Highway 400/69 - New Interchange in Muskoka

This project involves the construction of an interchange and associated ramps on Highway 400 (previously Highway 69) at Muskoka Roads 32 and 38. The project will enhance safety and improve access to the local road network.

Highway 69 - Four-laning through Muskoka

This proposed project is for the widening of Highway 69 between Musquash River and
Tower Road -- the last two-lane section of Highway 69 between Toronto and Parry Sound. The project is part of Ministry of Transportation's long-term transportation plan to provide a four-lane divided highway link between Sudbury and southern Ontario along Highway 69. The project addresses safety and congestion issues.

Highway 69 - Four-laning north of Parry Sound

This project aims to improve safety on Highway 69 north of Parry Sound by creating a four-lane controlled access freeway 3.5 kilometres south of Highway 124 that runs north for 6.3 kilometres. This project also includes constructing two interchanges to maintain access to adjacent roads. The project is part of the long-term transportation plan to provide a four-lane divided highway between Sudbury and southern Ontario along Highway 69. It addresses safety and congestion issues.

Highway 69 - New four-lane bridge south of Sudbury

The proposed project will construct 0.6 kilometres of new four-lane highway, 11.2 kilometres south of Highway 17, near Sudbury. This highway will be on a new alignment, and will bypass the existing Highway 69 to the east. It is part of a larger project to re-align an eight kilometre section of Highway 69. The project will provide an over-pass over a local road and allow for the next phase of the project to be completed.

Four-laning south of Sudbury

The proposed project will construct a two kilometre section of new four-lane highway south of the existing four-lane highway south of Sudbury. It is a part of a larger eight kilometre project to re-align a section of Highway 69.

Highway 17 - Four-laning east of Sault Ste. Marie

The proposed project will construct a new 7.3-kilometre section of four-lane divided highway between the Echo River and Bar River Road as part of a broader plan to construct a by-pass road between Sault Ste. Marie and Bar River. The work includes twin overpass structures at the Huron Central Railway and two intersections.

Highway 11/17 - New Shabaqua

This project involves construction of a new two-lane section of Trans-Canada Highway 11/17 extending from the intersection of the Thunder Bay Expressway and the Harbour Expressway 13 kilometres west to Vibert Road. The project will serve to ease congestion-related problems on Highway 11/17 along the western edge of the City of Thunder Bay. It will enhance safety and the efficiency of the highway that is also a part of the Trans-Canada Highway system by separating traffic related to local business and services from longer distance through-traffic.
