This view looks northerly from the Telford Line cross-over.  The curve immediately visible north of Telford Line has somewhat of a kinked alignment.  Highway 11 was four-laned throughout the 1960s, following an existing alignment where the numerous abutting properties somewhat limited the ability of MTO's highway engineers to correct all vertical and horizontal curves along the highway.

Southerly view along Highway 11 from the Sparrow Lake Road overpass.  Notice that Highway 11 has gravel outside shoulders in the vicinity of the Sparrow Lake Road intersections.  Gavel shoulders along RIRO sections of Highway 11 hamper the operations of the expressway.  Traffic exiting or entering the expressway at private driveways is forced to slow and accelerate in the right-hand (driving) lane of the expressway, rather than along a paved shoulder.

Northerly view from the South Sparrow Lake Road overpass.  Because Highway 11 was never by-passed with a controlled access highway, many of the 1950s era roadside motels and restaurants still stand alongside the highway.

Signage advising drivers that they can reach pretty well any destination from this intersection.  Highway 11 runs in close proximity to Lake Couchiching in the vicinity of this photograph so many of the streets listed on this signage are cottage access roads.

View looking southerly from the Highway 169 overpass along Highway 11.  The southern Highway 11/169 ramp is a hybrid between a trumpet interchange and a typical RIRO interchange.  Notice the positive guidance measures directing traffic around the loop ramp on the right hand side of the photo.  Click here for an alternate view from this overpass, taken in June, 2005.

Advanced signage for the Highway 169 interchange.  Notice that the signage used on Highway 11 is not the typical aluminum extruded signage that would normally be used on freeways.  Signage along the RIRO portions of Highway 11 is more indicative to what would be used on a standard 2-lane highway.

Highway 11 looking north from the Coopers Falls Road towards Severn Bridge south of Gravenhurst.  For several decades prior to the 1950s, Highway 11/169 was the only highway to cross the Sever River. Until Highway 103 (today's Highway 69/400) was constructed northerly from Wabaushene through to MacTier, Highway 11 was the only road to link southern Ontario the Muskoka Region and beyond.  Click here for an alternate view from this overpass, taken in June, 2005.

Views of both sides of the bridge that carries Highway 11 overtop of the Severn River.  Highway 11 ended at the Severn River until 1937.  Prior to 1937, all roads in northern Ontario were maintained by the Department of Northern Development and Mines and were unnumbered.

Diagramical signage approaching the northern Highway 11/169 interchange.  Notice that the speed limit drops to 80km/h just before the interchange.  This speed limit drops due to the rather sharp right-hand curve just beyond the off-ramp.  At Highway 169, Highway 11 curves easterly as it swings around Gull Lake on the Gravenhurst By-pass.

View looking northerly along Highway 11/169 at the northern interchange between the two highways.  Notice the diagramical sign is placed at the beginning of the ramp in this photo rather then in advance of the interchange.  The diagramical sign was erected late in June of 2006 at the start of the off-ramp but was quickly moved to the existing gantry downstream of the interchange.
