Right - Approaching Waterford on Old Hwy 24, facing south. Waterford was one of several villages bypassed in the late 1960s, when Hwy 24 was relocated onto a new and much-improved route between Simcoe and Brantford. The original 1927 route of Hwy 24, seen here, was rather winding and indirect. The highway passed through several sizeable communities along the way between Simcoe and Brantford. Old Hwy 24 is now known as Norfolk County Road 24 and Brant County Road 24 in Norfolk and Brant Counties, respectively. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Old Hwy 24 near Townsend Concession 5, facing south towards Waterford. By the 1960s, the old route of Hwy 24 had become quite developed, with frequent private entrances along the highway. The highway had a narrow right-of-way and minimal roadside shoulders. As a result, utility poles along the highway encroached very close to the edge of the pavement. Rather than trying to improve the existing route of Hwy 24 any further, the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) instead elected to build an entirely new route for Hwy 24 just a short distance to the west during the 1960s. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 24 #100 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 24 #99 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Approaching the Mount Pleasant turn-off on Old Hwy 24, facing north. A channelized right-turn ramp carries northbound traffic towards Brantford. As originally established in 1927, Hwy 24 turned right at the next intersection and continued in a northeasterly direction into Brantford, via Mount Pleasant. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on May 11, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - This channelized right-turn ramp near Mount Pleasant once carried Hwy 24 traffic in both directions. The ramp was converted to one-way traffic during the 1960s. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing south along Old Hwy 24 approaching the Mount Pleasant turn-off. The end of the channelized right turn ramp can be seen joining Old Hwy 24 at right. Southbound traffic on Old Hwy 24 heading for Waterford must turn left at the stop sign in the distance. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - This sharp curve on Old Hwy 24 approaching Mount Pleasant likely caught many motorists off-guard. The construction of the new Hwy 24 corridor in the 1960s bypassed several hazardous curves on the original 1927 highway route, including this example. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 24 #68 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 24 #69 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing north along the Hwy 24 Bypass approaching Scotland. From this point north to the Hwy 53 Junction, the Hwy 24 Bypass was constructed on a brand new alignment. Although it not a fully controlled-access highway or staged freeway, access points onto the Hwy 24 Bypass north of Scotland are limited to a handful of at-grade intersections and private driveways. See an Enlarged Photo here.
