(720x480)     (1440x960)     (2400x1600)

County of Simcoe

Easterly view towards the twin Batteaux River bridges.  Because the width of the median varies as Highway 26-New rounds the curve east of the Poplar Sideroad roundabout, the structures are built on distinct alignments.
Photo taken: March 19th, 2012.

Town of Collingwood

County of Simcoe

Two views looking westerly along Highway 26-New as the highway crosses the Batteaux River.  In the lower photo (the westbound structure) notice how much higher the left-most parapet wall is compared to that of the right.  This is because of the impending curve located just to the east of the structure.  Once completed this bridge will be build up with asphalt and gravel to make up the super-elevation necessary for the impending curve.

Town of Wasaga Beach

County of Simcoe

Easterly view from the Fairgrounds Road overpass.  To the north of the highway lies a storm water management pond.  These ponds filter pollutants out of water and regulate storm water flows into the natural environment reducing the scouring effect that a large storm event can have in a natural watercourse.
