Present Day King's Highway 7B (Peterborough) Photographs

Left - Facing west along Peterborough Road 1 (Former Hwy 7B) about 6 km east of Fowlers Corners. Up until 1960, this route was part of Hwy 7. At a result of the completion of the West Peterborough Bypass, the old route of Hwy 7 leading into Downtown Peterborough from Fowlers Corners was renumbered as Hwy 7B. Unlike most of Ontario's "B" Business Routes, Peterborough's Hwy 7B had an unusually long rural section north of the city, in addition to the more typical urbanized portions of the business route through Downtown. Peterborough's Hwy 7B was nearly 20 km in length. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Green guide sign approaching the Peterborough Road 1 (Former Hwy 7B) Junction at Chemong Corners. Up until 1997, Hwy 7B turned left at Chemong Corners on its route west between Peterborough and Fowlers Corners. Note that the old Hwy 7B provincial highway crown on the sign has been covered over by a county road "flowerpot" marker. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Above - Facing east along Charlotte Street (Former Hwy 28 & Hwy 115) at Monaghan Road (Former Hwy 7B). Prior to 1997, Hwy 28 turned left at this intersection and headed north along Monaghan Road concurrently with Hwy 7B. The route of Hwy 115 reached its pre-1997 northern terminus at this junction. The route of Hwy 7B also continued south from here along Monaghan Road to Lansdowne Street, where the route of Hwy 7B turned easterly towards the Peterborough Bypass and Ottawa. As a result of the downloading of various highways and revocation of municipal connecting links in the Peterborough area in 1997-1998, there are no longer any provincial highways which pass through the urbanized sections of Peterborough.
