Right - Facing north along Hwy 400 at Six Mile Lake. The rocky terrain in this area makes this one of the most interesting portions of Hwy 400. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - North span of the Little Go Home Bay Bridge. Newer structures along Hwy 400 are designed to span not only the watercourse but the banks of the watercourse as well. The intention of these enlarged structures is to encourage wildlife to pass beneath the highway rather than cross over it. The risk of vehicular collisions with moose and other large wild animals is a big concern on highways in the northern parts of Ontario. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - A former section of Hwy 69 emerges beside Hwy 400 near Six Mile Lake. Most sections of Hwy 69 south of MacTier were simply twinned in the 1990s to create the new Hwy 400, but some parts of the old highway were bypassed altogether and now serve as access roads. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Facing south along Hwy 400 at MacDonald River. The original Hwy 69 roadway now serves as the northbound Hwy 400 lanes (left), while a new roadway was constructed to serve as the southbound lanes (right). The northbound lanes cross over the MacDonald River via a small concrete box culvert built in the 1950s, which severely restricts the watercourse and does not allow wildlife to cross the highway safely. The new southbound lanes span over the MacDonald River across a steel girder structure, which was completed in 1996. The enlarged southbound structure has no footprint in the riverbed, thereby minimizing the disruption to the watercourse. Environmental considerations such as this are an integral part of all modern highway design in Ontario. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing south along the southbound lanes of Hwy 400 at Go Home Lake Road (Muskoka Road 32 & 38). This new interchange replaced an at-grade intersection in 2005. Traces of the former left-turn lane can be seen in this photo, where the left-hand shoulder widens part-way up the hill. The former at-grade intersection was at the crest of the hill. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Good use was made of the rocky terrain surrounding the new Go Home Lake Road structure. The exposed bedrock allowed the construction of a much shallower bridge abutment at this location. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - End of Hwy 69 near Musquash River in June 2004, facing north towards MacTier. Hwy 400 & Hwy 69 continue northerly towards Parry Sound from this point as a two-lane highway. The two-lane portion of Hwy 69 from the Musquash River to the Moon River will be widened to four lanes by 2008. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Right - Same view in June 2007, showing conversion of Hwy 400 & Hwy 69 to a four-lane highway. Note the completed Musquash River Bridge at left, which will eventually carry southbound traffic only. A new bridge is now under construction for the northbound lanes. See an Enlarged Photo here.
