Right - Green guide sign on Hwy 11 marking the exit for Hwy 60 in Huntsville. Strangely, the control city on the sign is indicated as "Ottawa", even though most of the traffic using Hwy 60 from Huntsville is bound for Algonquin Park or the Barry's Bay area. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Above - An older King's Highway 60 Junction signpost with "JCT" tab near Huntsville. This type of highway sign assembly is now becoming rather scarce on Ontario highways. The MTO seems to be reducing the use of these "JCT" signposts, and relying solely upon the traditional junction crown assembly with directional tabs and arrows. At first glance, it may seem to be a little redundant to have a junction notification sign such as this approaching a major highway junction, considering that an additional signpost with a full set of junction crowns, directional tabs and arrows usually appears a short distance away, plus an additional assembly at the intersection. However, it is very beneficial for motorists to be notified in advance that they are approaching a highway junction, so that they can prepare to make appropriate lane changes for their desired direction of travel. If the first notification of the approaching junction is the junction crown assembly itself, it might already be too late to pick an appropriate traffic lane before reaching the intersection. In my opinion, the MTO should consider increasing the use of the "JCT" signposts before the junction crown assembly on the approaches to major intersections. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

The route of Hwy 35 was truncated at the Hwy 60 Junction at Dwight in 1966, and the overlapped route of Hwy 35 & Hwy 60 from Dwight to Huntsville was discontinued. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
