Historical King's Highway 54 Photographs


HWY 403 #291

Above - Aerial view of the eastern end of the Brantford Bypass (Hwy 403) at Cainsville in 1978. Hwy 403 ended at this signalized intersection at the Hwy 2 & Hwy 53 Junction for over 30 years. Until 1997, all eastbound traffic on Hwy 403 had to turn left onto Hwy 2 & Hwy 53 in order to continue east towards Hamilton. By the 1990s, this congested left turn movement had overwhelmed the capacity of the traffic signal, which resulted in long queues on Hwy 403 which often extended more than a kilometre back from the intersection at peak times. The completion of Hwy 403 between Brantford and Ancaster in 1997 bypassed Hwy 2 & Hwy 53, thus removing one of the most severe traffic bottlenecks in the province. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1978.

Left - Grand River Bridge on Hwy 6 (Caledonia Bypass). This simple but remarkably impressive eight-span continuous concrete girder structure also acts as a grade separation between the Caledonia Bypass and Hwy 54. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - There is no direct access from Hwy 6 to Hwy 54 at the Grand River Bridge in Caledonia. There was little need to provide an interchange at this location when the Caledonia Bypass was built in the early 1980s, since Hwy 54 was (and still is) lightly used. Traffic must use municipal roads (Greens Road and Mines Road) to access Hwy 54 from Hwy 6, or use Argyle Street (Old Hwy 6) through Caledonia.
