Left - Bobcaygeon River Bridges on Hwy 36 south of Bobcaygeon. Structures completed in 1950 & 1951. These structures are the first of several bridges which carry Hwy 36 over the Bobcaygeon River and the Trent-Severn Waterway.

Left - Perry Creek Bridge on Hwy 28 at Burleigh Falls. The Hwy 36 Junction lies immediately north of the Perry Creek Bridge. As a result, the bridge is somewhat wider than what is typically seen on two lane King's Highways, because of the right-turn channelization and acceleration taper from Hwy 36 to southbound Hwy 28 and the left-turn lane from northbound Hwy 28 to Hwy 36. Thus, the bridge deck width becomes progressively wider as one views the structure from the south. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Northern terminus of Hwy 36 at the Hwy 28 Junction at Burleigh Falls. This intersection is actually the relocated northern terminus of Hwy 36. From 1937 until the late 1960s, Hwy 36 ended at an old directional "Y" Junction with Hwy 28 just southwest of this point in Burleigh Falls. When Hwy 28 was reconstructed and relocated onto a new alignment through Burleigh Falls in 1967, Hwy 36 was also relocated so that it met Hwy 28 at this much-improved highway junction.

Left - After traveling almost 75 km through the Kawartha Lakes region, Hwy 36 reaches its northern terminus at the Hwy 28 Junction at Burleigh Falls. Motorists turning right at this junction can return back to Hwy 7 near Peterborough by following Hwy 28 South through Burleigh Falls. Motorists turning left at the junction can follow Hwy 28 North to Bancroft. Hwy 28 is the principal through route through the northern portion of Peterborough County. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Old directional "Y" junction on Old Hwy 28 (Ojibway Drive) at Old Hwy 36 (Spur Road) at Burleigh Falls, facing south towards Peterborough. From 1937 until 1967, Hwy 28 and Hwy 36 met at this unusual intersection. Southbound traffic arriving at Burleigh Falls from Bancroft had the option of taking Hwy 28 South (left fork) to Lakefield and Peterborough or taking Hwy 36 South (right fork) to Bobcaygeon and Lindsay. Today, Ojibway Drive dead-ends about 650 metres ahead, so the old highway alignment no longer carries any through traffic.

HWY 28 #43 - © Cameron Bevers

Above - Former northern terminus of Hwy 36 at Old Hwy 28 in Burleigh Falls. Traces of the south leg of the directional "Y" junction are still visible today, to the right of the hut. The south leg of the "Y" is seldom used anymore, since Ojibway Drive (Old Hwy 28) has been closed to through traffic at the Trent-Severn Waterway since the 1960s. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
