Right - Another view of the former Hwy 97 alignment, showing the old curved diversion. The Department of Highways built many small corner diversions such as this one during the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s, in order to best serve high-speed through traffic on the main provincial highway. In this particular case, the curved corner diversion was later rebuilt on a new alignment with a more gradual curve. See an Enlarged Photo here.
