HWY 17 #1266

NEW Above - Circa 1965 postcard view of Elm Street (Hwy 17 & Hwy 69) in Downtown Sudbury, facing west from Durham Street. This interesting photo shows the traffic signals at Durham Street and Elm Street operating in a pedestrian-only phase, where vehicular traffic on all legs of the intersection face a red signal. Pedestrians were thus allowed to cross the intersection freely in any direction. At the time this photo was taken in the mid-1960s, Hwy 69 turned north via Durham Street towards Val Caron. The back of the junction assembly can be seen at left, mounted to the traffic signal pole. The section of Hwy 69 through Downtown Sudbury out to Val Caron and Hanmer was ultimately decommissioned in the late 1970s. Since 1978, Hwy 69 has ended at the Sudbury Southwest Bypass (today's Hwy 17). See an Enlarged Photo Here.
