Left - Junction of Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 in Downtown Stirling, facing west. At this intersection, Hwy 14 turns right from Front Street onto North Street and continues north from Stirling towards Marmora. Hwy 33 begins at this junction and continues straight ahead via Front Street. About 1 km ahead, Hwy 33 turns south towards Frankford and Trenton. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Even though it is only a four-leg intersection, the traffic signals at the Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 Junction in Downtown Stirling have a very unusual layout. A third street (Mill Street) intersects Front Street and North Street at an angle within the intersection, which means that some directions of traffic have to move on their own dedicated signal phase. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Junction of Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 in Downtown Stirling, facing east along Front Street. Hwy 33 reaches its historical (pre-1996) northern terminus at this highway junction. During the 1990s, jurisdiction over the entire route of Hwy 33 between Bloomfield and Stirling was transferred from the province to the Counties of Prince Edward and Hastings. At the traffic signals, Hwy 14 South continues straight ahead towards Foxboro and Belleville via Front Street, while Hwy 14 North (at left) heads north towards Marmora via North Street.

Left - Facing southwest along Mill Street approaching the Hwy 14 & Hwy 33 Junction in Downtown Stirling. This fourth intersection leg joins in at an angle, which makes for a rather complicated traffic signal layout. Traffic using the north and northeast legs of this intersection must move on their own protected phase. No Right Turn on Red prohibitions are in place on many of the intersection legs, to avoid potential conflicts with advancing traffic from one of the other intersection legs. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Eastern side of the Rawdon Creek Bridge on Hwy 33 in Stirling. This small concrete bridge was constructed as a Depression-era unemployment relief project. Local labourers were hired on a day-to-day basis to work on the structure over the Winter of 1934-1935. The new bridge replaced a narrow old concrete arch structure. This bridge was built at a cost of approximately $10,000 (in 1935 Dollars), the equivalent of about $195,000 today. The Great Depression of the 1930s drastically reduced highway construction costs for the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO), as construction prices of all kinds cascaded downwards in the first half of the decade due to stubbornly low demand. Even adjusting for normal price inflation, a bridge such as this would cost far more than $185,000 to construct today. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 33 #96 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 33 #97 - © Cameron Bevers

NEW Left - Curve and earth cut on Hwy 33, facing south near Rosebush Road. The right-of-way along Hwy 33 is very constrained, since most of the highway from Stirling to Frankford follows an original one Chain (66 feet) road allowance. Accordingly, there are places along the highway where there are only nominal shoulder widths. This particular highway curve serves as a present-day reminder of what Ontario's early King's Highways looked like - motorists driving this highway back in 1938 would have experienced a very similar view! It is unusual to find a King's Highway (even former ones) with such a narrow right-of-way, as most have been widened over the years to accommodate wider shoulders and improved roadside drainage. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on September 27, 2020  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Facing north along Hwy 33 towards the curve and earth cut near Rosebush Road, located about 3 km south of Stirling. As is plainly evident in this photo, it is virtually impossible to fit in the grading requirements for a two-lane highway with full-width shoulders, while still ensuring proper roadside drainage within a 66-foot road allowance. Narrow rights-of-way often prohibited the DHO from constructing shoulders on early King's Highways. Engineering challenges aside, Hwy 33 from Stirling to Frankford is a delight to drive - it is truly a lasting vestige of early motoring on Ontario's Highways. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 33 towards Stirling, about 5 km north of Frankford. The province assumed responsibility over the Frankford-Stirling Road and designated it as part of King's Highway 33 in July, 1930. Provincial ownership of Hwy 33 between Frankford and Stirling ceased in 1996, when jurisdiction over the highway was transferred to Hastings County. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Old DHO survey monument on Hwy 33 between Stirling and Frankford. These concrete monuments were used as control points for survey work and to establish elevations of various highway features. Thousands of these concrete obelisks were erected along the King's Highways during the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Note the proximity of the monument to the edge of the highway - a 66-foot highway right-of-way is incredibly narrow! See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - The old Hwy 33 opening bridge was located just upstream of the Frankford Lock. It was replaced with this fixed high-level structure in 1973, as part of a multi-year program to eliminate the numerous opening canal bridges on provincial highways which crossed the Trent-Severn Waterway. The DHO began replacing these opening canal bridges in the mid-1950s, beginning with the Washago Bridge on Hwy 11 and the Young's Point Bridge on Hwy 28 in 1954. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Facing west across the Trent River Bridge on Hwy 33 towards Downtown Frankford. This new bridge replaced a five-span steel through truss bridge that was built in 1911. The old bridge had a vertical clearance at the portals of 15 feet, which although somewhat limited, was actually far greater than the vertical clearance of many bridges built in the early 20th Century. The foresight of the Frankford Bridge's designer to use such a generous vertical clearance allowed the bridge to remain in service carrying traffic on Hwy 33 until well into the 1970s. Unfortunately, the roadway's width across the bridge was only 14 feet (4.25 metres) which required traffic to use the bridge in one direction at a time only. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Northern side of the Trent River Bridge on Hwy 33, as seen from Downtown Frankford. The Trent River Bridge is a five-span steel box girder structure. The concrete deck is supported on an arrangement of three trapezoidal weathering steel box girders. Many Ontario highway bridges were built using this design during the 1970s and early 1980s. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Western entrance to the Frankford Bridge System, facing east from Trent Street. The vertical gradient on the bridge is rather apparent in this photo. Including approaches, the Frankford Bridge System on Hwy 33 is about 550 metres in length - an impressive piece of highway infrastructure, particularly considering that it was situated on a relatively minor King's Highway route.

NEW Right - Facing west along Hwy 33 from the Trent River Bridge approaching Trent Street. At the traffic signals, Hwy 33 turns left onto Trent Street and resumes its route south towards Trenton, while Quinte West Road 5 continues straight ahead via Mill Street towards Wooler. When the bridge system at Frankford was replaced in the 1970s, the alignment of the bridge was corrected so that it was tangential to Mill Street on the far side of the intersection. The old 1911 Trent River Bridge was built at a right-angle to the river crossing, which created an awkward skewed intersection at Mill Street and Trent Street in Downtown Frankford. Prior to the reconstruction, the approach to the old 1911 bridge departed from this intersection diagonally at left. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

The Bata Shoe Company established a large shoe manufacturing plant in 1939 a short distance west of Hwy 33, along with a small community to accommodate the plant's employees. The new company town was formally named "Batawa" in June, 1940. History enthusiast who are visiting this area may find the planned pre-World War II town of Batawa an interesting side journey off of Hwy 33. Although the shoe manufacturing plant is no longer operating, the town's homes situated on curving suburban streets, parks, schools, church and community centre are all still in use today.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 33 at the Hwy 401 Interchange north of Trenton. Due to the adjacent Trent River, the ramps of the Hwy 33 Interchange on Hwy 401 are in an unusual "A-B Parclo" configuration. Interchanges of this design are rather uncommon on Ontario's freeways. They are characterized by having four ramps on one side of the interchange only, yet still providing all movements to and from the freeway. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - South Hwy 401 ramp terminal at the Hwy 33 Interchange in Trenton. Motorists who turn right here can follow Hwy 33 south into Trenton. Motorists who turn left here can follow Hwy 33 north to Frankford and Stirling. Although this section of Hwy 33 is no longer a provincial highway, it is still an important route for the communities along the Trent River. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 401 #1052 - © Cameron Bevers

Above - The bi-directional freeway ramp at the Hwy 401 & Hwy 33 Interchange in Trenton was deliberately elongated, so that traffic entering eastbound Hwy 401 had enough space to accelerate before merging into the mainline lanes. This unusual ramp design avoided the expense of building an acceleration lane across the adjacent Trent River Bridge. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
