HWY 811 #9             HWY 811 #8

Left - Hwy 811 is primarily a forest access road. The eastern portions of this highway are frequently used by logging companies to reach their forest harvesting areas, and thus the road is well maintained. Beyond the areas which are being actively harvested, Hwy 811 is in a relatively poor state of repair. The area shown in this photo was last harvested in the 1980s, and therefore, the road sees virtually no traffic anymore. The highway near Weaver River is becoming quite overgrown with weeds. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

HWY 811 #2             HWY 811 #3

Left - The western terminus of Hwy 811 is at a one-lane bridge over the Weaver River. In the mid-1970s, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MTC) studied a possible extension of Hwy 811 from this point westerly to join with Hwy 599 at Savant Lake. However, the highway connection was never built, and Hwy 811 has ended at this remote location at the Weaver River since 1977. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
