HWY 10 #24             HWY 10 #25

Left - Facing north along Hwy 10 & Hwy 24 towards Orangeville at the Credit River Bridge north of Caledon Village. Note the dual Hwy 10 & Hwy 24 route markers in the background. These two highways shared a common route between Caledon Village and Shelburne up until 1998, when the northern section of Hwy 24 was downloaded to the Counties of Simcoe, Grey and Dufferin. This section of Hwy 10 was recently widened to a four-lane highway with a continuous two-way centre left turn lane. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in July, 1967.

HWY 401 #1212

Above - Aerial view of the Hwy 24 Interchange on Hwy 401 in Cambridge in 1974. The lack of development around the interchange at that time is quite remarkable. The Hwy 24 Interchange was originally constructed in 1960 as a full eight-ramp cloverleaf. In 1989, the widening of Hwy 401 and the twinning of the Hwy 24 Overpass resulted in a complete reconstruction of the original cloverleaf interchange. The two far-side loop ramps were removed, creating a "Parclo A-4" interchange. The current interchange configuration can be seen in this 2005 Aerial Photo. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1974.

HWY 9 #84 - © Cameron Bevers

Above - Approaching the Hwy 10 & Hwy 24 Junction on Hwy 9 in Orangeville in 1977. Note the green guide sign at right, showing the concurrent routes of Hwy 9, Hwy 10 and Hwy 24. Until the Orangeville sections of Hwy 9 and Hwy 24 were downloaded in 1998, this highway junction represented a rare situation where three King's Highways shared a concurrent route. See an Enlarged Photo here. Photo taken in November, 1977.
