NEW Right - Junction assembly on southbound Hwy 62 approaching the Hwy 60 & Hwy 512 Junction near Killaloe. A single Hwy 62 South marker still stands at this junction - a historical reminder that a provincially-maintained Hwy 62 once extended this far north. Today, the province only maintains Hwy 62 south of Maynooth. Jurisdiction over Hwy 62 from Maynooth to Barry's Bay and from Killaloe to Pembroke was transferred from the province to the municipal tier in 1997-1998. As the sign indicates, Hwy 60 & Hwy 62 once shared a concurrent route between Barry's Bay and Killaloe. The overlapped route of Hwy 60 & Hwy 62 was discontinued in 1998. The downloaded north leg of Hwy 62 from Killaloe to Pembroke is now officially known as Renfrew County Road 58. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - View of Round Lake from the Byers Creek Bridge on Hwy 62. The route of Hwy 62 nearly orbits the entire lake. In the 1960s, a proposal was considered to build a much shorter cut-off route for Hwy 62 to Killaloe around the eastern side of Round Lake. Those plans were eventually abandoned, so the route of Hwy 62 remained more or less unchanged from the 1960s up until the 1990s when Hwy 62 was decommissioned as a King's Highway. Had the Hwy 62 cut-off been built, it would have shortened the highway distance between Killaloe and Pembroke by about 10 km. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Former Hwy 62 alignment (Lakeview Drive) at Round Lake Centre, about 16 km north of Killaloe. The highway was realigned here in the late 1960s, bypassing this old section of road. Today, this old section of Hwy 62 provides local access to the cottages along the western shores of Round Lake. See an Enlarged Photo here.

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. Most of the old highway's asphalt beyond this point was removed by adjacent landowners. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Jack's Lake Roadside Park on Hwy 62, located about 14 km north of Round Lake Centre. For a number of years after the province transferred ownership of Hwy 62 over to the County of Renfrew, the county continued to operate the roadside park at Jack's Lake. The park's facilities were closed down at the end of 2009, leaving only the parking area seen here. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Side view of the Indian River Bridge on Old Hwy 62 (Borne Road) north of Alice. This single-span steel beam structure was built before the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) took over the Round Lake Road as Hwy 62 in 1937. This bridge likely dates from about 1925. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Old Hwy 62 at the Indian River Bridge north of Alice. This old section of Hwy 62 was bypassed by the new Alice Diversion in 1964. The narrow bridge near Alice had a roadway width of only 17 feet, and could only accommodate one direction of traffic at a time. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Facing west along Hwy 17 towards Petawawa approaching Round Lake Road (Hwy 62 & Hwy 148) near Pembroke. Up until 1997, Round Lake Road south of the Hwy 17 Junction was part of King's Highway 62, while north of the Hwy 17 Junction, Round Lake Road was known as King's Highway 148. Both of these provincial highways were transferred to the County of Renfrew in 1997. Renfrew County renamed the two former highways collectively as Renfrew County Road 58. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Facing north along Round Lake Road (Hwy 62) towards the Hwy 17 Junction near Pembroke. Prior to 1997, Hwy 62 reached its northern terminus at the Hwy 17 Junction. As a result of highway transfers and government service realignment in the 1990s, provincial ownership of Hwy 62 now ends in Maynooth, located about 130 km to the south. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Above - Junction sign assembly at the Hwy 17 and Former Hwy 62 & Hwy 148 Junction near Pembroke. Prior to 1997, the County Road 58 flowerpot route marker would have been a Hwy 148 provincial crown sign.
