Left - Historical plaque beside Hwy 11 in Latchford commemorating the completion of the Ferguson Highway. The Ferguson Highway was a Northern Ontario Trunk Road which was largely constructed and administered by the Department of Northern Development in the 1920s. The completion of this new road link in 1927 provided the first continuous road access to New Ontario from the North Bay area. The route was named after George Howard Ferguson, who promoted development and investment in Ontario's North throughout his long political career. Ferguson most notably served as Ontario's Premier between 1923 and 1930. It was during this period when the majority of the Ferguson Highway was constructed. In the late 1930s, the Department of Northern Development was amalgamated with the Department of Highways. The entire route of the Ferguson Highway was officially designated as King's Highway 11 in 1937, upon amalgamation of the two departments. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - The abandoned route of Hwy 11 north of Latchford descends into a deep sag curve before disappearing underneath a rock fill below the current highway. The yellow pavement markings seen on the old highway in the foreground are not original. In all likelihood, this abandoned section of Hwy 11 was used by highway maintenance crews to test line painting equipment in recent decades. Ontario did not start using yellow centreline markings until the early 1970s, long after this section of the highway was closed off to traffic. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - The northbound passing lane on Hwy 11 ends just as a southbound passing lane also ends. This type of passing lane configuration is known as a "tail-to-tail" passing lane treatment. Passing lanes on Ontario's highways are always striped so that they develop from the left-hand side (from the highway's centreline) at the entrance to the passing lane and become the continuous "away" lane at the exit from the passing lane. The right-hand lane always drops from the right-hand side of the highway at the exit from a passing lane, as illustrated in this photo. Passing lanes therefore differ from the less-commonly seen truck climbing lane, which always both develop and drop from the right-hand side of the highway. Truck climbing lanes are never signed as passing lanes. They merely serve as an auxiliary lane on steep highway grades for trucks to use if they wish to do so. The start of the Coleman Township Diversion can be seen in the far distance at right, along with a now-abandoned alignment of Hwy 11 that curves off to the left up the hill. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Start of the Coleman Township Diversion on Hwy 11, facing north towards New Liskeard. About 2 1/2 miles of the original route of Hwy 11 was bypassed between Latchford and Cobalt during a highway improvement project carried out in the late 1940s. A section of abandoned pavement can be seen at left, where the old highway disappears off into the forest. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - The abandoned section of Hwy 11 curves to the left away from the relocated Hwy 11 seen at right. The old asphalt pavement seen here was one of the New Liskeard area's earliest paved highways. An asphalt pavement was laid along Hwy 11 between New Liskeard and Latchford in 1936-1937. The old asphalt has preserved remarkably well for its age. Even the old white highway centreline can still be faintly seen, which hasn't been repainted since through traffic last used this highway in 1948. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - The abandoned Hwy 11 alignment between Cobalt and Latchford emerges high above the current route of Hwy 11. The old road was closed off to through traffic in 1948 once the relocated route of Hwy 11 (the Coleman Township Diversion) was completed and opened to traffic. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing north along Hwy 11 towards New Liskeard approaching Lorrain. The Coleman Township Diversion seen here was constructed in 1947-1948, as part of a broader construction program carried out by the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO) to straighten, improve and modernize the route of Hwy 11 through Northeastern Ontario.

NEW Right - Approaching the Hwy 11B Junction on Hwy 11 at Lorrain, facing north towards New Liskeard. At one time, Hwy 11 curved to the right and followed what is now Hwy 11B into the "Tri-Town" area of Cobalt, Haileybury and New Liskeard. All three of these towns were bypassed by a new route for Hwy 11 in the early 1960s, which can be seen continuing straight ahead at this highway junction. Note the oversized Hwy 11 route marker at the junction, which reinforces the fact that Hwy 11 follows the bypass. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - Green guide sign marking the Hwy 11B Junction on Hwy 11 south of Cobalt. Following the completion of the Tri-Town Bypass in 1963, the former route of Hwy 11 through the Tri-Town area was renumbered as Hwy 11B, so that it served as a signed "Business Route" through the three bypassed towns. Over the years, Ontario has had more than a dozen different Hwy 11B Business Routes signed through various towns. Only two Hwy 11B routes still exist today. One in located in Cobalt and the other in located in Atikokan. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Facing south along Hwy 11 towards Latchford from the Hwy 11B Junction at Lorrain. At left, a channelized right-turn ramp carries Cobalt-bound traffic on northbound Hwy 11 onto northbound Hwy 11B. The mining headframe beside Hwy 11 at left serves as a reminder of Cobalt's grander early days as a famous mining district. Silver was discovered near Cobalt in 1903, which triggered a frenzied stampede of mining prospectors to this area in the early decades of the 20th Century. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - View of the Tri-Town Bypass (Hwy 11) facing north from the Hwy 11B Junction at Lorrain. A 20 km bypass of Cobalt, Haileybury and New Liskeard was completed and opened to traffic in September 1963, which allowed long-distance through traffic on Hwy 11 to quickly bypass the Tri-Town area. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - At right, the old route of Hwy 11 emerges from the forest. The northernmost portion of the old highway's alignment through Coleman Township is now known as Ferguson Road, reflecting that this was once part of the old Ferguson Highway (Hwy 11). The old highway can be driven for about 1 km west of Hwy 11, after which it becomes impassable. This section of Old Hwy 11 was bypassed in 1948 by the Coleman Township Diversion. Jurisdiction over the former route of Hwy 11 (Ferguson Road) reverted from the province to the Township of Coleman in January, 1955. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - View of the Tri-Town Bypass (Hwy 11) as it meanders its way northwards around Cobalt, about 4 km north of the Hwy 11B Junction. The completion of the Tri-Town Bypass in 1963 reduced the highway distance between North Bay and Cochrane by several miles. The new route for Hwy 11 significantly reduced travel times for through traffic, as the old route of Hwy 11 through the Tri-Town area was impossibly slow. This was particularly true of Cobalt, where the winding streets and tight intersection corners proved to be rather troublesome for large trucks to negotiate. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Up until 2003, the intersecting road was known as Hwy 11B. The old route of Hwy 11B and Hwy 65 through Downtown New Liskeard was discontinued in 2003. The current route of Hwy 65 follows the Tri-Town Bypass concurrently with Hwy 11 and a short section of Former Hwy 11B at the northern entrance to New Liskeard. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Junction of Hwy 65 East (Formerly Hwy 11B) at the Tri-Town Bypass. From here, traffic can turn right and follow Hwy 11 North towards Cochrane or turn left and follow Hwy 11 South towards North Bay. Although unmarked, the route of Hwy 65 turns left and briefly follows the Tri-Town Bypass on its route west towards Elk Lake. This is the first signalized intersection along Hwy 11 since the highway departed from North Bay nearly 160 km to the south. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - General view of the Hwy 11 & Hwy 65 East Junction on the Tri-Town Bypass in New Liskeard, facing south. The Tri-Town Bypass can be seen curving away in the distance. Historically, the route of Hwy 11 went right through Downtown New Liskeard, as well as nearby Haileybury and Cobalt. The old route of Hwy 11 was very awkward and had numerous intersections and turns which were difficult for trucks to negotiate. A new 19 km bypass around the three towns was built in the early 1960s. The new Tri-Town Bypass was officially opened to traffic on September 16, 1963. The new bypass shortened the highway distance between North Bay and Cochrane by about 7 km. The old route of Hwy 11 through the three towns was renumbered as Hwy 11B, although the northernmost part of Hwy 11B was recently renumbered as Hwy 65. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
