Present Day King's Highway 30 Photographs

Left - Overlooking the Hwy 401 & Hwy 30 Interchange north of Brighton. The historic Danforth Road (now Telephone Road) crosses the path of Hwy 401 at this point. During the construction of Hwy 401, this road was realigned to meet up with Hwy 30 so that only one grade separation was required at the new freeway. Telephone Road continues on the hill beyond the Hwy 401 & Hwy 30 Interchange. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Two of the ramps connecting to Hwy 30 from Hwy 401 were built on the original Danforth Road alignment. This old 19th century stage coach road was built from Toronto (York) to Kingston between 1799 and 1802 under the direction of land surveyor Asa Danforth. This photo provides an interesting contrast between one of Ontario's oldest roads and one of its newest. From this perspective, an observer can appreciate the vast importance that Ontario's roads have had on its development. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing east towards the Hwy 30 Overpass on Hwy 401 from Telephone Road. This curve on Hwy 401 is one of the sharpest curves on the entire highway. However, the highway's rather abrupt horizontal geometry makes for a particularly photogenic scene. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - The high-level Trent River Bridge was completed in 1968. This impressive new bridge effectively bypassed a section of Hwy 30 that went through the community of Trent River. Trent River was home to an old swing bridge over the Trent-Severn Waterway and a one-lane truss bridge that was built in 1912. See an Enlarged Photo here.

(Photograph taken on July 25, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - The Wight's Island Bridge connects to the northern shore of the Trent River. Until the late 1960s, Hwy 30 went across Wight's Island and crossed to the south shore of the Trent River via an old swing bridge. The old swing bridge was removed once the high-level bridge was opened to traffic in 1968. See an Enlarged Photo here.
