Right - Rocky Church Diversion on Hwy 6, facing south towards Durham. The route of Hwy 6 was relocated to the east during a major highway reconstruction project which took place in 1958. The old route of Hwy 6 (Rocky Church Road) is rather apparent in this photo, as it climbs a steep hill in the background. The new route bypassed this hill altogether, greatly improving the highway's alignment. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Junction of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 in Chatsworth. The routes of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 run concurrently for about 13 km between Chatsworth and Owen Sound. The overlapped route of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 north of Chatsworth is the busiest two-lane King's Highway in the Owen Sound area.

Right - Hwy 10 joins Hwy 6 in Chatsworth. A right-turn channelization was constructed at this intersection to serve the predominant Hwy 10 right turn traffic movement.

HWY 6 #140 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 6 #139 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - The intersection of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 is on a considerable skew. Fortunately, the skewed intersection favours the predominant traffic movements, via Hwy 10. Very little traffic makes a left turn off of Northbound Hwy 10 onto Southbound Hwy 6, or a right turn from Northbound Hwy 6 onto Southbound Hwy 10.
(Photograph taken on October 3, 2010  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - After sharing a concurrent route for 13 km, Hwy 10 turns left off of Hwy 6 and heads southeast towards Shelburne, Orangeville and Toronto. The route of Hwy 6 continues straight through at Chatsworth and heads south towards Durham, Guelph and Hamilton.

Left - Recently-installed Yield control on the right-turn channelization from Northbound Hwy 10 to Northbound Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 in Chatsworth. This was originally a free-flow right turn movement, but it was placed under Yield control due to the limited length of the acceleration lane downstream of the intersection.

HWY 6 #143 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 6 #142 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Traffic volumes increase rather substantially north of the Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 Junction in Chatsworth, since all traffic on these two highways gets funnelled into a single route between Chatsworth and Owen Sound. Heading south from Chatsworth, Hwy 6 & Hwy 10 traffic gets distributed almost evenly between the two highways once they part ways at the junction in Chatsworth.

Right - Plaque commemorating the 19th Century Toronto-Sydenham Road, which was built to encourage settlement in the Owen Sound area. The historic Toronto-Sydenham Road more or less forms the present day route of Hwy 10.

Left - This abandoned twin-slab concrete highway was the original route of Hwy 6 & Hwy 10, until it was bypassed by a new highway alignment in the 1950s. This concrete pavement was constructed around 1923, during improvements to the Owen Sound-Chatsworth Highway.
