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 the Go Home Lake Road (Muskoka Road 32 & Muskoka Road 38) Interchange in 2007, shortly after completion. This new grade-separated interchange was constructed in 2005 to replace an old at-grade intersection on the divided highway. Traces of the former left-turn lane can be seen in this photo, where the left-hand shoulder widens out part-way up the hill. The former at-grade intersection was situated at the crest of this hill. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

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

Left - Facing east across the Go Home Lake Road Overpass on Hwy 400 west of Bala. As the route marker assembly at right indicates, Muskoka Road 32 (Go Home Lake Road) ends at this interchange and becomes Muskoka Road 38 (Former Hwy 660) east of Hwy 400. Up until the 1990s, Muskoka Road 32 intersected with Hwy 69 (now known as Hwy 400) about 700 metres to the north of Muskoka Road 38. As a result of the Hwy 69 expansion to four lanes, both Muskoka Road 32 and Muskoka Road 38 were realigned to consolidate these two intersections into a single crossing. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Go Home Lake Road Overpass over the southbound lanes of Hwy 400. Due to the median width here, there are two independent structures which carry Go Home Lake Road across Hwy 400. This single-span concrete girder structure was completed in 2005. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - View of Hwy 400 from the Go Home Lake Road Overpass, facing north towards MacTier. Traces of the old at-grade intersection with Muskoka Road 32 can be seen just before the large rock cut in the distance. Until the 1990s, Muskoka Road 32 intersected with the two-lane Hwy 69 which now forms the northbound carriageway. Once Hwy 69 was twinned with a new southbound carriageway, the old at-grade intersection was closed off and Muskoka Road 32 realigned so that it crossed Hwy 69 at a common at-grade intersection with Muskoka Road 38. The at-grade intersection was removed several years later, when a grade-separated interchange was constructed at this location. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing south towards Port Severn along the southbound lanes of Hwy 400 at the Go Home Lake Road Overpass. The Go Home Lake Road Interchange ramps are in a "Parclo A-B" configuration, with all four interchange ramps situated on the southern side of the grade separation. Southbound Hwy 400 traffic coming from MacTier must exit from the freeway via an inner loop ramp at right in order to reach Go Home Lake Road. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - View of Hwy 400 facing north along the northbound lanes towards MacTier from the Go Home Lake Road Overpass. This roadway formed the original two-lane Hwy 69 before the highway was twinned in the 1990s. A second carriageway was built along the western side of the existing highway to carry all southbound highway traffic. Once completed, the existing two-lane highway was converted to carry northbound traffic only. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - View of the Go Home Lake Road (Muskoka Road 32 & Muskoka Road 38) Interchange on Hwy 400 west of Bala. The Hwy 400 & Hwy 69 corridor is one of two major trucking routes which link Southern Ontario to Northern Ontario - the other route being Hwy 11. Prior to the completion of the Georgian Bay Route of the Trans-Canada Highway to Sudbury during the 1950s, all traffic bound for Northern Ontario had to use Hwy 11 via North Bay. The completion of Hwy 400 & Hwy 69 along the eastern shores of Georgian Bay shortened the highway distance between Toronto and Sudbury by about 50 miles (80 km). See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Left - Facing east towards Bala on Muskoka Road 38 (Former Hwy 660) from the Hwy 400 Interchange. Secondary Highway 660 was established as a provincial highway link between the Trans-Canada Highway's Georgian Bay Route and Hwy 69 (later known as Hwy 169) in Bala in 1965. Like all of Ontario's Secondary Highways located in the District of Muskoka, jurisdiction over Hwy 660 was eventually transferred from the province to the District Municipality. Provincial jurisdiction over Hwy 660 ceased effective May 1, 1982. Bala lies about 18 km ahead. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - 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.

Above - 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.
