Left - Facing north towards Fowlers Corners at the Hwy 28 Interchange on Hwy 7 & Hwy 115 at Springville, southwest of Peterborough. Prior to the extension of Hwy 115 from Springville to Peterborough in 1978, Hwy 115 used to end at this interchange. Until 1984, Hwy 28 used to continue straight through (north) towards Five Mile Corners, located south of Fowlers Corners. Hwy 28 was rerouted southwest of Peterborough in the 1980s and was signed concurrently with Hwy 115 between 1984 and 2003. Originally, Hwy 7 did not pass through this interchange at all. However, the Hwy 7 designation was applied to the highway through Springville in 2003, in order to close a gap left over when a section of Hwy 7 (North Monaghan Parkway and Sir Sandford Fleming Drive) was downloaded to the County of Peterborough in 1997. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Dual underpass structures carry the freeway over Hwy 28. The northbound Hwy 115 structure is much older than the southbound Hwy 115 structure, due to the fact that Hwy 115 was constructed as a staged freeway through this interchange. Hwy 115 was initially built as an undivided two-lane highway, but was later expanded to a four-lane freeway in the mid-1980s.

NEW Left - Green guide signs at the Airport Road Interchange near Peterborough, marking the entrance ramp to Hwy 7 East & Hwy 115 North. These two highways share a concurrent overlapped route for about 13 km near Peterborough. Both Ottawa and Peterborough are signed as destination control cities at this interchange.

NEW Left - Green guide signs at the Airport Road Interchange near Peterborough, marking the entrance ramp to Hwy 7 West and Hwy 115 South. Toronto is logically shown as the destination control city on this sign, even though Hwy 7 does not enter (and historically has never entered) the City of Toronto. However, if one is departing from Peterborough via this freeway, it is unlikely that your destination is anything other than the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing east along Charlotte Street (Former Hwy 28 & Hwy 115) at Monaghan Road (Former Hwy 7B). Prior to 1997, Hwy 28 turned left at this intersection and headed north along Monaghan Road concurrently with Hwy 7B. The route of Hwy 115 reached its pre-1997 northern terminus at this junction. The route of Hwy 7B also continued south from here along Monaghan Road to Lansdowne Street, where the route of Hwy 7B turned easterly towards the Peterborough Bypass and Ottawa. As a result of the downloading of various highways and revocation of municipal connecting links in the Peterborough area in 1997-1998, there are no longer any provincial highways which pass through the urbanized sections of Peterborough. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Dual structures over the Otonabee River on the Peterborough Bypass (Hwy 7 & Hwy 115). As originally constructed, the Peterborough Bypass was an undivided two-lane highway. The bridge seen at right is the original Peterborough Bypass structure, which was completed in 1960. When the Peterborough Bypass was expanded from two to four lanes in the 1980s, a new structure was built at left to carry westbound traffic only. The original structure at right was then converted to carry eastbound traffic only. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 7 #542 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 7 #543 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Eastbound Peterborough Bypass structure over the Otonabee River. This complicated structure was completed in 1960. It consists of a three-span haunched steel plate girder main structure over the Otonabee River and Trent-Severn Waterway along with eight steel beam approach spans. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Ground-mounted freeway guide sign for Hwy 7 East at the end of the Peterborough Bypass. Although Hwy 7 continues east from Peterborough towards Norwood, Madoc and eventually Ottawa, Hwy 115 reaches its northern terminus at the traffic signals just ahead. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 7 #548 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 7 #549 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Eastern end of the Peterborough Bypass (Hwy 7 & Hwy 115) approaching Lansdowne Street. At one time, Lansdowne Street west of this intersection was a signed business route (Hwy 7B) which passed through Peterborough. After a rather circuitous loop, Peterborough's Hwy 7B connected back to Hwy 7 west of the city at Fowlers Corners. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 7 #550 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 7 #551 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Ground-mounted guide sign marking the former route of Hwy 7B into Peterborough via Lansdowne Street. The route of Hwy 7B was decommissioned as a King's Highway in 1997, although the green patch placed over the old Hwy 7B crown is still quite obvious. This sign was replaced shortly after this photo was taken in 2007. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on September 23, 2007  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Facing west along Hwy 7 approaching the Peterborough Bypass Junction. At the traffic signals, Hwy 7 turns left and begins a concurrent overlapped route with Hwy 115. Up until 1997, motorists could also follow the Hwy 7B Business Route through Peterborough. Although much longer that the route offered by Hwy 7, Peterborough's Hwy 7B did form a complete loop. It eventually reconnected back to Hwy 7 at Fowlers Corners. The ramp seen joining in at left carries traffic from the Peterborough Bypass to eastbound Hwy 7. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
