Left - Facing north along Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 from the Taunton Road Interchange in Orono. Between Newcastle and Enterprise Hill, Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 is a type of four-lane divided highway known as a "RIRO" (Right-in, Right-out) expressway. This type of highway design has some freeway characteristics, such as grade-separated interchanges and a centre median barrier. However, a RIRO expressway differs from the standard freeway because direct access is provided to adjacent properties along the highway. Left turns from the highway are not possible due to the centre median barrier, so only right turns are permitted for property access. Motorists wishing to turn left must proceed to the next interchange and return in the opposite direction and then turn right. Note the restaurant and gas station on the right-hand side of the highway, which is accessible from northbound Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 only. Southbound traffic cannot turn left into this gas station because of the concrete centre median barrier. Traffic turning out of any entrance along a RIRO expressway is only permitted to turn right. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - The reverse curve sign in the foreground along northbound Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 provides present day evidence of a 1940s-era highway diversion, which extended north from Kirby. Up until the late 1940s, Hwy 35 ended at a T-intersection in the centre of Kirby. The highway briefly turned to the right (east) before resuming its route north towards Lindsay at a second nearby T-intersection. A highway diversion was completed in 1948, which eliminated these two closely-spaced intersections through Kirby and provided a more efficient through route for traffic using Hwy 35. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - View of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 through Kirby, facing north. The highway has always followed the main street through the small community of Kirby, but it has been realigned and expanded over the years as traffic volumes grew. The original two-lane route of Hwy 35 established in 1938 was expanded to four lanes in the mid-1980s. Speed change lanes were also built for Clarke Concession 7 & Durham Road 9, which intersect with Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 in the centre of the community. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Facing west at the end of Durham Road 9 at Kirby. Due to the ramp configuration here, westbound traffic reaching Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 can only proceed north towards Lindsay. Toronto-bound traffic must use the nearby Kirby Overpass to reach the on-ramp to southbound Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 on the opposite side of the expressway. At one time, Hwy 35 followed a short section of today's Durham Road 9 at Kirby, until a new diversion was built in the late 1940s along the northern approach to Kirby. Up until 1948, the route of Hwy 35 turned left at this point as it continued south towards Orono and Newcastle. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Bypassed route of Hwy 35 at Kirby, facing south towards Durham Road 9. After being bypassed by a new highway diversion in 1948, jurisdiction over this former section of Hwy 35 was transferred from the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) to Clarke Township in January, 1950. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 35 #226 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 35 #283 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - This former section of Hwy 35 (Kirby School Road) was one of many portions of the original 1938 highway route left behind as a result of highway improvements carried out along this corridor in the 1940s and 1950s. Several miles of the old 1938 highway between Newcastle and Enterprise Hill were either bypassed or abandoned altogether. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing south along Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 towards Orono from the Clarke Concession Road 8 Overpass. The curve seen here was another highway diversion built in 1948 to eliminate an offset intersection which once existed at Hwy 35 and Clarke Concession Road 8. Several diversions were constructed along Hwy 35 between Orono and Enterprise Hill during the late 1940s. This diversion north of Kirby was about 1/2 mile in length and was expanded from two lanes to a four-lane expressway in the mid-1980s. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 from Clarke Concession Road 8. The last of the highway commercial strips along Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 begins here and continues northerly to the base of Enterprise Hill. Before the highway diversion was built here in the 1940s, Hwy 35 passed directly across the route of the current expressway along Clarke Concession Road 8. Once the expressway upgrades were completed in the 1980s, the eastern leg of Old Hwy 35 was obliterated. The western leg of Old Hwy 35 now serves as the ramp connections to and from southbound Hwy 35 & Hwy 115. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on August 25, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - View of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 facing south towards Clarke Concession Road 8. The original 1938 route of Hwy 35 did not curve to the right as it does today. Before the curved highway diversion at Clarke Concession Road 8 was completed in 1948, Hwy 35 continued straight ahead to Clarke Concession Road 8, where it ended at a T-intersection. Southbound Hwy 35 traffic then had to turn right and follow Clarke Concession Road 8 before resuming south along Hwy 35 towards Orono about 1/4 mile to the west. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 between Clarke Concession Road 8 and Enterprise Hill. When the median barrier was constructed along the highway in the 1980s, a chain-link fence was also installed on top of the barrier in an effort to discourage pedestrians from crossing the highway within this commercial strip area. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Approaching Enterprise Hill on Hwy 35 & Hwy 115, facing north. Up until the 1950s, Hwy 35 curved sharply to the left at the base of Enterprise Hill where the pavement came to an end. From this point northerly to Lindsay, Hwy 35 was a gravel-surfaced highway until well into the 1950s. The old route of Hwy 35 up Enterprise Hill had a steep, winding alignment. The current highway's route up Enterprise Hill was completed during a highway improvement project in 1954, initially as a two-lane undivided highway. The old 1938 route of Hwy 35 was abandoned altogether once the new highway's grade opened to traffic in 1954. The last of the highway commercial strips along the expressway portion of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 comes to an end just south of Enterprise Hill. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - While motorists today sail up Enterprise Hill on the current expressway portion of Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 in the blink of an eye, travel along the highway wasn't always that easy. In fact, motorists driving this highway prior to 1954 would have had a very different experience. The original 1938 route of Hwy 35 struggled up this steep hill on a narrow, winding gravel highway alignment. This photo shows a section of the abandoned 1938 highway, which early Ontario motorists would have been more familiar with - and likely dreaded. In preparation for the arrival of the new route of Hwy 115 from Peterborough, the alignment of Hwy 35 was relocated significantly at Enterprise Hill in the early 1950s and the severity of the grade greatly reduced. The removal of the steep grade at Enterprise Hill was a significant step in the reconstruction of Hwy 35 between Newcastle and Lindsay. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Abandoned section of Hwy 35 at Enterprise Hill, facing south towards Newcastle. About 1 km of the old highway was abandoned in 1954, when a much-improved highway alignment was constructed through a new earth cut up Enterprise Hill. The abandoned highway curve shown here is the same curve seen off to the right in this Historical 1953 Photo, which also shows the new highway under construction at left about a year prior to its 1954 opening. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

After sharing a concurrent overlapped route for about 21 km, Hwy 35 & Hwy 115 split apart at Enterprise Hill, with Hwy 35 continuing north towards Lindsay, while Hwy 115 turns northeasterly towards Peterborough. As this sign indicates, traffic bound for Lindsay via Hwy 35 must exit from the expressway ahead. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing north along Hwy 115 towards Peterborough from the Enterprise Hill Interchange. The exit ramp to northbound Hwy 35 to Lindsay can be seen at right, which splits off from northbound Hwy 115 as an inner loop ramp. The ramps at the Enterprise Hill Interchange are in a "Trumpet-B" configuration. This interchange marks a key decision point in Central Ontario's highway network. Traffic continuing north along Hwy 115 to Peterborough can then continue east to Ottawa via Hwy 7, or use Hwy 28 north to Bancroft. Traffic exiting to Hwy 35 can continue north towards Lindsay and the Kawartha Lakes region. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

The route of Hwy 35 seen here was actually a diversion of the highway constructed in 1986-1987. It was actually the second diversion of Hwy 35 built on the northern approach to Enterprise Hill since the highway was first established in 1938. A previous diversion Hwy 35 located a short distance to the west of the Enterprise Hill Interchange was completed in 1954. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
