From the www.thekingshighway.ca:
Photo from the Gull Lake Narrows Bridge on Hwy 11 near Gravenhurst in 1970, facing south. It is interesting to note that the northbound and southbound lanes of the Gravenhurst Bypass were not opened simultaneously. Here, northbound traffic can be seen using the structure in the foreground, while construction crews work to finish the southbound lanes of the highway in the background. Southbound traffic on Hwy 11 was still using Old Hwy 11 (now Bethune Drive) through Gravenhurst at the time this photo was taken.
