Left - Facing east along a former Hwy 17 alignment at the Kirk Creek Bridge west of Verner. This former section of Hwy 17 (St. Amour Road) was bypassed by a new highway diversion in 1948. The relocated highway bypassed several narrow bridges on the original highway, including this one. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Above - Abandoned alignment of Hwy 17 east of Wahnapitae. Note the grooved concrete pavement, which was designed to facilitate pavement drainage and assist in vehicle traction on steep grades. This section of concrete pavement was constructed in 1938. It was one of many Hwy 17 improvement projects carried out on the eastern approach to Sudbury during the late 1930s.
