Historical King's Highway 141 Photographs


HWY 532 #4

Above - Circa 1945 postcard view of the Bracebridge-Rosseau Secondary Road (Hwy 532, which later became Hwy 141) at Skeleton Bay, Lake Rosseau. Apart from improvements to the roadway width, pavement and installation of newer roadside barriers since the 1940s, the present day route of Hwy 141 around Skeleton Bay still looks quite similar today. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken circa 1945.

This contract included the reconstruction of both the north and south Hwy 516 & Hwy 532 Junctions north of Bracebridge, along with the reconstruction of Hwy 516 (later known as Hwy 141) from Patterson's Corners to the Hwy 11 Junction at Port Sydney. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1969.

Right - Facing east along the Hwy 141 Extension from the new Hwy 400 Interchange south of Horseshoe Lake. As a result of the construction of the new Hwy 400 Extension, Hwy 141 was also extended west from Hwy 69 to connect with Hwy 400 in 2003. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 69 approaching the Hwy 141 West Junction between Gordon Bay and Hayes Corners. This was a new highway junction completed in 2003, as part of the adjacent Hwy 400 Extension. Hwy 141 was extended west from Hwy 69 at Hayes Corners to join with the new route of Hwy 400. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Junction assembly on northbound Hwy 69 approaching the Hwy 141 West Junction between Gordon Bay and Hayes Corners. The route of Hwy 400 is trailblazed using green "To 400" route markers via westbound Hwy 141. The Hwy 141 Interchange is the first access point along Hwy 400 since the Hwy 69 Interchange south of MacTier. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Cul-de-sac on the former Hwy 69 alignment at the Hwy 141 West Junction between Gordon Bay and Hayes Corners. In 2003, Hwy 69 was realigned so that it intersected with the relocated route of Hwy 141. The realignment left behind a short bypassed section of Hwy 69, which terminated at this point. In the background, the concurrent route of Hwy 69 & Hwy 141 can be seen continuing north towards Parry Sound. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Junction assembly and fingerboard destination signs at the Hwy 69 & Hwy 141 West Junction between Gordon Bay and Hayes Corners. Interestingly, traffic bound for Parry Sound is directed to follow Hwy 141 West to Hwy 400. Although it may seem somewhat counter-intuitive to turn west at this junction, motorists will find that travel times between using Hwy 400 and Hwy 69 to reach Parry Sound from this highway junction are more or less comparable. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on April 12, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Advisory sign on Hwy 141 indicating the pending removal of the Hwy 69 designation. In September 2012, Hwy 69 route markers were removed along the highway between MacTier and the Nobel area. As the sign indicates, the former route of Hwy 69 between MacTier and Horseshoe Lake is now known as Lake Joseph Road. The old highway was assigned unposted 7000-series highway numbers. From MacTier to Hwy 141, Old Hwy 69 is referred to internally by MTO as Hwy 7289 and from Hwy 141 to Horseshoe Lake, Old Hwy 69 is known as Hwy 7290. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 141 at the Hwy 69 South Junction between Gordon Bay and Hayes Corners. The route of Hwy 141 continues west beyond Hwy 69 for about 1 km, where it terminates at the Hwy 400 Interchange. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

From Hayes Corners, Hwy 141 now continues south concurrently with Hwy 69, where it connects with Hwy 400 near the Parry Sound Area Municipal Airport. The 4 km extension of Hwy 141 came into effect in October, 2003, in conjunction with the Hwy 400 Extension to Horseshoe Lake. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Hwy 69 & Hwy 141 route markers at Hayes Corners, facing north. These two highways have intersected at Hayes Corners ever since Hwy 141 was first established as a King's Highway in 1974. It wasn't until 2003 that Hwy 69 & Hwy 141 shared a brief concurrent route south of Hayes Corners. As a result of the Hwy 400 Extension's completion to Horseshoe Lake in 2003, Hwy 141 was extended west from Hayes Corners by about 4 km to reach the new freeway. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing north along Raymond Road (Former Hwy 516 & Hwy 532) approaching the Hwy 141 Junction at Patterson's Corners. This view of the highway shows the relocated highway junction constructed in the late 1960s. At the time of the highway junction's construction in 1968-1969, Hwy 532 was considered the "through highway" at the junction. Today, Hwy 141 approaches Patterson's Corners along the former route of Hwy 516 East (at right) and the former route of Hwy 532 West (straight ahead). Although these two highways also shared an overlapped route via Raymond Road south of this highway junction, jurisdiction over these two routes was transferred from the province to the District Municipality of Muskoka in April 1972. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - View of Patterson's Corners, facing north along Raymond Road. Prior to 1972, Former Hwy 516 turned right and headed east towards Port Sydney, while Former Hwy 532 continued straight ahead towards Rosseau. The road from Port Sydney to Hayes Corners was designated as a King's Highway (Hwy 141) in December 1974. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Junction sign assembly and fingerboard guide signs at Patterson's Corners. Today, Hwy 141 turns right heading westbound and heads northwesterly towards Rosseau. Motorists can also reach Bracebridge via Raymond Road (Muskoka Road 35) by turning left at this highway junction. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 141 #23 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 141 #22 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Approaching Patterson's Corners on Hwy 141, facing east. The relocated highway junction at Patterson's Corners offered significantly improved geometry and better sight lines for motorists approaching the intersection. The old highway junction at Patterson's Corners was inconspicuous on most of the approaches. One of the curiosities of this highway junction though is that the current highway's route (Hwy 141) is not actually the through highway at the intersection. Motorists have to turn left to continue east along Hwy 141. Historically, Hwy 532 continued straight through at this highway junction, which meant that the junction's layout was in keeping with the route numbers in place at the time of the highway junction's construction in the late 1960s. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 141 towards the former location of the Hwy 516 & Hwy 532 Junction at Patterson Road. The highway junction was relocated about 100 metres west of its old location during the late 1960s, in order to improve the intersection's geometry and thereby offer better sight lines for motorists using the junction. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 141 #19 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 141 #20 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing west along Hwy 141 approaching the highway junction at Patterson's Corners. Today, Hwy 141 turns right at this junction and continues west towards Rosseau. Prior to 1972, Hwy 516 turned left and followed Raymond Road (Hwy 532) south to the Windermere Road. The northwestern leg of Hwy 532 from this junction to Hayes Corners via Rosseau was renumbered as Hwy 141 in 1974. The former leg of Hwy 516 & Hwy 532 via Raymond Road was transferred to the District Municipality of Muskoka in 1972. The old overlapped route Hwy 516 & Hwy 532 via Raymond Road is known today as Muskoka Road 35. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on May 23, 2020  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - View of the bypassed route of Hwy 516 & Hwy 532 (Patterson Road), as seen from the current route of Hwy 141. The revised highway junction completed at Patterson's Corners in 1969 bypassed a very sharp curve in the old highway's route approaching the junction from the south and a significant grade on the old highway's approach to the junction from the north. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 141 #21 - © Cameron Bevers

Above - View of the bypassed route of Hwy 516 & Hwy 532 (Patterson Road) where it intersects with the current route of Hwy 141. Although the road has now been closed for many decades, Hwy 532 used to continue straight ahead across the road from this intersection towards Rosseau. Today, there is little trace of the original route of Hwy 532 along the northern side of Hwy 141. Although it is not easy to detect anymore due to the vegetation and undergrowth, there was a significant grade along the old north leg of this highway junction. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
