County of Haliburton
View looking easterly along Highway 118 between Vankoughnet and Boshkung Lake.  Because this section of Highway 118 is such a new road (it was cut through the forest in the early 1980s), it features several long tangential segments similar to that pictured, where the road follows an undulating path through the forest.

Easterly view at the Boshkung Lake Structure.  An abutment for a former single lane bridge is visible on the opposite side of the river.  Likely a short truss bridge carried the precursor to Highway 118 over the lake prior to the construction of the current steel bridge.

Junction assembly for the now defunct Highway 121 junction in Downtown Haliburton.  Before 1998 Highway 118 actually ended at this junction as Highway 121 continued both straight ahead and to the right.  Since then, the portion south of Haliburton was downloaded and the easterly portion of Highway 121 was incorporated into Highway 118.
