Highway 33 continues easterly from Highway 62 bound for Picton, Bath and eventually Kingston.  Click here for Highway 33 images.
Municipality of Prince Edward County

Signage located at the southern end of Highway 62 denoting Highway 33.  This signage correctly indicates Highway 33 continuing straight ahead.

Municipality of Prince Edward County Looking southeasterly at the southern terminus of Highway 62 at the Highway 33 junction.  As evident in the photo, the Highway 33/62 junction favours continuous movement between Belleville and Picton.

Municipality of Prince Edward County Ends assembly for Highway 62 in Bloomfield.  This signage was erected sometime in 2004, to (obviously) delineate the southern terminus of Highway 62.  Notice however, that this signage erroneously shows Prince Edward Road 33 continuing east of Highway 62 instead of indicating the through road as Highway 33.

Municipality of Prince Edward County Looking north from Bloomfield (roughly 300m north of the Highway 33 junction) along Highway 62.  The southern 600m of Highway 62 is maintained by the Municipality of Prince Edward County as part of a connecting link agreement.

City of Belleville Looking south along Highway 62 from the Highway 401 overpass in Belleville.  As evident in the photo, Highway 62 is quite congested in the vicinity of Highway 401.  South of Highway 401 through Belleville, Highway 62 is maintained by the City of Belleville as part of a connecting link agreement.

Highway 401 is Ontario's Trans-Provincial East West Freeway.  Click here for Highway 401 images
City of Belleville

Highway 62 looking north from the Highway 401 overpass.  The 62/401 interchange is one of the few remaining cloverleaf interchanges left on Ontario's highways.  62/401 is, however, not the truest of cloverleaf's.  Though not entirely visible in this photo, the ramp from WB 401 to NB 62 actually meets Highway 62 at a 'T'.  Right turns only are permitted at this intersection.  The ramp was presumably modified to accommodate Highway 62's signalized intersection with Cloverleaf Drive.

City of Belleville  This view looks northerly approaching the former Highway 14 junction, and is taken from a large embankment along the west side of the highway.  Though a bit difficult to discern from the photo, since the highway needs to be re-striped, this intersection is an old MTO offset intersection, where opposing left turning traffic does not directly face each other.
Photo taken: August 16th, 2008.

City of Belleville  Green sign for the Foxboro-Stirling Road.  The Foxboro-Stirling Road is the former Highway 14.  Because Hastings County has no official county road network any longer (though county route shields do still persist across the county), the Foxboro-Stirling Road is not officially designated as Hastings Road 14.
Photo taken: August 16th, 2008.
City of Belleville Looking north along Highway 62 from the north end of the Foxboro Bypass.  From Foxboro northerly towards West Huntington Highway 62 passes through the eastern end of the Oak Ridges Moraine.

City of Belleville. This view looks south towards Belleville from the large hill at Halloway Road.  As Highway 62 arcs to the right in this photo, notice the through road that continues ahead on a straight alignment from Highway 62.  This road is the old Madoc Road, and was the county road that predated Highway 62 through Central Hastings County.
Photo taken: August 16th, 2008.

City of Belleville Looking south towards Belleville from the Dutch Lane intersection north of Foxboro.  Highway 62 is not particularly well built from Foxboro northerly to Madoc.  The highway features narrow lanes and shoulders, and has a few relatively sharp curves.

Picturesque view of Moira Lake as Highway 62 rounds the curves at Blakely Lane.  This view looks northerly.  Generally, the road between Belleville and Bancroft is not overly scenic, however this is a noteworthy exception.

Township of Madoc

County of Hastings

Highway 7/62 junction assembly, taken looking northbound along Highway 62 at the traffic lights.  Madoc was the southern terminus of Highway 62 for many years.  It wasn't until 1966 that the MTO assumed local roads leading from Madoc to Foxboro.

Township of Madoc

County of Hastings

Looking south towards Madoc and the Highway 7 junction.  Highway 62 meets Highway 7 at a signalized intersection just to the north of Madoc.  The Highway 7 traffic signal is the only signal along Highway 62 from suburban Belleville northerly to Bancroft.
Photo taken: September 2nd, 2005.

Township of Madoc

County of Hastings

Highway 62 looking north from just north of Highway 7 at Madoc.  This is a fairly typical looking section of Highway 62 between Madoc and Bancroft.  This stretch of Highway 62 makes for one of Ontario's more boring drives.  Terrain is fairly flat and scenery is pretty mundane.

Photo taken: October 23rd, 2004.

Municipality of Hastings Highlands

County of Hastings

Highway 62 looking south from Graphite Road (which is a few kilometres south of Maynooth).  Northbound Highway 62 travelers encounter a long hill climb en route from Bancroft to Maynooth.  This hill is known locally as 'Selby Hill'.  Due to this long grade, Highway 62 has a roughly 3 kilometre long northbound truck climbing lane.

Photo taken: July 17th, 2004.

Maynooth marks the current (1998) northern terminus of Highway 62.  (The Highway 62 junction in Maynooth also notably the southern terminus of Highway 127).

Deck view of the Madawaska River bridge along Highway 62 facing southerly.  It is uncommon in Ontario for the sidewalk to be partitioned from the driving surface by a concrete parapet as it has been on this structure.

County of Renfrew
View looking westerly along Highway 60/62 from the eastern Highway 60 junction at Highway 512.  Before Highway 62 was transferred to local municipalities north of Maynooth, the pictured reassurance marker indicating the road solely as Highway 60 would have included a Highway 62 marker as well.

View looking westerly towards the eastern Highway 60/62 junction.  Northbound Highway 62 traffic must turn to the left at this intersection, while traffic continuing easterly follows the through road.

Township of Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards

County of Renfrew
Southerly view at Highway 60.  This junction is very unassuming for the intersection of two King's Highways.  The simplicity of this junction probably speaks to Highway 62's relative unimportance through Renfrew County.  Highway 62 has an indirect alignment around Round Lake.
