HWY 76 #12 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 76 #16 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing north along Hwy 76 approaching Downtown West Lorne. At Main Street (Pioneer Line), Hwy 76 turns left and then immediately turns right. The two Hwy 76 intersections are slightly offset. Due to the offset intersection geometry, Hwy 76 traffic must stop for traffic on intersecting Main Street (Pioneer Line). It is one of the only instances in the entire province where the King's Highway is not the through highway at a stop-controlled intersection.
