HWY 11 #1191             HWY 11 #1192

NEW Left - Facing north along Hwy 11 towards Gravenhurst at the Trent-Severn Waterway Bridge at Washago in 1970. This photo shows a recently-widened section of the Washago Bypass (Hwy 11), only a few years after it was expanded from two to four lanes. Although this section of Hwy 11 has a median barrier today, it wasn't installed until the mid-1980s. Up until 1984, the highway had a 48-foot undivided four-lane pavement with a narrow painted flush median, as seen here. Apart from Hwy 11 in the Orillia area, this type of flush median treatment never saw widespread use on the Ontario Highway System. Only a handful of other examples were ever built. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken on September 8, 1970.

HWY 11 #1209

NEW Above - Gull Lake Narrows Bridge on Hwy 11 near Gravenhurst in 1970, facing south. It is interesting to note that the northbound and southbound lanes of the Gravenhurst Bypass were not opened simultaneously. Here, northbound traffic can be seen using the structure in the foreground, while construction crews work to finish the southbound lanes of the highway in the background. Southbound traffic on Hwy 11 was still using Old Hwy 11 (now Bethune Drive) through Gravenhurst at the time this photo was taken. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1970.

HWY 11 #1195             HWY 11 #1196

NEW Left - Reconstruction of Hwy 11 west of Hearst, Contract #1969-505. A construction worker walks beside skids of polystyrene sheets, awaiting installation on a trial pavement section. In an effort to minimize seasonal frost heaving, the Department of Highways of Ontario (DHO), and its successor, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC), experimented by using various materials in the road base during highway reconstruction projects in the 1960s and 1970s. At one time, the DHO/MTC was a North American leader in highway and materials engineering research. Government cost-cutting (by all political stripes) and a gradual breakdown of knowledge transfer as "in-house" staff experts retired from the organization eventually took their toll, which greatly diminished Ontario's contributions to various engineering research fields. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken in 1970.

This photo was taken only a few weeks after Ontario's highways were officially converted to Metric measurements. Metric conversion took place province-wide on September 6, 1977 - the Tuesday immediately following the Labour Day Weekend. Educational tabs such as this one were used on highway signs for many years following Metric conversion to remind motorists that the distances were now shown in kilometres, not miles.
