HWY 60 #16 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 60 #17 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - This superelevated curve on the abandoned Hwy 60 alignment near Golden Lake is the most dramatic that I have ever seen on an Ontario provincial highway. The banked curve was constructed in the late 1930s on the original Hwy 60 alignment between Golden Lake and Lake Dore (now known as Lake Dore Road). Unfortunately, this old alignment is now closed to traffic. Driving along this section of Hwy 60 in the late 1930s and early 1940s certainly would have been an experience!. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 41 #93 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 41 #94 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Guide signs at the Hwy 41 & Hwy 60 Junction in Eganville. Northbound Hwy 41 traffic must turn left at this intersection to continue north towards Pembroke. Hwy 41 briefly shares its route with Hwy 60, which continues west from Eganville towards Barry's Bay, Algonquin Park and ultimately, Huntsville.

(Photograph taken on September 2, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Distance guide sign on eastbound Hwy 60 departing Eganville. Although Hwy 60 ends at the Hwy 17 Junction in Renfrew, distances are provided to Ottawa for eastbound traffic (via Hwy 17 & Hwy 417). Ottawa is the primary destination for most of the traffic entering into the Ottawa Valley. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 60 #148 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 60 #149 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing east along Hwy 60 towards Douglas, about 2 km east of Eganville. This newer highway diversion near Mink Lake bypassed an old alignment of Hwy 60 (seen in the photos above) which had several sharp curves. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 60 #150 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 60 #157 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Approaching Kellys Corner on Hwy 60, facing east towards Douglas. Note the pioneer-era log barns beside the highway at right. Renfrew County has a significant number of historic log barns, many of which date back to the 1860s and 1870s. This particular example shows how early settlers expanded their barns by adding sections onto the structure at each end. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on September 2, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Green guide sign marking the Hwy 60 turn-off to Douglas and Renfrew at Kellys Corner. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 60 #159 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 60 #156 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - At Kellys Corner, eastbound traffic on Hwy 60 turns right towards Douglas and Renfrew via a channelized right-turn ramp. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on September 2, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - View of the channelized right-turn ramp at Kellys Corner. Although this ramp only carries eastbound Hwy 60 traffic today, it was in all likelihood a bidirectional ramp historically. The Department of Highways constructed many small corner diversions such as this one up until the 1960s. Most of these corner diversions were originally intended to carry two-way traffic. In an effort to enhance road safety at these types of junctions, these ramps were converted from two-way to one-way traffic flow in recent decades. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 60 #155 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 60 #151 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing east along Hwy 60 approaching the All-Way Stop signs at Kellys Corner. This type of intersection control is very rare on Ontario's King's Highways. Beyond the intersection, Renfrew County Road 8 continues straight ahead towards Cobden where it connects to Hwy 17. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 60 #160 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 60 #161 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 60 approaching the turn-off at Kellys Corner. Hwy 60 turns left and resumes its route west towards Eganville. Renfrew County Road 9 continues straight ahead at Kellys Corner, where it eventually connects to Hwy 41 at Lake Dore. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on September 2, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - The long eastbound right-turn channelization ramp can be seen joining into Hwy 60 at left. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

(Photograph taken on September 2, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - An older blue-and-white school crossing sign on Hwy 60 approaching Douglas. Blue-and-white school crossing signs such as this example are slowly being phased out and replaced by high-intensity yellow-and-black school crossing signs. This change is being done to make school crossing signs more consistent with the colour pattern of other warning signs used in Ontario. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 60 #168 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 60 #171 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Facing north along Queen Street (Hwy 60) in Douglas. This urban cross section with fully-mountable curbs and parking lanes is a commonly-used Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) design in small communities and villages where there are no roadside drainage ditches. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on September 2, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Facing south along Queen Street (Hwy 60) in Douglas. At the bottom of this hill, Hwy 60 turns left onto Isabella Street and resumes its route east towards Renfrew. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
