Left - Approaching the northern terminus of Hwy 612 at the Hwy 69 Junction south of Gordon Bay. Historically, Hwy 612 used to be part of Hwy 69. From the time the highway was first established in 1937 up until 1956, Hwy 69 used to pass right through MacTier. As part of the Trans-Canada Highway construction in the 1950s, Hwy 69 was relocated onto a brand-new and much-improved alignment between the Gordon Bay area and Foot's Bay. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing north along Hwy 69 towards Parry Sound at the Hwy 612 Junction. This highway junction marks the northern end of the 9 km MacTier Diversion. When this diversion of Hwy 69 was completed and opened to traffic in 1956, it shortened the highway distance between Foot's Bay and Parry Sound by about 3 km. See an Enlarged Photo here.

Left - Facing south along Hwy 69 towards Foot's Bay at the Hwy 612 Junction. From this vantage point, it is very obvious that Hwy 69 at one time continued straight ahead towards MacTier. In addition to shortening the highway distance between Foot's Bay and Parry Sound, the MacTier Diversion also bypassed four at-grade railway crossings on the original Hwy 69 route. Had it not been for the outbreak of World War II, the MacTier Diversion between here and Foot's Bay likely would have been completed by the early 1940s. See an Enlarged Photo here.
