Middlesex Centre - Lucan Biddulph Boundary

County of Middlesex

The Highway 23 Ends junction assembly is located at the far side of the intersection of Highways 7 and 23.  Highway 7 continues west of Highway 23 as well, but WB Highway 7 traffic has already departed SB Highway 23 via a ramp.  I think the MTO would be wise to erect an advanced sign denoting the end of Highway 23 that would be visible by all traffic using Highway 23.

Highway 23 looking north from its southern terminus at Highway 7 just east of Elginfield.  This is a fairly typical view of Highway 23, showing the rather bland terrain that is Southwestern Ontario.

This signs were just days old when this Photo was taken, and who among us can resist the allure of brand new signage?  The junction assembly is of the newest style where the assembly is simply stamped onto one unified piece of wood.

Junction assembly for the western Highway 86 junction.  Before 1998, what is signed as Perth County Road 86 was part of the King's Highway network as Highway 86.  In the webmaster's opinion it seems rather obscene that Listowel would not be connected to Waterloo via a consistently numbered provincial highway.
