NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 11 near Val Gagne, about 10 km north of the Hwy 101 Junction. This section of Hwy 11 is actually a relocation of the original Hwy 11 route. When the Monteith Diversion was completed and opened to traffic in 1957, it bypassed almost 20 miles of the original 1937 alignment of Hwy 11 between Matheson and Porquis Junction. The Monteith Diversion created a new through highway, which bypassed several towns along the original highway's route, including Val Gagne. The old route of Hwy 11 was briefly known as Hwy 11B, but it later became Hwy 626. Today, Old Hwy 11 is a municipal road. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Eastern side of the Driftwood River Bridge on Hwy 11 & Hwy 577 near Monteith. This structure consists of a single Warren-type steel deck truss span and two steel beam approach spans. This bridge was built on the Monteith Diversion, a long realignment of Hwy 11 which bypassed the communities of Matheson, Monteith and Porquis Junction. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Abandoned alignment of Hwy 11 at the Warrick Lake Picnic Area south of Cochrane. The new road alignment is on the embankment at left. This spot marks the beginning of a 14 km abandoned section of the original Hwy 11, which was bypassed in 1963. This old alignment comes out at Hwy 7036 in Newmarket Township. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Hwy 11 approaching the 49th Parallel Road, just south of Cochrane. As the name suggests, this concession road follows the 49th Parallel. This particular degree of latitude is significant because it marks the southern boundary of most of Canada's western provinces. However, the most populated regions of Ontario are situated well below this degree of latitude. Toronto, for example, lies over 600 km south of the 49th Parallel. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
