View looking southerly towards Huntsville from the Muskoka Road 3 overpass.  Until 2001 the divided highway ended at Muskoka Road 3.  Since then several multiyear projects have extended the divided highway northerly to (as of 2011) Burk's Falls.  Construction is currently underway to four-lane the remaining two lane sections of Highway 11 between Huntsville and North Bay 11, with work scheduled to be completed by the end of 2012.

Opposing view from the East Waseosa Lake Road overpass in Mellissa.  Highway 11 was routed straight through Melissa due to the close proximity of the CN Railway and environmentally sensitive lands surrounding the Little East River.

Northbound signage for Highway 592.  Highway 592 is a former alignment of Highway 11, by-passed in the 1950s.  Highway 592 begins northerly from the Novar Road interchange only to rejoin the Highway 11 alignment between Emsdale and Katrine.

This view of Highway 11 looks northerly from the Novar Road overpass.  The Novar Road interchange is situated just inside the northern limits of the Muskoka District.  Highway 592 actually enters the Muskoka District for a distance of about 500m; this makes Highway 592 the only secondary highway to exist in an organized upper-tier municipality in the province.

Looking north from the Scotia Road overpass.  Highway 11 curves west around Emsdale at this point.  Notice the clearing in the trees straight ahead of the northbound carriageway.  The former two-lane Highway 11 alignment passed through this clearing en route through Emsdale.

A series of views looking northerly towards the Scotia Road interchange.  The upper (2005) photo shows Highway 11 very much under construction.  In this photo, I am standing on the recently closed pre-2005 alignment of Highway 11.  When the upper photo was taken, two-way traffic had been temporarily diverted onto the future southbound lanes of the Emsdale by-pass so that the future northbound lanes could be completed.  In modern (2011) photos, notice the large retaining wall that has been constructed to separate the southbound off-ramp from an adjacent residential property that is located immediately east of the interchange along Fern Glen Road.  MTO's commitment to building rural parclo interchanges is astounding.

Northerly view from just north of the Scotia Road interchange.  Emsdale Road, the two lane road pictured on the right-side of the photo is the former (pre-2005) alignment of Highway 11 through Emsdale.  Today, Highway 11 skirts along the west side of Emsdale.  The former alignment of Highway 11 through Emsdale rejoins the divided highway at the Highway 518 interchange, some four kilometres ahead.

View looking southerly along along the Emsdale By-pass.  Note the twin high-level watercourse structures in the photo.  The old alignment of Highway 11 (now Emsdale Road) crosses this same watercourse atop but a narrow, low-level concrete culvert.

Two views looking southerly along Highway 11 from the Highway 518 overpass.  The upper (2005) photo was taken shortly after traffic was moved from today's Emsdale Road (the former alignment of Highway 11), to the future southbound lanes of the four-lane highway.  With two-way traffic diverted onto the southbound lanes work was then focused on completing the transitions where the bypass met the former two lane highway alignment.  The lower photo was taken several years after construction had been completed.

Three views looking northerly from both the proposed location of the Highway 592 overpass, from ground level, and the constructed Highway 592 overpass.  The upper (2006) photo was taken shortly after the divided highway was extended through Katrine to this location.  The middle (2009) photo was taken from the completed overpass and shows the graded southbound lanes awaiting pavement.  The 2011 photo shows the completed four-lane highway open to traffic after construction had been completed.

Two views attempting to show how the northern terminus of Highway 592 was disconnected from Highway 11.  The upper photo shows the former directional signage for the Highway 592 intersection prior to the completion of the divided highway.  The lower photo shows how Highway 592 was grade separated from Highway 11, no interchange was constructed at this location.  Instead traffic bound to and from Highway 592 must use either the Highway 518 or the Three Mile Lake Road interchanges.

This photo comparison may be slightly misleading as the older photo covers a section of Highway 11 that was not directly twinned.  North of Katrine -- which is the area on display in both photos -- the divided highway was constructed along a new alignment, generally immediately to the west of the old road.  The former alignment of Highway 11 still exists, relatively unaltered as today's Katrine Road.  Both photos look southerly into Katrine.

A series of views on the northbound approach to the Highway 520 intersection and interchange.  The vantage points along Highway 11 are not identical, however the intentions of all of the photos are the same.  The upper photo shows the Highway 520 intersection and was taken over a year prior to the start of the construction that saw the highway twinned.  The middle shows the approach to the Highway 520 interchange while Highway 11 was still operating as a super-2 freeway.  The lower photo shows the permanent lane configuration with Highway 11 converted to a four lane divided highway.

Views looking southerly along Highway 11 from the Highway 520 overpass.  The pictured Highway 520 interchange was opened to traffic late in 2008, while Highway 11 was still a two-lane highway.  Late in 2010, the southbound carriageway was opened to traffic, completing Highway 11 as a four-lane highway as far north as Burk's Falls.
