Left - Green directional sign at the Hwy 35 and Hwy 118 Junction at Carnarvon. Even though this is relatively minor highway junction, it is exceptionally well-signed. There are major King's Highway junctions in Ontario that exhibit far simpler junction signs, such as the junction of Hwy 10 and Hwy 89 near Shelburne, which is merely marked with square white junction signs. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 118 towards Bracebridge from the Hwy 35 Junction at Carnarvon. The Hwy 118 link between Carnarvon and Bracebridge is a relatively new King's Highway route. Until 1981, there was no direct provincial highway link between these two towns. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 118 towards the Hwy 35 Junction at Carnarvon. The traffic signals at Carnarvon operate in an "actuated" mode. The traffic signals display a continuous green indication for Hwy 35 traffic, except when a vehicle approaches the intersection along Hwy 118, or a pedestrian activates the push button. Note the large white sign at the stop bar directing traffic to "Stop here on red signal". The vehicle loop detectors that are embedded in the pavement will detect the presence of a waiting vehicle, and put in a call to the traffic signal control box to change the intersection right-of-way. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 35 #54 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 35 #55 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing north along Hwy 35 at the Beech River Bridge. The structure was under rehabilitation when this photo was taken. Traffic on Hwy 35 was reduced to one lane, with temporary traffic signals in place to alternate the flow of traffic across the bridge. By rehabilitating only one half of the bridge at a time, it was possible to maintain traffic flow and avoid lengthy detours for Hwy 35 traffic. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Boshkung Lake Rock Cut on Hwy 35, facing north towards Dorset. This impressive rock cut was excavated in the 1960s during the reconstruction of Hwy 35. The original highway followed the lakeshore. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 35 #145 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 35 #144 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - View from the top of the Boshkung Lake Rock Cut on Hwy 35, facing south towards Carnarvon. This large rock cut was excavated in order to straighten out the original 1937 highway alignment, which curved its way along the shoreline of Boshkung Lake. When Ontario's King's Highways were first extended into Northern and Central Ontario in the 1930s, the construction of large rock cuts such as this one were avoided wherever possible, as a matter of economy. However, as the highways were steadily improved in the 1950s and 1960s, sections of new highway were built right through rock outcrops, as was the case here. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing north along Hwy 35 towards Dorset from the Boshkung Lake Rock Cut. Traces of the original 1937 highway alignment can be seen along the shoreline. Note the curve in the old highway alignment immediately to the left of the approaching car. This curve is the same one depicted in this Historical 1942 Photo, taken just a few years after this section of Hwy 35 was established. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 35 #146 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 35 #147 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Boshkung Lake Rock Cut on Hwy 35 between Carnarvon and Dorset. The amount of rock removed from this rock cut was so substantial, that it provided enough fill material to level out almost 500 metres of the highway lying immediately to the north. The resulting fill can be seen in the photo at right. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on September 19, 2008  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - The original 1937 route of Hwy 35 lies abandoned along the Boshkung Lake shoreline. The massive fill created during the construction of the current Hwy 35 route in the 1960s can be seen at right. Note the truck on Hwy 35 for scale. Most of the fill material used here was excavated from the nearby Boshkung Lake Rock Cut. The fill section resulted in a greatly improved vertical alignment, allowing for more passing zones to be introduced along Hwy 35. It would have been very difficult, if not impossible, to overtake slow vehicles on the original Hwy 35 alignment due to the limited visibility and short tangent sections. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing north across the old Buttermilk Falls Bridge. This old concrete Department of Northern Development Bridge was likely constructed in the late 1920s. Given the crooked alignment of the old highway bridge, it's actually quite shocking that this bridge still carried Hwy 35 traffic right up until the early 1970s. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
