Left - The channelization at Hwy 17 West and Hwy 17A might very well qualify as Ontario's longest off-ramp. At 1.1 km, this one-way ramp is actually a former alignment of Hwy 17.

Left - A long-abandoned alignment of Hwy 17 west of Keewatin has become so overgrown that it can only be seen easily in winter, when the undergrowth is covered in snow, and the trees have no leaves
(Photograph taken on March 31, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - This abandoned alignment of Hwy 17 near Clearwater Bay is several kilometres long

Left - A sharp banked curve on an abandoned Hwy 17 alignment west of Hwy 673. The section of Hwy 17 from Kenora to the Manitoba Boundary has one of the province's richest concentrations of abandoned alignments. The highway has been realigned almost in its entirety since it opened in 1932.

Right - This old alignment can be seen rejoining the current Hwy 17 in the background.

Left - This abandoned alignment of Hwy 17 actually crosses the Ontario-Manitoba boundary. Ontario continued to use white centre line markings for many years after Manitoba switched from white to yellow centre line markings. Consequently, the exact point at which this abandoned Hwy 17 alignment crosses the provincial boundary and becomes Manitoba's Hwy 1 is quite clear in this photo. Note the change in the colour of the centre line markings from white to yellow.

Left - This is the very first Hwy 17 sign heading east from the Ontario-Manitoba Boundary. Unfortunately, there is no "Hwy 17 Ends" sign heading westbound across the Manitoba Boundary.
(Photograph taken on August 26, 2003  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - At the Manitoba Boundary, King's Highway 17 ends its 2,000 km journey across Ontario. The Trans-Canada Highway continues westward via Manitoba's Hwy 1, shown here in this photo.
