Looking south along Highway 28 towards its current southern terminus at Highway 7.  Highway 28 meets Highway 7 about 7km east of Highway 115 in Peterborough.  Several geometric improvements to this intersection were made during a construction contract that saw Highway 7 widened to five lanes easterly from Peterborough to this junction in 2011.

This sign assembly denotes the southern terminus of Highway 28 at the Highway 7 and Peterborough Road 34 junction located east of the City of Peterborough.  Before Summer 2003, this stretch of Highway 28 was part of Highway 134.  Highway 134 was renumbered to 28 to improve the logic of the areas route numbering.

Looking south towards the intersection with Peterborough Road 4 at Five Corners.  The intersection with Peterborough Road 4 is controlled by a four-way stop.  This four-way stop causes a great deal of congestion during peak summer times, and should be replaced by traffic signals.  A northbound passing lane starts just north of Peterborough Road 4.

A series of three views towards then then current and now former Peterborough Road 29 junction.  Before 2003, Highway 134 ended at this junction, becoming Highway 28 northerly.  In 2003, Highway 134 was renumbered to Highway 28, improving the highway numbering through Peterborough County.  In 2012, construction started on a new curve diversion that would eliminate the turn that was required for through movements along Highway 28 -- this configuration is highlighted in the middle photo.  The lower photo shows the completed curve diversion with the pavement on the former alignment having been pulverized and removed.

View beneath the Trent-Severn Waterway bridge.  Highway 28 crosses the waterway directly overtop of Burleigh Falls Lock #29.  The bridges that carry Highway 28 overtop of both the Trent-Severn Waterway and Burleigh Falls North Branch were constructed approximately 2 decades later than the Burleigh Falls South Branch bridge.  Aside from the alignment of the small parking lot for the lock, no evidence remains of the former swing bridge that once carried Highway 28 across the canal.

Easterly view from slightly further east than the previous photo.  Highway 28 descends into a steep valley just beyond the pictured curve.  Notice the chevron's that have been installed as positive guidance to guide traffic around the pictured curve.  Because the curve is situated just east of a vertical crest curve, the horizontal curve cannot be seen by the driver at all.  In such a circumstance, it is tremendously important to place positive guidance to lead drivers around the curve.

Another easterly view, this time towards the third of four eastbound signs that denote the Highway 41 junction.  The Highway 41 intersection is obscured by the curve in the highway ahead and likely catches drivers by surprise.  Likely this is why the MTO has elected to place as many junction signs as they have.
