Left - Facing west towards Perth along the Carleton Place Bypass (Hwy 7) near Napoleon Street. The Carleton Place Bypass was completed and opened to traffic in December, 1959. The new bypass was built to relieve recurring traffic congestion on Bridge Street through Downtown Carleton Place, which once carried the former routes of Hwy 15 & Hwy 29. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Green guide sign on eastbound Hwy 7 indicating the upcoming Hwy 15 Junction in Carleton Place. As a result of the mass highway downloading spree of 1997-1998, the Hwy 7 & Hwy 15 Junction is the only non-freeway junction of two provincial highways in the Ottawa area. Up until the mid-1990s, Hwy 15 followed Franktown Road north from Hwy 7 through Downtown Carleton Place, where the route then continued north towards Arnprior. As a result of the highway downloading of 1997-1998, Hwy 15 no longer continues north from Carleton Place. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Green guide sign for Franktown Road in Carleton Place. Up until the mid-1990s, Hwy 15 followed Franktown Road north from Hwy 7 through Downtown Carleton Place, where the route then continued north towards Arnprior. As a result of the highway downloading of 1997-1998, Hwy 15 no longer continues north from Carleton Place. A new truck bypass for Hwy 15 (McNeely Avenue) was constructed in the 1990s along the eastern side of Carleton Place, in order to divert through traffic away from Bridge Street (Old Hwy 15). See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing east along Hwy 7 towards the Hwy 15 Junction in Carleton Place. From here, motorists can either turn left and follow Franktown Road north into Downtown Carleton Place or turn right and head south along Hwy 15 towards Smiths Falls and Kingston. Ottawa lies 38 km straight ahead via Hwy 7. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing west along Hwy 7 towards the Hwy 15 Junction in Carleton Place. Prior to 1998, Hwy 15 was one of several highways leading south from Hwy 7 to Hwy 401 between Ottawa and Peterborough. As a result of the mass highway downloading of 1997-1998, Hwy 15, along with Hwy 37 and Hwy 62, form the only north-south provincial highway links between Hwy 7 and Hwy 401 between here and Peterborough. Prior to 1998, motorists could take their pick from five other King's Highways (Hwy 38, Hwy 41, Hwy 30, Hwy 45 and Hwy 28) to reach Hwy 401 from Hwy 7. However, all five of these highways were transferred to municipalities and are therefore no longer provincial highways today. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Guide sign marking the Hwy 15 Junction on westbound Hwy 7 in Carleton Place. The route of Hwy 15 extends south from Carleton Place to Smiths Falls and ultimately, Kingston. Prior to 1998, Hwy 15 shared a brief concurrent route with Hwy 7 between Franktown Road and McNeely Avenue (East Carleton Place Bypass). However, this concurrent routing was very short-lived and was discontinued when the section of Hwy 15 from Carleton Place to Arnprior was downloaded to Lanark County and the former Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing north along Franktown Road (Formerly Hwy 15) towards Downtown Carleton Place from the Hwy 7 Junction. Up until the 1990s, Hwy 15 extended north from Carleton Place to Arnprior. The northern section of Hwy 15 from Carleton Place to Arnprior fell victim to the mass highway downloading spree of 1997-1998. As a result, Hwy 15 now reaches its northern terminus at the Hwy 7 Junction in Carleton Place. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 7 towards Perth from the Hwy 15 Junction in Carleton Place. Up until the completion of the Carleton Place Bypass in 1959, there was no through road here. Traffic heading west to Perth had to turn right and follow Franktown Road and Bridge Street through Downtown Carleton Place in order to continue west to Perth. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Guide sign marking the Hwy 15 Junction on eastbound Hwy 7 in Carleton Place. Heading eastbound, Hwy 15 is the last provincial highway junction along Hwy 7 before Hwy 417 in Ottawa. Following the completion of the East Carleton Place Bypass (McNeely Avenue) in the mid-1990s, Hwy 15 was briefly routed along Hwy 7 from this intersection easterly to McNeely Avenue. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

For a couple of years in the mid-1990s, Hwy 7 & Hwy 15 shared a short concurrent route for about 600 metres between McNeely Avenue and Franktown Road. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
