Left - Traces of the old timber bents for the original Tomiko River Bridge on Hwy 11 can be seen submerged in the river. With the exception of these sawn-off timber bents, the original timber structure was completely removed in 1961, after the current steel beam structure was completed at this location.

Left - Previously, Hwy 11 crossed a steel truss bridge at Marten River, which was completed in 1940. The piers of the old Marten River Bridge are still visible today at the water's edge, immediately east of the current highway bridge. The steel truss bridge was demolished in 1990, as soon as the new bridge was finished.

Right - Approaching Tonomo Lake Road on Hwy 11, facing north. At this point, the original route of the Ferguson Highway (Hwy 11) turned towards the left. In 1940, the Jumping Caribou Lake Diversion was completed, opening up a new route for through traffic heading north towards Temagami. This 18 km highway diversion tied into the existing highway at this location. The Jumping Caribou Lake Diversion bypassed a particularly notorious section of the original Ferguson Highway, which was well-known for its tight curves and steep hills.

Left - Rock cut on the Jumping Caribou Lake Diversion on Hwy 11. Obstacles like this were often avoided during the early days of road construction in Northern Ontario. However, as the demand for faster long distance highways became more pronounced, rock obstacles such as this one were simply blasted out of the way in an effort to improve the highway's alignment.

HWY 11 #816 - © Cameron Bevers             HWY 11 #818 - © Cameron Bevers

Left - Facing north along Hwy 11, north of Pan Lake. In addition to improving the alignment of Hwy 11, the completion of the Jumping Caribou Lake Diversion shortened the route between Marten River and Temagami by roughly one mile.
(Photograph taken on August 6, 2011  -  © Cameron Bevers)

Right - Many of the rock cuts on the Jumping Caribou Lake Diversion have not been altered substantially since the highway was first constructed over 70 years ago. Older rock cuts tend to have uneven vertical faces, since construction techniques used at the time did not allow rocks to be blasted with any degree of precision. Newer rock cuts tend to be squared off vertically, because modern highway builders can now blast rocks out of the way with extreme precision.
