Historical King's Highway 112 Photographs

HWY 11 #201

Above - Junction of the Round Lake Cutoff (Hwy 11) and Hwy 112 near Tarzwell in 1952. As originally assumed in 1937, the route of Hwy 11 followed the highway to the right of this "Y" Junction. In the late 1930s, a program was initiated to reduce the highway distance between North Bay and Cochrane by constructing diversions along Hwy 11 at key locations. A new highway diversion known as the Round Lake Cutoff was completed from Tarzwell to Kenogami in 1941. The route of Hwy 11 was signed along this new diversion, as can be seen in this photo at left. Unfortunately, the bypassed section of Hwy 11 at right also retained the Hwy 11 route number. Motorists arriving at this "Y" Junction from the south were understandably confused, when they saw the route of Hwy 11 forking into two separate highways in front of them. In what was an apparent acknowledgement of this problem, note that the DHO had already removed the Hwy 11 shield over the Kirkland Lake sign at right even before this photo was taken in 1952. The problem was ultimately resolved in 1953, when the old north-south section of Hwy 11 leading into Kirkland Lake was given an entirely new King's Highway route number, thus creating Hwy 112. Photo taken on September 4, 1952.
