Right - Deck view of the Maitland River Tributary Bridge. Note that this structure does not have any sidewalks for pedestrians. This was a fairly common design characteristic of older county road bridges built in rural parts of Ontario prior to 1970. This bridge was constructed by Wellington County just before the Harriston-Palmerston Road was designated as Hwy 89 in 1963. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Guide signs at the junction of Hwy 23 (Former Hwy 89) and Hwy 87 west of Harriston. Before the highway was downloaded to Wellington County in 1997, Hwy 87 continued east from this point into Downtown Harriston (concurrently with Former Hwy 89), where it ended at the Hwy 9 Junction. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing south along the left turn lane from Hwy 23 (Former Hwy 89) North onto Hwy 87 West. Evidently, very few vehicles actually make this turning movement, given the excessive salt and sand deposits that have accumulated on the left turn lane during the recent winter snow clearing operations. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 23 #38 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 23 #39 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Guide signs approaching the Hwy 23 and Hwy 87 Junction at Harriston. The Hwy 23 designation was only recently applied to this highway. Until late 2004, the section of Hwy 23 from Palmerston to Harriston was designated as Hwy 89. The route number was changed in order to simplify provincial highway numbering in this area. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Approaching the Hwy 87 Junction on Hwy 23 (Former Hwy 89) near Harriston. A right turn channel was built at this intersection in the 1960s to facilitate northbound "through traffic" movements on Former Hwy 89 heading towards Harriston. However, traffic heading westbound on Former Hwy 89 from Harriston still had to turn left in order to continue along Hwy 89, since Hwy 87 is actually the through route at this intersection. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing east along Hwy 23 towards Harriston from the Hwy 87 Junction. Until 1997, Hwy 87 shared this short highway section with Former Hwy 89. The concurrent route of Hwy 87 and Hwy 89 was discontinued when Hwy 87 was downloaded to Wellington County. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Above - Facing west along Hwy 23 (Former Hwy 89) towards the Maitland River Bridge in Harriston. This structure is particularly interesting because it is situated at an intersection between Hwy 23 and a side street. The Maitland River passes directly below the intersection. See an Enlarged Photo here.
