HWY 64 #21

NEW Above - Grading and culvert construction on Hwy 64 at the Murdock River, about 2 km east of the Hwy 69 Junction in 1957. Note the original bridge at right, which was bypassed by a straighter highway alignment. The original route of Hwy 64 from Rutter to Sturgeon Falls was narrow and winding, but the highway's alignment was greatly improved during reconstruction projects in the 1950s and 1960s such as this one. Photo taken in 1957.

NEW Left - The Marten River Road near Hwy 64 was a former alignment of the Ferguson Highway which was originally constructed in the 1920s. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
(Photograph taken on August 6, 2011  -  © Cameron Bevers)

NEW Right - Another view of Marten River Road approaching Hwy 64. For a few years in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the Ferguson Highway followed this route. A highway improvement project during the 1930s resulted in a relocation of a short section of the Ferguson Highway at the Marten River Bridge. The relocated route of the Ferguson Highway was bypassed yet again in 1940, when a new steel truss bridge was constructed on Hwy 11 across Marten River about 2 km to the east. This new route of Hwy 11 was part of a major diversion project, which bypassed about 15 km of the old Ferguson Highway. Most of the old Ferguson Highway between Marten River and Tilden Lake was abandoned entirely, but a 3 km section of the route at Marten River became part of Hwy 64 in 1940. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Left - The old Ferguson Highway passes through a portion of Marten River Provincial Park. The old highway is gated off at Hwy 64, just south of the Marten River Bridge. The road hasn't been used by through traffic since the 1930s, when a new diversion was constructed at Marten River. The project resulted in the construction of a new creosoted timber truss bridge on an improved highway alignment. In 1940, Hwy 11 was relocated onto a new alignment and the bypassed section of the Ferguson Highway built in the 1930s became part of Hwy 64. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

NEW Right - Eastern side of the Marten River Bridge on Hwy 64. This single-span steel girder structure was completed in 1977.
