Right - Tree-lined section of Hwy 11 & Hwy 71, about 2 km west of Fort Frances. This wonderful stretch of highway extends for about 4 km west of Fort Frances. It is very rare to see trees lining a King's Highway today. Most roadside trees were cut down in the 1950s and 1960s, as part of highway "improvement" projects. While the trees are a potential collision hazard, they greatly enhance the aesthetics of the road environment. The placement of a steel guide rail along the road would prevent the possibility of tree collisions, while still preserving the pleasant atmosphere of this stretch of highway. It is very unfortunate that this strategy was not employed decades earlier on other Ontario highways, before millions of roadside trees were stripped and extirpated from the landscape in a hasty approach to improving highway safety.
