King's Highway 101 - www.OntHighways.com
Highway 101 is a long highway that spans the Northeastern part of the province. Much of Highway 101 passes through very remote areas of Ontario, where the route sees little traffic. An exception to this is through the Timmins area, where the highway is exceptionally busy. There is not another continuous east-west route through Timmins, so both local and through traffic must utilize Highway 101. While no section of Highway 101 was downloaded in 1997/98, much of the suburban portions of Highway 101 near Timmins were transferred to local jurisdiction and are now covered by a connecting link agreement.
Western Terminus: Junction Highway
17 just west of Wawa
Eastern Terminus: Quebec Route 388 at the Ontario/Quebec Boundary
Multiplexes: 6.4km with Highway 11 near Matheson, and 7.6km with Highway 129 south of Chapleau.
AADT (2002): Highest: 8,300, from Highway 576 east to the Timmins connecting link;
Lowest: 310, from Highway 651 to the Algoma-Sudbury District Boundary.
Road info: Highway 101 is a very long and diverse road that stretches across Northeastern Ontario. Between Wawa and Timmins the highway is very remote and winds through the often rugged Northern Ontario landscape. Between Timmins and Highway 11, the highway is quite busy, is straight, and follows terrain that is reminiscent of some regions of Southern Ontario. East of Matheson, the highway again winds its way through rugged and remote terrain. Much of Highway 101 has a rural speed limit of 80km/h with the exceptions of between Wawa and Highway 547, and between Timmins and Highway 11 where a 90km/h has been posted.
