Right - Another view of the old Hwy 23 alignment south of Monkton. Although the pavement was removed decades ago, the grading for the superelevated curve is still quite apparent in this photo. The DHO constructed hundreds of these small corner diversions on the King's Highways during the 1930s and 1940s as highways were reconstructed to accommodate high-speed through traffic. The current highway lies just to the east. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
