Historical King's Highway 14 Photographs


HWY 14 #3             HWY 2 #62

Left - Circa 1910 postcard view of the original Belleville Bay Bridge on Hwy 14. The structure shown above was completed as a toll bridge in 1890. It was replaced by the Department of Public Highways in stages between 1927 and 1931 with new steel truss spans, a swing span, and a short causeway. This Belleville Bay Swing Bridge was replaced with the current high-level structure (the Norris Whitney Bridge) in 1982. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 14 #6

NEW Above - A Department of Highways' zone striping truck performing line painting operations on Hwy 14 near Mountain View south of Belleville in 1950. Pavement markings were first introduced on Ontario's Highways in 1930. Originally, line paint was only used to mark the highway centreline approaching the crest of hills on asphalt-surfaced highways. This was done to improve highway safety by encouraging motorists to stay in their own traffic lane in places where visibility of oncoming traffic was restricted. No line paint was used on concrete-surfaced highways at first, as it was initially assumed that the centre construction joint between the two concrete slabs provided adequate lane guidance to motorists. The use of line paint became much more prevalent on both concrete and asphalt-surfaced highways by the end of the 1930s. However, line paint was still only warranted for use under certain traffic or geometric conditions. Line paint was introduced on narrow highway pavements, sharp curves, approaching traffic signals and railway crossings, on multi-lane highways and on all heavily-traveled two-lane King's Highways. The introduction of line paint was also helpful to mark safe passing zone opportunities on busy highways, hence why the Department of Highways originally called this maintenance practice "zone painting" or "zone striping". As the King's Highway System became progressively busier after World War II, the painting of highway centrelines just became a standard maintenance practice on all King's Highways.

NEW Above - Junction assembly on northbound Hwy 62 approaching the Hwy 14 Junction near Foxboro. Up until the 1990s, Hwy 14 was a King's Highway which connected Foxboro to Marmora, via Stirling. Jurisdiction over the highway was transferred from the province to the County of Hastings in 1996, who subsequently delegated highway maintenance responsibilities to its various townships. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing south towards Belleville along the Foxboro Bypass (Hwy 62) from the Hwy 14 Junction. The Foxboro Bypass was opened to traffic on November 1, 1963. The new bypass allowed through traffic on Hwy 14 to bypass the community of Foxboro altogether. The bypass also provided more direct access to the well-traveled Foxboro-Madoc Road, a development road which was ultimately assumed by the province as an extension of Hwy 62 in 1966. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 62 #179 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #177 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 62 at the Hwy 14 Junction near Foxboro. From this junction, Hwy 14 heads northwesterly towards Stirling and Marmora via the Foxboro-Stirling Road, while Hwy 62 continues straight ahead (north) towards Madoc and Bancroft. Prior to the completion of the Foxboro Bypass in 1963, the route of Hwy 14 continued east from this intersection into Foxboro via Ducette Road. The channelized right turn ramp at left which carries southbound Hwy 14 traffic to southbound Hwy 62 was completed during an intersection improvement project carried out in 1970. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - View of Ducette Road (Old Hwy 14) facing east from the Foxboro Bypass (Hwy 62). As originally established in the 1920s, Hwy 14 continued east into Foxboro and turned right at Ashley Street where the highway continued south towards Belleville. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Green guide sign marking the Hwy 62 Junction at the southern terminus of Hwy 14 near Foxboro. Following the completion of the Foxboro Bypass in 1963, Hwy 14 turned right at this intersection and proceeded directly towards Belleville. In an effort to simplify route numbering in the area, Hwy 14 was truncated at this junction in 1984. In turn, Hwy 62 was extended south along the existing route of Hwy 14 between Foxboro and Bloomfield, via Belleville. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing south along Hwy 62 approaching the Hwy 14 Junction near Foxboro. Prior to 1984, Hwy 62 reached its southern terminus at this highway junction. The through road continued south towards Belleville as Hwy 14. In an effort to simplify route numbering in the Belleville area, the southern leg of Hwy 14 between Foxboro and Bloomfield was renumbered as Hwy 62 in 1984. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 14 #14 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 14 #20 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Junction of Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 in Downtown Stirling, facing west. At this intersection, Hwy 14 turns right from Front Street onto North Street and continues north from Stirling towards Marmora. Hwy 33 begins at this junction and continues straight ahead via Front Street. About 1 km ahead, Hwy 33 turns south towards Frankford and Trenton. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on August 17, 2008  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Even though it is only a four-leg intersection, the traffic signals at the Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 Junction in Downtown Stirling have a very unusual layout. A third street (Mill Street) intersects Front Street and North Street at an angle within the intersection, which means that some directions of traffic have to move on their own dedicated signal phase. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 14 #11 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 14 #13 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Junction of Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 in Downtown Stirling, facing east along Front Street. Hwy 33 reaches its historical (pre-1996) northern terminus at this highway junction. During the 1990s, jurisdiction over the entire route of Hwy 33 between Bloomfield and Stirling was transferred from the province to the Counties of Prince Edward and Hastings. At the traffic signals, Hwy 14 South continues straight ahead towards Foxboro and Belleville via Front Street, while Hwy 14 North (at left) heads north towards Marmora via North Street. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 14 #19 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 14 #18 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing southwest along Mill Street approaching the Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 Junction in Downtown Stirling. This fourth intersection leg joins in at an angle, which makes for a rather complicated traffic signal layout. Traffic using the north and northeast legs of this intersection must move on their own protected phase. No Right Turn on Red prohibitions are in place on many of the intersection legs, to avoid potential conflicts with advancing traffic from one of the other intersection legs. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on August 17, 2008  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Facing south along North Street (Hwy 14) at the Hwy 33 Junction (Front Street) in Downtown Stirling. From here, Hwy 14 turns left onto Front Street and heads southeasterly towards Foxboro and Belleville. Traffic turning right at this junction will briefly head west along Front Street before heading south via Hwy 33 towards Frankford and Trenton. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
