Right - Junction signs at the end of Hwy 130 at Hwy 61. The control city on Hwy 61 south of Thunder Bay is Duluth, Minnesota. What this sign doesn't tell you is that it is a very lonely 280 km journey to Duluth from here. Duluth is the most distant out-of-province control city signed by the MTO. In fact, Duluth is the only sizeable town or city on either Ontario Hwy 61 or Minnesota Hwy 61, apart from Thunder Bay located at the highway's northern terminus.

Left - Facing north along Hwy 130 approaching the first turn-off near Slate River Valley. At this junction, Hwy 130 briefly turns east for 2 km before resuming its route north towards Rosslyn and the Hwy 11 & Hwy 17 Junction. This jog in the highway's alignment is due to the nearby Kaministiquia River, of which there are only a limited number of crossings in the Thunder Bay area.

Left - Facing south along Hwy 130 from the intersection of Arthur Street and Twin City Crossroad. Note the distance guide sign at right, indicating that it is more than 300 km (185 miles) to Duluth, Minnesota. Although Hwy 130 does not go all the way to Duluth (most of the route is encompassed by Hwy 61), there are no other qualified control cities along this route.

Right - Approaching the intersection of Arthur Street and Twin City Crossroad on Northbound Hwy 130. Until the New Shabaqua Highway opened to traffic, Hwy 130 ended at this intersection at the Hwy 11 & Hwy 17 Junction. When the New Shabaqua Highway opened to traffic and bypassed this area, Hwy 11 & Hwy 17 were rerouted onto the new highway. A section of Former Hwy 11 & Hwy 17 was renumbered as Hwy 130, while the rest of the old highway alignment was renamed Arthur Street. Today, Hwy 130 turns left at this intersection and follows the former route of Hwy 11 & Hwy 17 out to the New Shabaqua Highway, located about 2 km to the west.
