Left - Approaching the Hwy 36 Junction on Hwy 7, facing east towards Peterborough. The route of Hwy 36 begins at Hwy 7 just east of Lindsay and heads northeasterly towards Bobcaygeon, before turning east towards Hwy 28 at Burleigh Falls. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing east along Hwy 7 at the Hwy 36 Junction east of Lindsay. Prior to the downloading of Hwy 36 in 1998, this was the only provincial highway junction along Hwy 7 between Lindsay and Peterborough's Hwy 7B Junction at Fowlers Corners.

Right - A right-turn channelization was constructed at the Hwy 7 & Hwy 36 Junction to serve the predominant right-turn movement coming southbound on Hwy 36 from Bobcaygeon and the Kawartha Lakes Cottage Country.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 36 towards Bobcaygeon from the Hwy 7 Junction east of Lindsay. The entire 73 km route of Hwy 36 was transferred from the province to the Counties of Victoria and Peterborough in the late 1990s. Since 1998, Hwy 36 has been under municipal jurisdiction. After Victoria County was incorporated as the City of Kawartha Lakes in 2001, the section of Hwy 36 within Victoria County was renamed Kawartha Lakes Road 36.

Left - Southern terminus of Hwy 36 at the Hwy 7 Junction east of Lindsay. Most traffic on southbound Hwy 36 turns right at this junction, so a right-turn channelization was constructed to serve this predominant movement. Up until the late 1950s, Hwy 36 ended in Downtown Lindsay at the corner of Kent Street and Lindsay Street. The completion of the Lindsay Bypass in 1958 resulted in the relocation of Hwy 36 onto a new alignment east of town, and consequently, a relocated southern terminus at Hwy 7.

Right - Turn-off green guide sign for the Hwy 7 Junction on southbound Hwy 36 east of Lindsay. The predominant south-to-west movement is shown on the sign with an angled right arrow to indicate that it is a channelized right-turn ramp.

Left - Flowerpot route marker indicating the end of Kawartha Lakes Road 36 (Former Hwy 36) at the Hwy 7 Junction east of Lindsay. In all likelihood, the "Hwy 36 Ends" sign was placed above the two Hwy 7 crowns when this highway was still under provincial control, but was moved to its current location after the highway was downloaded to the municipality in 1998.

Right - Distance sign on northbound Hwy 36 just north of the Hwy 7 Junction near Lindsay. Hwy 36 follows a generally northeasterly route towards Burleigh Falls, via Bobcaygeon. Distances to Bancroft are also provided along Hwy 36, since the highway offered a comparable route between Lindsay and Bancroft to the better-known Hwy 7 and Hwy 28 route.

Left - Facing north along Hwy 36 towards Bobcaygeon, north of the Hwy 7 Junction. This section of Hwy 36 is comparatively new. When the route of Hwy 36 was first established in 1931, the route began in Downtown Lindsay at the intersection of Lindsay Street and Kent Street (Hwy 7). The awkward route of Hwy 36 through Downtown Lindsay was very difficult for trucks to navigate. As part of the Lindsay Bypass construction in the late 1950s, Hwy 36 was relocated onto a new alignment along the eastern side of Lindsay. As a result, nearly 1 km of Hwy 36 through Lindsay was renumbered as Hwy 36B. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing north from the top of the East Lindsay Bypass Railway Overhead on Hwy 36. At left, an old road alignment leads to the site of a former at-grade railway crossing. The route of Hwy 36 was constructed off of alignment, presumably to allow access to remain for a number of properties located on the western side of the new East Lindsay Bypass. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - The new alignment of Hwy 36 north of the railway overhead is quite evident in this photo. At left, the old road alignment is still in use as local service road, for access to driveways on the western side of the highway. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing south along Hwy 36 towards the East Lindsay Bypass Railway Overhead. Hwy 36 comes to an end at Hwy 7 about 2 km to the south. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
