Left - Historical plaque beside Hwy 11 in Latchford commemorating the completion of the Ferguson Highway. The Ferguson Highway was a Northern 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.

Right - Approaching New Liskeard on Hwy 11, just south of the Hwy 65 West Junction. The flat fertile farmland which suddenly appears on the horizon at New Liskeard surprises many people travelling Hwy 11, because it is such a dramatic change from the area to the south, which is quite rugged and rocky. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - General view of the Hwy 11 and Hwy 65 West Junction near New Liskeard. This highway junction is grade-separated, but the two highways are joined together by a single connector ramp. The Hwy 11 Connector Ramp is not fully channelized, so the junction is not really a proper interchange. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 65 towards Elk Lake from the Hwy 65 Underpass. The junction of Hwy 11 and Hwy 65 was obviously not grade separated because of excessive traffic volumes. The surrounding topography made it virtually impossible for the two highways to meet at-grade, so a grade separation was constructed.

Left - Junction of the Hwy 11 Connector Ramp and Hwy 65 near New Liskeard. Until recently, Hwy 65 continued straight ahead through Downtown New Liskeard, but the highway's route was changed in 2003 so that Hwy 65 turned left at this intersection and followed the Tri-Town Bypass (Hwy 11) instead. However, as seen in this photo, there is no indication at the Hwy 11 Connector Ramp that Hwy 65 actually continues any further east.

Left - Western side of the Wabi River Bridge on Hwy 11 & Hwy 65. The trapezoidal-shaped continuous steel plate girder superstructure is supported on two concrete piers situated on the river banks. The structure therefore has no footprint in the water.

Right - Approaching the Hwy 65 East Junction on the Tri-Town Bypass. At this junction, Hwy 11 & Hwy 65 part ways after sharing a short concurrent route along the Tri-Town Bypass. The route of Hwy 65 turns right at this junction and heads east towards New Liskeard and Notre-Dame-du-Nord, Quebec, while Hwy 11 continues straight ahead towards Cochrane. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Green guide sign marking the Hwy 65 Junction on northbound Hwy 11 near New Liskeard. The northbound turn lane to Hwy 65 East is channelized. 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 - Green guide sign for Hwy 11 at the Hwy 65 East Junction in New Liskeard. There are no signs at the intersection guiding traffic to the western leg of Hwy 65, even though Hwy 65 continues west from this junction via a short concurrent routing with Hwy 11 South. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

(Photograph taken on August 3, 2012  -  © Cameron Bevers)

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.

Left - Facing south along Hwy 11 towards the start of the Tri-Town Bypass at the Hwy 65 East Junction in New Liskeard. Prior to the construction of the Tri-Town Bypass in the early 1960s, Hwy 11 continued straight ahead into Downtown New Liskeard. The original highway alignment followed the hydro pole line seen at left. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
