Left - Older "angled" exit sign for Hwy 62 South on Eastbound Hwy 401. These angled turn-off signs were used extensively on Ontario freeways during the 1970s. The angled freeway signs were gradually phased out and replaced with rectangular signs beginning in the 1980s. In my opinion, these angled turn-off signs were an excellent idea. Their unique shape helped drivers to immediately differentiate turn-off signs from all other rectangular-shaped ground-mounted guide signs on the freeway, even at a considerable distance. These angled signs were particularly useful at "Parclo-B" and full cloverleaf interchanges, where there is more than one exit ramp off of the freeway. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - The Belleville Cloverleaf at Hwy 401 & Hwy 62 is one of only two full eight-ramp cloverleaf interchanges left on Ontario's 400-Series Highways. This once-common interchange design has been almost completely supplanted by partial cloverleaf interchanges of various configurations over the past 30 years. Cloverleaf interchanges tend to operate poorly at highly congested interchanges, due to the short weaving space between the opposing loop ramps. However, the Hwy 62 Cloverleaf operates surprisingly well since the traffic volumes here are relatively light. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 401 from the Hwy 62 Overpass in Belleville. Almost immediately adjacent to the Hwy 62 Interchange is an interchange for Hwy 37. When the Belleville Bypass was built in the 1950s, both the Hwy 62 and Hwy 37 Interchanges were full eight-ramp cloverleaf interchanges. This led to problems in traffic operations and signing, since the two cloverleaf interchanges were only 700 metres apart. In the early 1990s, the adjacent Hwy 37 Interchange was reconfigured so that the cloverleaf ramps on the western side of the interchange were removed. This ramp reconfiguration increased the space between the two interchanges on Hwy 401. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Bridge-mounted exit sign for the Hwy 62 North ramp on Eastbound Hwy 401. Note that the route of Former Hwy 14 is trailblazed from this interchange via Hwy 62 North. Until the early 1980s, the section of Hwy 62 through Belleville was known as Hwy 14. In an effort to simplify route numbering in the area, the Belleville section of Hwy 14 was renumbered as Hwy 62 in 1983. Since Hwy 14 no longer connected to Hwy 401 directly, the route of Hwy 14 was trailblazed along Hwy 62 to guide motorists to the beginning of the highway in Foxboro, located 8 km to the north. After Hwy 14 was downloaded in 1997, the old King's Highway crown was overlayed with a County Road 14 flowerpot marker.

HWY 401 #1084 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 401 #1070 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Bi-directional freeway ramp at the Hwy 401 & Hwy 62 Interchange in Belleville. This ramp carries two-way traffic from both Eastbound Hwy 401 to Northbound Hwy 62 and from Northbound Hwy 62 to Eastbound Hwy 401. Bi-directional ramps such as this were actually quite common when Hwy 401 was first built, but they are slowly disappearing as interchanges are reconstructed.

Right - Junction of Old Hwy 7 and Hwy 62 at St. Lawrence Street and Durham Street in Downtown Madoc, facing east. Originally, Hwy 7 continued straight through at this intersection on its route towards Ottawa. After the Madoc Bypass was completed in 1967, the old route of Hwy 7 became Hwy 7B. Although Hwy 7B was decommissioned many years ago, this intersection still serves a King's Highway. At this intersection, Hwy 62 turns right and proceeds south towards Belleville. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing north along Hwy 62 (Durham Street) towards the Old Hwy 7 Junction (St. Lawrence Street) in Downtown Madoc. To continue north on Hwy 62, northbound traffic must turn left at this intersection. For a brief period during the 1960s, Hwy 7 and Hwy 62 shared a short concurrent route through Madoc, but it was discontinued after the Madoc Bypass was completed and opened to traffic in 1967. St. Lawrence Street was briefly signed as Hwy 7B, until the business route was decommissioned in 1970.
