Right - Approaching Furnival Road on Hwy 3 at New Glasgow, facing east. Historically, Furnival Road between the Hwy 3 Junction at New Glasgow and nearby Rodney was a King's Highway (Former Hwy 77) between 1936 and 1957. This historical route of Hwy 77 in Elgin County should not be confused with the present day route of Hwy 77 in Essex County, which extends from Leamington northerly to Hwy 401 near Comber. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing north along Furnival Road (Former Hwy 77) from the Hwy 3 Junction at New Glasgow. The Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) assumed ownership of a 4-mile section of Furnival Road from New Glasgow to Rodney in August, 1936. After remaining in the provincial highway system for over 20 years, jurisdiction over Hwy 77 was transferred from the province to Elgin County in December, 1957. Former Hwy 77 subsequently became Elgin County Road 3. When the province transferred ownership of Hwy 3 west of Talbotville to Elgin County in 1998, the county made a wise decision to renumber Furnival Road as County Road 103, so that their County Road 3 designation could be reassigned to the downloaded section of Hwy 3 instead.

Left - Distance guide sign at Hwy 3 and Furnival Road in New Glasgow. This guide sign was produced by Elgin County using the same Federal Highways Administration (FHWA) letter fonts as those seen on MTO-produced provincial highway signs. Not all counties in Ontario make use of FHWA letter fonts for their signs. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
