Right - Facing south along Hwy 41 towards Griffith at Tooey's Hill, at the Hwy 132 Junction. Tooey's Hill marks the edge of the Opeongo Mountains, a series of steep-sided hills which stretch from the eastern side of Algonquin Park down towards the Arnprior area. The Opeongo Mountains formed a rather formidable natural barrier along the southern side of the Ottawa Valley, which prohibited railway construction and discouraged settlement into these highlands for the better part of a century. The construction of Hwy 41 across the highlands greatly improved transportation through the area.

Right - Facing south along Hwy 41 towards Tooey's Hill from the Hwy 132 Junction. Hwy 41 crosses the Opeongo Mountains at Tooey's Hill, which is one of the only low points in the highlands south of Barry's Bay. Up until the 1930s, travel into the region beyond the Opeongo Mountains was very difficult. No railways had ever been built through this area due to the rugged terrain and the roads leading into the highlands were only seasonal. After Hwy 41 was designated as a new provincial highway between Kaladar and Eganville in 1937, an aggressive highway improvement program commenced which resulted in Hwy 41 being reconstructed from a seasonal dirt road into a reliable year-round through highway. By 1948, Hwy 41 had been fully paved through the highlands as far south as Denbigh.

Right - Hwy 41 & Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. At this intersection, Hwy 41 turns left to continue north towards Eganville and Pembroke, while Hwy 132 is actually the through route which continues east to Dacre and Renfrew.

Left - Oversized crown signs at the Hwy 41 & Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. The sudden change in Hwy 41's direction at this intersection likely comes as a surprise to many northbound Hwy 41 motorists, who have travelled along the same roadway since Napanee, 150 km to the south.

Left - Southbound Hwy 41 continues beyond the Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. However, to stay on Hwy 41, southbound traffic must turn right. To facilitate this Southbound Hwy 41 movement, a right-turn channel was constructed at this highway junction.
(Photograph taken on August 4, 2008  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Guide signs at the Hwy 41 & Hwy 132 Junction near Dacre. A left turn at this T-intersection will lead motorists to Renfrew via Hwy 132. Although it isn't indicated by any signs, motorists who miss the right-turn channel can still continue south towards Griffith via Hwy 41 by turning right at this T-intersection.

Right - The long road south: From Eganville, Hwy 41 passes through a beautiful but rather sparsely-populated region of Eastern Ontario. The next major town along the highway is Napanee, located roughly 170 km to the south. The Opeongo Mountains can be seen on the horizon, nearly 20 km away. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Distance sign on Hwy 41 south of Eganville. Interestingly, Renfrew is marked on this distance sign, even though Hwy 41 does not form a particularly direct route to the town. Motorists must travel 30 km east from Hwy 41 via Hwy 132 to reach Renfrew.

Right - Guide signs at the Hwy 41 & Hwy 60 Junction in Eganville. Northbound Hwy 41 traffic must turn left at this intersection to continue north towards Pembroke.

Above - Former Hwy 41 alignment (Point Church Drive) approaching Lake Dore north of the Hwy 60 Junction. During the late 1970s, Hwy 41 was relocated onto a brand new alignment east of Lake Dore. Several kilometres of the old, winding Hwy 41 alignment along the shores of Lake Dore were bypassed during this highway improvement project.

HWY 17 #679 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 17 #673 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing north along Hwy 41 at the Hwy 17 Junction in Pembroke. Although Hwy 41 continues as a signed route for an additional 4 km into Downtown Pembroke, the assumed portion of Hwy 41 owned by the Province ends just beyond the Hwy 17 Junction.

(Photograph taken on June 1, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Advance guide signs for the Hwy 41 Junction on Hwy 17 in Pembroke. The right turn onto Northbound Hwy 41 from Westbound Hwy 17 is channelized, which is why the advance arrows are angled upwards and to the right. The turn onto Southbound Hwy 41 from Westbound Hwy 17 is accomplished via a conventional left-turn lane.

Right - Turn-off guide signs for the Hwy 41 Junction on Hwy 17 in Pembroke. With 7 separate signboards and tabs, this is arguably one of the most complicated sign assemblies seen anywhere on the provincial highway network.

HWY 17 #676 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 17 #677 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing south along Hwy 41 towards the Hwy 17 Junction in Pembroke. Note the right-turn channelizations on the north side of the intersection.
(Photograph taken on June 1, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Unlike many channelized right-turn lanes built in Ontario, there was no curb and gutter constructed at the Hwy 17 & Hwy 41 Junction. Storm water drainage is accommodated through normal pavement crossfall and drainage swales.

HWY 17 #678 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 17 #681 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing south along Hwy 41 at the Hwy 17 Junction. The traffic signals at this intersection operate on a simple two-phase timing plan, with no advance protected left-turn arrows.
(Photograph taken on June 1, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Facing east along Hwy 17 towards the Hwy 41 Junction in Pembroke. Note the amber warning beacons at right, which begin to flash when the traffic signal ahead is red. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Overview of the Hwy 17 & Hwy 41 Junction in Pembroke. Ever since the downloading of Hwy 62 & Hwy 148 west of Pembroke, the Hwy 41 Junction is the first King's Highway encountered along Hwy 17 east of the North Bay area, located 200 km to the west.

(Photograph taken on June 1, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Facing north along Hwy 41 towards Pembroke from the Hwy 17 Junction. Note the large Irving Gas Station on the right-hand side of the highway. The Irving brand is somewhat of an anomaly in Ontario, where there are only a handful of gas stations operated by Irving Oil. However, these Irving Gas Stations are ubiquitous in Eastern Canada and New England, where the company operates hundreds of locations. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 41 #123 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 41 #124 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Signs marking the Hwy 41 & Hwy 148 Junction in Downtown Pembroke. Up until 1997, Hwy 148 continued west through Downtown Pembroke to join with Hwy 17 & Hwy 62 south of Petawawa. Since 1997, the signed routes of Hwy 41 and Hwy 148 share a common terminus in Downtown Pembroke.
(Photograph taken on June 4, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Approaching the northern terminus of Hwy 41 in Downtown Pembroke. Although Hwy 41 is fully signed through Pembroke, the section of Hwy 41 lying north of the Hwy 17 Junction is actually maintained by the municipality.

HWY 41 #125 - © Cameron Bevers

Above - Sign marking the end of Hwy 41 in Downtown Pembroke. The diminutive 6 km route of Hwy 148 begins at the Hwy 41 Junction. Like Hwy 41, the section of Hwy 148 lying within Pembroke's City Limits is maintained by the municipality.
