View of the western terminus of Highway 7A at Manchester.  Durham Regional Road 21 continues straight ahead from this junction.  Regional Road 21 is a good quality road, worthy of a King's Highway designation.  It makes a very useful connection between Highway 7A and Highway 404.

View looking westerly towards the Old Simcoe Road intersection.  The vibrant reds of autumn have started showing on the foliage adjacent to Highway 7A.  Vibrant fall colours are indicative of a hot summer -- the summer of 2012 was quite hot and dry.

Highway 7A looking west from the Island Road intersection towards Port Perry.  Interestingly, the causeway linking Port Perry with Scugog Island replaced a floating bridge.  This floating bridge was constructed by the county long before Highway 7A was assumed as a provincial highway.  Reportedly this floating bridge lasted until the mid 1960s.

White sign denoting the numbering change along Highway 115 from Highway 7A/115.  Highway 7A was truncated at the 115 interchange just east of Cavan when Highway 7 was rerouted along part of Highway 7A's alignment between Highway 28 and Scott's Corners in 2003.  This means that Highway 7A's eastern terminus is no longer at Highway 7.
