Historical King's Highway 92 Photographs


HWY 92 #1

Above - New Nottawasaga River Bridge on Main Street (Hwy 92) in Wasaga Beach in 1961. This new four-span steel girder bridge was completed in the Fall of 1961. It replaced a narrow steel truss bridge with a timber deck on Main Street that dated from the 1920s. Photo taken in 1961.

Right - Destination guide sign on northbound Hwy 27 approaching the Hwy 92 Junction in Elmvale. It is interesting to note that the destination control city on this sign for Hwy 27 is Penetanguishene, reflecting the highway's historical northern terminus. In 1982, the northern leg of Hwy 27 from Waverley to Penetanguishene was renumbered as Hwy 93. The route of Hwy 27 was then truncated at the Hwy 93 Junction in Waverley. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Beginning of Hwy 92 at the Hwy 27 Junction in Elmvale, facing west towards Wasaga Beach. The route of Hwy 92 was first established in 1936, in an effort to improve provincial highway access to the popular summer resort town of Wasaga Beach. The route of Hwy 92 extends from Elmvale westerly to Wasaga Beach, where it connects with Hwy 26. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Junction assembly at the intersection of Hwy 27 & Hwy 92 in Elmvale. Both of these highways were transferred to Simcoe County during the mass provincial highway downloading spree which took place in 1997-1998. During that time, thousands of kilometres of provincial highways which were deemed to serve primarily "local purposes" were handed over to municipalities as a provincial cost-cutting measure. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Eastern terminus of Hwy 92 at the Hwy 27 Junction in Elmvale. These two highways have met at this intersection ever since Hwy 92 was first established in 1936. As a result of the provincial highway downloading of the 1990s, Simcoe County now maintains jurisdiction over both Hwy 27 and Hwy 92. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Left - Facing east along River Road West (Hwy 92) towards Elmvale from the Schoonertown Bridge in Wasaga Beach. This section of Hwy 92 was established fairly recently, as part of a 1979 Municipal Connecting Link agreement between the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) and the Town of Wasaga Beach. From 1936 up until 1979, Hwy 92 ended in Downtown Wasaga Beach and did not connect to Hwy 26 west of Wasaga Beach. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Northern side of the Schoonertown Bridge on Hwy 92 in Wasaga Beach. This bridge is located on a horizontal curve and thus has a superelevated bridge deck with a transverse crossfall of approximately 4 percent. River Road West was expanded from two lanes to four lanes across the Schoonertown Bridge by the Town of Wasaga Beach in 2015. Fortunately, when the Schoonertown Bridge was first designed back in 1973, engineers had the foresight to design the bridge in such a way that it could be expanded to an ultimate four-lane cross section fairly easily. On the original construction drawings, this bridge is identified as the "Schoonertown Bridge", not the "Schooner Town Bridge" as indicated on the blue mid-span identification sign. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - Facing east along River Road West (Hwy 92) towards the Schoonertown Bridge from Mosley Street in Wasaga Beach. The extension of River Road West through Wasaga Beach during the 1970s and early 1980s appears to have been a joint project between the province and the municipality. The MTC constructed the Schoonertown Bridge in 1976, which allowed for through traffic to bypass the congested downtown beach area and provided an improved municipal road connection between Hwy 92 and Hwy 26. Ultimately, River Road West was officially designated as a Municipal Connecting Link portion of Hwy 92 in 1979. See an Enlarged Photo here.

HWY 92 #21 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 92 #22 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Junction of River Road West (Hwy 92) and Mosley Street, facing east. Prior to the construction of the Schoonertown Bridge in the mid-1970s, Mosley Street simply curved to the left and headed east into Downtown Wasaga Beach. See an Enlarged Photo here.

NEW Right - This "butterfly" overhead sign structure at Mosley Street and River Road West guides through traffic to Hwy 92. This sign structure likely dates from the late 1970s. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - The traffic signal heads at the junction of Hwy 26 and Hwy 92 were affixed to overhead cables. Cable-mounted signals are relatively uncommon on provincial highways, except for temporary conditions such as a bridge reconstruction or other roadway improvements where permanent mast-mounted signal heads would be impractical. These traffic signals were removed once a roundabout was built at this junction. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing east along Collingwood Airport Road towards the Hwy 26 and Hwy 92 Junction in Wasaga Beach. As part of the adjacent Hwy 26 New construction, major changes were made to this intersection. Collingwood Airport Road was realigned further to the south, where it intersects Hwy 26 New at a roundabout. The existing signalized intersection of Hwy 26 and Hwy 92 shown here was also converted into a roundabout. See an Enlarged Photo here.
