Highway 11 Expansion Continues

Since 2004, the total value of the projects initiated by the McGuinty government to complete the four-laning of Highway 11 between North Bay and Huntsville is $321 million. 

Forty-one kilometres of two-lane highway remains along this corridor.  With today's announcement, construction is now underway on 36 kilometres, with engineering and property acquisition ongoing for the final five kilometres. 

Projects include:

  • A recently completed $53,988,000 contract to construct bridges and service roads between Katrine and Burk's Falls.
  • An ongoing $52,800,000 contract to four-lane nine kilometres of highway between Katrine and Burk's Falls.
  • A recently awarded $69,326,000 contract to expand 10 kilometres of highway between Burk's Falls and Sundridge.
  • An ongoing $20,836,000 contract north of Burk's Falls to construct the interchange rock embankment and upgrade local service roads at Highway 11 and Robins Road/Black Creek Road.  The new Burk's Falls to Sundridge project will complete the work through this area.
  • An ongoing $59,443,000 contract to construct the nine kilometre Sundridge Bypass from south of Highway 124 to Boundary Road.
  • An ongoing $64,785,000 contract to construct the eight kilometre South River Bypass from Boundary Road to north of South River.
  • Engineering and property acquisition continue for the final five kilometres of four-laning, which will expand the Burk's Falls Bypass and complete the corridor in 2012.  The construction tender is scheduled to be advertised in fall 2009.
