Right - The Beaver Creek Bridge is one of the few structures in MTO's Northwest Region that still retains its original steel handrails. Many structures in the Kenora area have had their original steel handrails replaced with box beam guide rails during bridge rehabilitation projects over the past 20 years. Box beam guide rails are widely used on highway bridges in Northwestern Ontario. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 105 from the Hwy 17 Junction at Vermilion Bay. It is a very lonely 175 km drive from Vermilion Bay to Red Lake along Hwy 105. This route was originally known as the Red Lake Road, but it was designated as Hwy 105 when the road was completed in 1947. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing south along Hwy 105 towards the Hwy 17 Junction at Vermilion Bay. At this highway junction, Hwy 105 begins its long 175 km journey north to the distant gold mining communities of the Red Lake district. This highway forms the only road link to the Red Lake area. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Erroneous green guide sign approaching the Hwy 105 Junction on Hwy 17 at Vermilion Bay. On this sign, Hwy 105 is marked as a Secondary Highway, when it is in fact a King's Highway. However, the subsequent guide sign at the highway junction (shown in the next photo) correctly marks Hwy 105 as a King's Highway. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Green guide sign marking the Hwy 105 Junction on Hwy 17 at Vermilion Bay. Hwy 105 is one of only two King's Highway routes which intersect Hwy 17 between the Hwy 11 Junction near Thunder Bay and the Hwy 71 Junction in Kenora. The only other route is Hwy 72, which connects to Hwy 17 at Dinorwic, just east of Dryden. See an Enlarged Photo here.
