Historical King's Highway 7A Photographs


HWY 115 #2

Above - Aerial view of the Hwy 7A Junction on Hwy 115 east of Cavan in 1972. This was one of several at-grade intersections along Hwy 115 that was grade-separated during the twinning of Hwy 115 in the early 1990s. In addition to being widened from two to four lanes, Hwy 115 was also converted into a fully controlled-access freeway between the Hwy 35 Interchange at Enterprise Hill and the Hwy 28 Interchange southwest of Peterborough.

HWY 115 #1

Above - Aerial view of the Hwy 28 Interchange on Hwy 115 (historically Hwy 115 & Hwy 7A) southwest of Peterborough in 1972, facing south towards Port Hope. This interesting photo shows the partially-completed interchange, as it appeared before the extension of Hwy 115 to the Peterborough Bypass in the late 1970s. When Hwy 115 was first opened to traffic in 1954, the highway terminated at a "T" Junction at Hwy 28. As traffic volumes grew over the years, the number of vehicles turning left onto Hwy 28 at the end of Hwy 115 started to cause significant congestion at this highway junction. In 1966-1967, a partial interchange was built at Hwy 115 & Hwy 28 as an interim improvement until Hwy 115 was extended easterly from Hwy 28 to the Peterborough Bypass. This interim improvement proved to be very effective, as it successfully accommodated the heavy left-turn movement from Hwy 115 via a grade separation over Hwy 28. A loop ramp carried Hwy 115 traffic north towards Peterborough uninterrupted. It wasn't until 1978 that Hwy 115 was finally extended easterly from Hwy 28 to the Peterborough Bypass. The Hwy 28 Interchange was reconfigured when this section of Hwy 115 was twinned in 1985. See an Enlarged Photo here.
