Left - Highway transfer notification sign on Hwy 62 north of Maynooth. These white signs were placed on many downloaded King's Highways in the late 1990s to advise motorists that they are no longer travelling on a provincially-maintained highway. The 50 km section of Hwy 62 from Maynooth to Barry's Bay was turned over to Hastings County and Renfrew County on January 1, 1998.

Left - Papineau Creek Culvert on Hwy 62 between Maynooth and Maple Leaf. This massive concrete barrel arch structure was completed in 1938.
(Photograph taken on August 2, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - The Papineau Creek Culvert is rather inconspicuous from the highway, since it is located at the bottom of a deep fill. Unless you are really looking for this historic structure, it is very easy to miss even though it has a span length (diameter) of 40 feet.

HWY 62 #55 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #56 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Sign marking an old alignment of Hwy 62 between Combermere and Maple Leaf. This is just one of several abandoned and bypassed alignments of Hwy 62 in this area. The route of Hwy 62 was extensively reconstructed in the 1950s and 1960s, so many pieces of the old highway can still be found in the forest.

Right - Former alignment of Hwy 62 near Maple Leaf. This is one of the only old Hwy 62 alignments that is still open to traffic. Many are now fenced off.

HWY 62 #57 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #58 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Former alignment of Hwy 62 near Maple Leaf. Note the superelevated curve in the foreground, which looks strangely out-of-place on a quiet rural road like this. Although it doesn't look like much of a highway anymore, it is very obvious that this road was originally designed to move fast traffic in its day.
(Photograph taken on August 5, 2008  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - A section of the Boulter Road near Maple Leaf was also a former alignment of Hwy 62. Here, the former highway crosses Little Papineau Creek before re-joining the current route of Hwy 62 just north of Maple Leaf. This section of the old highway was bypassed in 1962.

HWY 62 #61 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #62 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Green guide sign on Hwy 62 marking the destinations accessible via Hwy 517. This former Secondary Highway meanders through a particularly empty region of western Renfrew County before terminating abruptly at the Boulter Road in adjacent Hastings County. It is interesting to note that neither of these communities are situated directly on Hwy 517.

HWY 62 #32 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 62 #33 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Former Hwy 62 alignment at Round Lake Centre and Pembroke. The highway was realigned in the late 1960s bypassing this section of the old road.
(Photograph taken on August 2, 2004  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Originally, Hwy 62 ran right along the lakeshore at Round Lake Centre, before the highway was relocated further inland in the 1960s. Beyond the end of the old road, a small section of Hwy 62 pavement still survives as a private driveway, complete with its original painted centreline.

Right - Eastern side of the South Indian River Bridge on Hwy 62 near Alice. The original steel handrail was replaced on this bridge after it was struck and badly damaged during a collision in 2003. This bridge used to look identical to the North Indian River Bridge, which is situated a little further to the north along Hwy 62.
