Right - Facing east along Old Hwy 17 west of Mattawa. Note the new alignment of Hwy 17 (Earl's Lake Diversion), which joins in on the right in the far background. About 4 km of Hwy 17's route was relocated here in the late 1950s to avoid the steep grades approaching Mattawa. Compare this present day photo to this Historical Photo from the 1950s, showing the same section of highway before the Earl's Lake Diversion was built. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
