Right - Eastern side of the southbound Hwy 11 structure at Vernon Lake Narrows. When the Huntsville Bypass first opened in 1959, this single structure carried both northbound and southbound traffic. However, as traffic volumes grew, a second structure was built to accommodate a four-lane divided highway. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing north along Hwy 11 towards the southbound (1959) Hwy 11 structure at Vernon Lake Narrows. This bridge was permanently closed to traffic during 2008 and is now slated for demolition. However, before the bridge was closed, it briefly carried two-way traffic while the northbound (1978) Hwy 11 structure was being repaired. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - The northbound Hwy 11 structure will be carrying two-way traffic for the duration of the bridge replacement project. In an effort to increase highway safety during construction, new highway illumination was temporarily installed along the northbound structure. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - The new luminaires on the Vernon Narrows Bridge are an updated, modern version of the so-called "truss" light standards that were commonly used to illuminate Ontario's freeways from the mid-1960s until the mid-1980s. The reappearance of this classic lighting design is a welcome change to the now ubiquitous "high mast" luminaires, which have been utilized extensively on Ontario freeways since the 1990s.

Right - Green guide sign on Hwy 11 marking the exit for Hwy 60 in Huntsville. Strangely, the control city on the sign is indicated as "Ottawa", even though most of the traffic using Hwy 60 from Huntsville is bound for Algonquin Park or the Barry's Bay area. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Above - Old "TO 11" green trailblazer sign on Main Street in Huntsville. This sign likely dates back to the early 1970s, when Hwy 11B through Downtown Huntsville was decommissioned. The old route of Hwy 11 (later known as Hwy 11B) through Huntsville is now known as Muskoka Road 3. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing north towards Novar on Hwy 11. Note the diversion of the northbound roadway, which was specially designed to avoid disturbing an environmentally sensitive area along the Big East River. Environmental engineering and conservation now plays a key role in new highway design and construction in Ontario. See an Enlarged Photo here.
