Right - Approaching Kincardine Avenue on Hwy 21, facing north. Until the early 1980s, Hwy 21 turned left and followed Kincardine Avenue through Downtown Kincardine. However, the completion of the Kincardine Bypass in 1980 allowed through traffic on Hwy 21 to bypass Kincardine altogether. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 21 #76             HWY 21 #78

Left - Signs marking the upcoming Hwy 21 Junction on Kincardine Avenue (Old Hwy 21). Until the Kincardine Bypass was completed in 1980, all Hwy 21 traffic had to pass through Downtown Kincardine. After the Kincardine Bypass was completed, the route of Hwy 21 was moved onto the new route along the eastern side of town, while the former alignment of Hwy 21 through Downtown Kincardine was decommissioned as a King's Highway.

Right - Facing south along Hwy 21 between Port Elgin and Tiverton. The windmills in the background are part of a large wind farm that was established recently along the shores of Lake Huron to generate electricity. This is one of many new wind farms that have sprung up in Ontario in recent years. While there are few who would refute the fact that our society needs to explore more sustainable energy sources, the dramatic impact that these wind farms have on Ontario's pastoral landscapes cannot be overlooked.

HWY 21 #25             HWY 21 #32

Left - Old piers and overgrown abutments mark the site of the original Southampton Bridge. The old bridge is located at the end of Carlisle Street, about 3 km northeast of Downtown Southampton. Carlisle Street once formed a cut-off route for Hwy 21 that bypassed Southampton altogether. The bridge was never reopened after being closed in the 1940s. Since that time, all Hwy 21 traffic has passed through Downtown Southampton.

Right - The old Southampton Bridge on the Hwy 21 cut-off was badly damaged by a flood in 1947, and was later demolished. See an Enlarged Photo here.
