Present Day King's Highway 132 Photographs

Right - Facing south along Hwy 41 towards Griffith at Tooey's Hill, at the Hwy 132 Junction. Tooey's Hill marks the edge of the Opeongo Mountains, a series of steep-sided hills which stretch from the eastern side of Algonquin Park down towards the Arnprior area. The Opeongo Mountains formed a rather formidable natural barrier along the southern side of the Ottawa Valley, which prohibited railway construction and discouraged settlement into these highlands for the better part of a century. The construction of Hwy 41 across the highlands greatly improved transportation through the area.

Right - Facing south along Hwy 41 towards Tooey's Hill from the Hwy 132 Junction. Hwy 41 crosses the Opeongo Mountains at Tooey's Hill, which is one of the only low points in the highlands south of Barry's Bay. Up until the 1930s, travel into the region beyond the Opeongo Mountains was very difficult. No railways had ever been built through this area due to the rugged terrain and the roads leading into the highlands were only seasonal. After Hwy 41 was designated as a new provincial highway between Kaladar and Eganville in 1937, an aggressive highway improvement program commenced which resulted in Hwy 41 being reconstructed from a seasonal dirt road into a reliable year-round through highway. By 1948, Hwy 41 had been fully paved through the highlands as far south as Denbigh.

Right - Hwy 41 & Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. At this intersection, Hwy 41 turns left to continue north towards Eganville and Pembroke, while Hwy 132 is actually the through route which continues east to Dacre and Renfrew.

Left - Oversized crown signs at the Hwy 41 & Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. The sudden change in Hwy 41's direction at this intersection likely comes as a surprise to many northbound Hwy 41 motorists, who have travelled along the same roadway since Napanee, 150 km to the south.

Left - Southbound Hwy 41 continues beyond the Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. However, to stay on Hwy 41, southbound traffic must turn right. To facilitate this Southbound Hwy 41 movement, a right-turn channel was constructed at this highway junction.

Right - Guide signs at the Hwy 41 & Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. A left turn at this T-intersection will lead motorists to Renfrew via Hwy 132. Although it isn't indicated by any signs, motorists who miss the right-turn channel can still continue south towards Griffith via Hwy 41 by turning right at this T-intersection.
