Right - Facing east at the Hwy 33 & Hwy 62 Junction in Bloomfield. Motorists who turn left here can follow Hwy 62 north to Belleville. Hwy 33 turns right at this junction and continues east towards Picton. This stop-controlled intersection has an unusual configuration with separated left and right turn lanes. This lane arrangement is typically only used at signalized or all-way stop controlled intersections. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Junction assembly at the Hwy 33 & Hwy 62 Junction in Bloomfield. Although the section of Hwy 33 lying west of Bloomfield was transferred to Prince Edward County in the 1990s, the route of Hwy 33 lying to the east of Bloomfield was retained in the provincial highway system. The highway from Belleville to Picton has been a provincial highway since 1921. Originally, the route was known as Hwy 14, although in later years the eastern and northern parts of the route were renumbered as Hwy 33 and Hwy 62, respectively. See an Enlarged Photo here.

(Photograph taken on April 9, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - This township road (Pierce Road) north of Bloomfield was once part of Hwy 14. In 1961-1962, a diversion was constructed for Hwy 14 well to the east in order to bypass a sharp horizontal curve on the original highway's route. The section of Hwy 14 from Bloomfield to Foxboro was renumbered as Hwy 62 during the 1980s. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 62 #20 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #16 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - An overgrown concrete culvert lying in a field indicates a former highway alignment north of Bloomfield. The entire route of Hwy 14 was reconstructed through Prince Edward County in the early 1960s, in an effort to improve the highway's geometry. As a result, there are several abandoned and bypassed sections of the highway in this area. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on April 9, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Pearsall Creek Culvert on Hwy 62, located about 7 km north of Bloomfield. This culvert is rather unique, because the highway was actually realigned and the road's vertical profile raised directly on top of the old culvert. The culvert was extended and reconstructed as part of a highway improvement project carried out in 1962. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on April 9, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)





HWY 62 #17 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #15 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The Pearsall Creek Culvert was extended in 1962 on the western side to allow for the construction of a revised alignment of Hwy 14 (later Hwy 62). The bridge has only one steel handrail on the newer western side. The eastern side of the culvert is protected by steel beam guide rail. The structure definitely looks very odd from the roadway level! See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Southern approach to the former Hwy 14 alignment at the community of Mountain View. A fairly substantial relocation of Hwy 14 took place here in 1960. This section of the former highway is now a private driveway. Some parts of the old highway through the community of Mountain View are still open to public travel. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on July 26, 2003  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Facing north along an abandoned section of the former Hwy 14 alignment at Mountain View. Roughly 1 km of Old Hwy 14 through Mountain View was bypassed. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 62 #25 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #23 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The old alignment of Hwy 14 at Mountain View had a steep grade, which was bypassed by an much-improved highway alignment in 1960. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing south along the abandoned highway alignment at Mountain View. The forest is slowly reclaiming the old highway's route. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Abandoned alignment of Hwy 14 approaching Mountain View. On the western side of Hwy 62, parts of the old highway's route are still public roadways through the community of Mountain View (Cannery Road and Union Road). However, the old curve diversion seen here serves as a private driveway. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - View of the Norris Whitney Bridge on Hwy 62, facing north towards Belleville from the southern end of the bridge. This new high-level structure was completed in 1982. The Norris Whitney Bridge replaced an opening bridge located on a causeway between Rossmore and Belleville. See an Enlarged Photo here.
(Photograph taken on April 9, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - The old Belleville Bay Bridge was constructed by the Department of Public Highways of Ontario (DPHO) between 1927 and 1931. The crossing consisted of multiple steel truss spans and a long causeway, the remnants of which can be seen in the background. The bridge and causeway structure replaced an 18-span truss bridge that was built in 1890. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Western side of the Norris Whitney Bridge on Hwy 62, facing north towards Belleville. Construction of the new bridge began in 1980, and took almost 3 years to complete. The high-level bridge is 881 metres (2,890 feet) in length, and has a vertical clearance over the marine navigation channel of 23 metres (75 feet). See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - This interesting internally-illuminated overhead sign on northbound Pinnacle Street (Hwy 62) guides traffic north towards highways leading out of Belleville. This sign was a municipal installation, as the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) does not use internally-illuminated signs such as this to mark provincial highways. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Facing north along Station Street (Hwy 37) from Pinnacle Street (Hwy 62). The route of Hwy 37 extends north from Belleville and connects with Hwy 7 near Actinolite. In 1932, Hwy 37 was established as a new King's Highway which connected Belleville to the new Perth-Madoc Highway (Hwy 7), which was nearing completion at the time. Provincial jurisdiction over Hwy 37 begins at the Hwy 401 Interchange, located about 3 km to the north. The balance of Hwy 37 lying between the Hwy 62 Junction and the Hwy 401 Interchange is under the jurisdiction of the City of Belleville. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Southern terminus of Hwy 37 at Pinnacle Street (Hwy 62) in Downtown Belleville. When Hwy 37 was first established in 1932, the highway continued south for one more block to connect with Hwy 14 (the historical predecessor of Hwy 62) at Front Street. The route of Hwy 14 (now Hwy 62) was rerouted several times through Downtown Belleville over the years. See an Enlarged Photo here.
