Left - An abandoned alignment of Hwy 27 south of Elmvale. This old Hwy 27 alignment was the first abandoned road that I ever took notice of as a child, and I was always fascinated by it. Years ago, my family would drive past this point almost every summer weekend on our way up to Midland, and I always seemed to make a special point of looking at the old highway as we drove by on the new road. I often wondered why the old road was abandoned in the first place, and how long it had been since it last carried traffic. This old Hwy 27 alignment was one of the main reasons why I became so interested in the history of Ontario's highways. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Destination guide sign on northbound Hwy 27 approaching the Hwy 92 Junction in Elmvale. It is interesting to note that the destination control city on this sign for Hwy 27 is Penetanguishene, reflecting the highway's historical northern terminus. In 1982, the northern leg of Hwy 27 from Waverley to Penetanguishene was renumbered as Hwy 93. The route of Hwy 27 was then truncated at the Hwy 93 Junction in Waverley. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Beginning of Hwy 92 at the Hwy 27 Junction in Elmvale, facing west towards Wasaga Beach. The route of Hwy 92 was first established in 1936, in an effort to improve provincial highway access to the popular summer resort town of Wasaga Beach. The route of Hwy 92 extends from Elmvale westerly to Wasaga Beach, where it connects with Hwy 26. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Junction assembly at the intersection of Hwy 27 & Hwy 92 in Elmvale. Both of these highways were transferred to Simcoe County during the mass provincial highway downloading spree which took place in 1997-1998. During that time, thousands of kilometres of provincial highways which were deemed to serve primarily "local purposes" were handed over to municipalities as a provincial cost-cutting measure. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Eastern terminus of Hwy 92 at the Hwy 27 Junction in Elmvale. These two highways have met at this intersection since 1936. As a result of the provincial highway downloading of the 1990s, Simcoe County now maintains jurisdiction over both Hwy 27 and Hwy 92. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing south along Hwy 93 towards the Hwy 27 Junction in Waverley. From this point, traffic heading south to Barrie can either follow Hwy 93 via Hillsdale and Orr Lake to reach Hwy 400, or follow Hwy 27 via Elmvale and Midhurst. Both routes are about the same distance to Barrie. See an Enlarged Photo here.
