Left - Facing north along Hwy 33 towards the Murray Canal Swing Bridge at Carrying Place. The cable-mounted traffic signal heads are quite unusual, especially considering that this is a permanent traffic signal installation at an opening bridge. Most permanent traffic signals in Ontario are pole-mounted.

HWY 33 #38 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 33 #39 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Narrow pavements such as this were very common on early King's Highways. Most of Ontario's Highways were widened during extensive road reconstruction programs in the 1950s and 1960s. Fortunately, some sections of Ontario highways were bypassed altogether, such as this former section of Hwy 33 near Hillier, which still retains most of its original design characteristics and charm.

HWY 33 #40 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 33 #41 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - This former section of Hwy 33 near Wellington was likely bypassed due to this awkward intersection with limited right-of-way

Right - Hallowell Creek bridge on the Loyalist Parkway (Hwy 33) east of Wellington. Structure completed in 1949.

Right - Close-up of the parapet design of the Hallowell Creek Bridge. The stylish embossed vertical stripes on the concrete stanchions appear on many Ontario bridges built in the 1930s and 1940s.

HWY 33 #46 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 33 #48 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing east towards Bloomfield along the Loyalist Parkway (Hwy 33)
(Photograph taken on May 7, 2006  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - This abandoned Hwy 33 alignment diverges off of the current highway east of Wellington

HWY 33 #47 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 33 #50 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The abandoned highway goes to a former railway crossing location, where the highway once crossed the tracks at a poor angle. A diversion was constructed on Hwy 33 to improve the crossing approaches and allow drivers greater visibility.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 33 towards Warings Corners, west of Picton
(Photograph taken on May 7, 2006  -  © Cameron Bevers)





HWY 33 #54 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 33 #51 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Junction of Hwy 33 and Prince Edward Road 1 at Warings Corners, facing west towards Bloomfield. Traffic between Picton and Belleville often bypasses Bloomfield by using Prince Edward Road 1. In fact, so much traffic uses the Bloomfield cut-off that a right-turn channelization was constructed on Hwy 33 to facilitate turning movements (seen here at right).

Right - Junction of Prince Edward Road 1 and Hwy 33, facing south. Note the other end of the channelization from Hwy 33 at left.

(Photograph taken on May 7, 2006  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Junction of Prince Edward Road 1 and Hwy 33, facing north. Note the green guide sign at right, which correctly indicates the intersecting road as the Loyalist Parkway, but does not indicate the highway's route number.

HWY 33 #49 - © Cameron Bevers

Above - Facing east along the Loyalist Parkway (Hwy 33) towards Picton from Warings Corners. From this point into Picton, Hwy 33 has a four-lane undivided cross section.
