Right - Hwy 58 joins Hwy 3 on the western side of Port Colborne. Eastbound motorists on Hwy 3 can turn left and use Hwy 58 if they wish to head north towards Welland and St. Catharines. By continuing straight through at this junction, motorists will pass through Port Colborne and ultimately arrive in Fort Erie.

Right - Sign marking the end of Hwy 58 at the Hwy 3 Junction in Port Colborne. This is not the original southern terminus of Hwy 58. Between 1935 and 1958, Hwy 58 connected Welland to Port Colborne via Dain City. Hwy 58 originally ended at the Hwy 3 Junction immediately east of the Welland Canal Bridge in Port Colborne. During 1958, Hwy 58 was rerouted along the new West Side Highway between Welland and Port Colborne. The old route of Hwy 58 via Dain City is no longer continuous, since the former highway alignment was severed by the relocated Welland Canal in the early 1970s.

Left - Dual King's Highway 3 and Niagara Regional Road 3 markers in Port Colborne on West Side Road. Most sections of Hwy 3 running through Port Colborne have actually been administered at the municipal level since the 1950s. There are still several references to Hwy 3 within Port Colborne, placed to guide motorists to the provincially-owned legs of the highway lying to the east and west of the urbanized section of the city. Provincial ownership of Hwy 3 ceases at Hwy 140 at the eastern side of Port Colborne and resumes again at the Port Colborne-Wainfleet Boundary west of the Hwy 58 Junction.

Left - Facing north along Hwy 58 at the CP Railway Overhead south of Welland. The Hwy 58A Junction lies just beyond the structure.

Right - Western side of the CP Railway Overhead on Hwy 58 south of Welland. This structure was built in 1971 as part of the St. Lawrence Seaway's project to relocate a section of the Welland Canal. Since this was not an MTO-designed bridge, it features several unique design elements, the most obvious of which are the very unusual inverted V-shaped piers.

HWY 58 #7 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 58 #3 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Eastern side of the CP Railway Overhead on Hwy 58 south of Welland. The structure crosses the approach to the Townline Tunnel, a combined road and highway tunnel which passes below the Welland Canal about 3 km to the east of Hwy 58. In order to pass below the Welland Canal at an acceptable longitudinal grade, the railway lines were constructed through a massive earth cut which commences just west of Hwy 58.

Right - Guide signs marking the Hwy 58A Junction on Hwy 58 in Welland. This intersection marks the northern terminus of the south leg of Hwy 58. Up until the late 1990s, the south leg of Hwy 58 was connected to the north leg of Hwy 58. The section of Hwy 58 that passed through Welland was a connecting link that was signed along Prince Charles Drive, Thorold Road and Niagara Street. However, the connecting link agreement between MTO and the City of Welland was repealed in 1997 and references to Hwy 58 through the city were subsequently removed. The former route of Hwy 58 along Prince Charles Drive is now signed as Niagara Road 54.

Left - A lone "To 140" trailblazer has been placed on Northbound Hwy 58 at the Hwy 58A Junction, presumably to guide through traffic on Hwy 58 away from Downtown Welland. The route of former Hwy 58 through Welland is rather convoluted.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 58A from the Hwy 58 Junction. Hwy 58A forms a bypass around the south side of Welland. Hwy 58A begins at this intersection and continues east for 5 km, where it joins with Hwy 140.
