Welcome to the Highway 69 Four-Laning Detail Design Website

The four-laning of Highway 69 is part of a strategic network improvement plan connecting southern and northern Ontario (via both the Highway 69 and Highway 11 corridors), as outlined in the Ministry of Northern Development and Mines Highway 69 Corridor Action Plan.

The recommended alignment for the section of Highway 69 between North of Highway 522 and North of Highway 64 was determined during a Route Planning and Environmental Assessment completed in 2004. The Route Planning and Environmental Assessment Report (RPEAR) and all associated appendices are available in the Reports section of this website.
