Left - Facing east along Main Street (Hwy 10 & Hwy 89) in Downtown Shelburne. Hwy 10 & Hwy 89 share a brief overlapped route for 5 km between Shelburne and Primrose. At Primrose, Hwy 89 continues east towards Alliston, while Hwy 10 turns right and resumes its route south towards Toronto. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing west along Main Street (Hwy 10 & Hwy 89) in Downtown Shelburne, approaching Owen Sound Street. Traffic wishing to continue north along Hwy 10 must turn right at Owen Sound Street. As the street name implies, Hwy 10 heads northwest to Owen Sound. Hwy 89 continues straight ahead on its route west towards Mount Forest. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Junction sign assembly at the Hwy 10 & Hwy 89 Junction in Downtown Shelburne. The west junction of Hwy 10 & Hwy 89 is somewhat unusual, as it occurs in the town centre rather than at a rural or suburban highway junction. Although King's Highways often connect in urban centres, the highway junction itself is seldom situated right in the downtown central core. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 10 from Hwy 89 in Shelburne. It is interesting to note that all of Shelburne's historic buildings surrounding this intersection have managed to survive, thanks to the foresight of early town planners who laid out comparatively wide main streets. All too often, narrow main streets through Ontario towns left highway engineers with the difficult decision of either demolishing historic buildings around major intersections or bypassing towns altogether in order to accommodate transport trucks, buses and other long vehicles on Ontario's highways. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - The southbound Hwy 10 Stop Bar at the traffic signal had to be set far back from the intersection to allow trucks and buses to turn right onto Hwy 10 North. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - A transport truck makes the right turn from Main Street (Hwy 10 & Hwy 89) onto Owen Sound Street (Hwy 10 North) in Downtown Shelburne. Although transport trucks do have to take this corner slowly, the trucks can physically fit through the intersection. However, this situation was the exception in Ontario, rather than the rule. In towns with narrow streets, some of the buildings around major intersections had to be demolished in order to create an intersection which could handle transport trucks, buses and other long vehicles.

Left - Facing south along Owen Sound Street (Hwy 10) at Main Street (Hwy 89). Due to the constrained geometric conditions at this intersection, the Stop Bar had to be set far back from the traffic signals in order to allow transport trucks to make right turns off of Main Street. Right turns are prohibited on red from southbound Hwy 10 to westbound Hwy 89. See an Enlarged Photo here.
