A series of views looking northerly along Highway 11 from the Highway 520 overpass south of Burk's Falls.  The Highway 520 interchange was opened to traffic for two years in advance of the completion of the four lane highway.  The four lane highway was completed in 2010 to a point just north of the Highway 520 interchange.  The four lane highway will be extended to south of Sundridge by the fall of 2012, completing Highway 11 as a four lane highway between the Highway 400 interchange north of Barrie to North Bay.

This view looks southerly from about 500m north of the Highway 520 interchange.  The four lane highway ended at this location between 2010 and 2011.  Shortly after this photo was taken (prior to the end of June 2012), southbound traffic was moved onto the completed southbound travel lanes, and work began to remove this transfer.

A series of views looking southerly towards the former Ontario Street at-grade intersection.  The rock cut that I stood on for the 2004 photo was obliterated during the highway twinning; the 2012 photos were taken from a rock cut on the opposite side of the road from the 2004 photo.  Shortly after the 2012 photos were taken, the Ontario Street at-grade intersection was permanently closed; replaced by an interchange located immediately to the north of the former intersection.
