above, Bridge Street has borne several different route numbers over the years, and was once signed as Hwy 7B & Hwy 29. The section of Hwy 29 from Carleton Place northerly to Arnprior was renumbered as Hwy 15 in the 1980s. It is interesting to note that each and every one of the King's Highways approaching Carleton Place has had their route number changed at least once during their respective histories. An additional curiosity about Carleton Place is that the King's Highways leading in every direction from Carleton Place (north, south, east and west) have all been signed as a part of Hwy 15 at one time or another. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Above - Green guide sign at Bridge Street and Townline Road (Hwy 7B) in Carleton Place. Lanark County has done a commendable job of providing guidance to motorists departing Downtown Carleton Place on Bridge Street to nearby highways. Many municipalities sign their county roads to destinations only, without any reference to nearby King's Highways or other major county roads. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
