Present Day King's Highway 148 Photographs

Left - Facing west along Hwy 17 towards Petawawa approaching Round Lake Road (Hwy 62 & Hwy 148) near Pembroke. Up until 1997, Round Lake Road south of the Hwy 17 Junction was part of King's Highway 62, while north of the Hwy 17 Junction, Round Lake Road was known as King's Highway 148. Both of these provincial highways were transferred to the County of Renfrew in 1997. Renfrew County renamed the two former highways collectively as Renfrew County Road 58. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing north along Round Lake Road (Hwy 62) towards the Hwy 17 Junction near Pembroke. Prior to 1997, Hwy 62 reached its northern terminus at the Hwy 17 Junction. As a result of highway transfers and government service realignment in the 1990s, provincial ownership of Hwy 62 now ends in Maynooth, located about 130 km to the south. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Prior to 1997, the County Road 58 flowerpot route marker would have been a Hwy 148 provincial crown sign. Jurisdiction over both Hwy 62 & Hwy 148 in this area was transferred from the province to the County of Renfrew, effective March 31, 1997. See an Enlarged Photo here.
