NEW Left - Distance guide sign on eastbound Hwy 562 marking the distance to Earlton. Although Earlton is located on Hwy 11 a short distance north of Hwy 562, it is actually a much larger town than Thornloe which lies ahead of Hwy 562. Earlton can easily be reached via Hwy 571, which intersects Hwy 562 about 8 km ahead. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Hwy 571 Junction on Hwy 562 south of Earlton, facing west. For a very brief period in 1937-1938, Hwy 11 passed through this junction. The new Thornloe Diversion was completed in 1938, which bypassed the original Hwy 11 route between Thornloe and Earlton, including this intersection. An old corner diversion used to exist at right which carried Hwy 11 traffic north towards Earlton. This corner diversion has since been closed to traffic and graded out. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 562 #4 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 562 #5 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing east along Hwy 562 towards Thornloe from the Hwy 571 Junction. Note the slight curve in the road, which once carried Hwy 11 traffic into the corner diversion. The corner diversion was subsequently closed to traffic and graded out, thereby restoring Hwy 562 as the through highway at the intersection. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing north along Hwy 571 towards Earlton from the Hwy 562 Junction. Note the slight curve in the highway, which is among the last remnants of a historical corner diversion at this location. The entire route of Hwy 571 between the Hwy 562 Junction and Earlton served as the Ferguson Highway (Hwy 11) until 1938. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Approaching the southern terminus of Hwy 571 at the Hwy 562 Junction. Traces of the historical curve diversion can still be seen at left, where a line of shrubs follows the arc of the old highway alignment leading to Hwy 562. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 562 #10 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 11 #1031 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing east along Hwy 562 towards Thornloe, east of the Hwy 571 Junction. This section of Hwy 562 was once part of the Ferguson Highway (Hwy 11) up until 1938, when it was bypassed by the Thornloe Diversion. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

(Photograph taken on August 3, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Guide sign for Hwy 562 on northbound Hwy 11 between New Liskeard and Earlton. Significant portions of the route of Hwy 562 were once part of the Ferguson Highway. In fact, the section of Hwy 562 through Thornloe was briefly part of Hwy 11 immediately following the Department of Highways' assumption of the Ferguson Highway in 1937. See an Enlarged Photo here.

(Photograph taken on August 3, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Approaching the Hwy 562 Junction on northbound Hwy 11 between New Liskeard and Earlton. The construction of the Thornloe Diversion in the late 1930s ultimately created an awkward six-legged intersection at this point. The route of Hwy 562 is a soft left turn, while the south leg of Garden Road (the Old Ferguson Highway) is a hard left turn. The two right hand turns are both lightly-travelled township roads. The section of the Old Ferguson Highway via Garden Road South and Development Road was transferred from the jurisdiction of the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) to the Township of Harley in 1941, shortly after the completion of the Thornloe Diversion on Hwy 11. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Guide signs on southbound Hwy 11 showing the township road legs at the awkward six-legged intersection east of Thornloe. Only Greenwood Bridge Road and the north leg of Garden Road have not been provincial highways at one time or another. Garden Road South was the original route of the Ferguson Highway (Hwy 11) prior to being bypassed in 1938, while the two Hwy 11 legs forming the Thornloe Diversion and the leg forming Hwy 562 are still active provincial highways today. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 11 #1038 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 11 #1039 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Approaching the eastern terminus of Hwy 562 at the six-legged intersection east of Thornloe. Prior to the completion of the Thornloe Diversion in 1938, Hwy 11 turned right at this intersection onto Garden Road South just beyond the gas station. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on August 3, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Facing west along Hwy 562 towards Thornloe from the Hwy 11 Junction. This section of Hwy 562 briefly served as the route for Hwy 11 in 1937 and 1938, after the Ferguson Highway was assumed by the DHO as a King's Highway. When the Thornloe Diversion was completed in 1938, the route of Hwy 11 bypassed the Village of Thornloe altogether. See an Enlarged Photo here.
