Right - The former Hwy 47 alignment between Goodwood and Uxbridge joins up with the relocated Hwy 47 at the crossroads. Up until 1970, motorists wishing to proceed east along Hwy 47 towards Uxbridge had to turn left at the intersection. The Goodwood Diversion eliminated this jog in the highway alignment.
