Location Description Photo
Westbound Eastbound
District of Kenora Eastbound view over the Manitoba boundary. For some reason, there are two King's Highway 17 reassurance markers in short succession and the large sign indicates that the speed limit on this stretch of highway is 90 km/h. In neighboring Manitoba, the speed limit is 100 km/h. At left is the stub of highway where the former PTH 1, later redesignated as PTH 4 and currently PTH 44, entered Ontario and joined with King's Highway 17. That highway was still in use in Manitoba into the 1970s. Older highway maps indicate that Ontario never did designate a highway number for that brief stretch of road.

District of Kenora The Socialist People's Republic of Manitoba welcomes you. The pavement changes at the boundary and the speed limit increases to 100 km/h. The 490 km marker at right is a Manitoba marker and indicates the distance to the Saskatchewan boundary.

District of Kenora Eastbound view showing a sign advising motorists to slow down for stopped emergency vehicles. The “IT'S THE LAW” wording on top of the sign would mean little to those visiting from Manitoba, where laws are anything but aggressively enforced.
