Historical King's Highway 12B (Orillia) Photographs

HWY 11 #928

Above - Facing south along the Orillia Bypass (Hwy 11) at the Hwy 12 & Hwy 12B Cloverleaf in 1965. This early photo shows the original eight-ramp cloverleaf at Hwy 12 & Hwy 12B (Coldwater Road) on the Orillia Bypass. The completion of the cloverleaf in 1956 allowed through traffic on Hwy 11 to access both Hwy 12 West to Midland and Downtown Orillia via Hwy 12B (Coldwater Road). Note the old British-American Oil fuel tanker truck heading southbound towards Barrie in the background. The Hwy 12 & Hwy 12B Cloverleaf was removed during a highway reconstruction project in 2002. It was replaced with a standard six-ramp "Parclo A-4" Interchange. Although it was rehabilitated as part of this reconstruction project, the original 1956 overpass structure still stands today. See an Enlarged Photo here. Photo taken in October, 1965.
