Highway 69 expansion opens in Northern Ontario

FRENCH RIVER, ONT. — The 14-kilometre expansion of Highway 69, which includes the widening of the highway from two to four lanes, recently opened in the French River area in Northern Ontario, the Ontario Government announced.

The new lanes on the highway extend from north of Highway 522 to north of Highway 607 and the expansion also includes two new interchanges. Highway 69 is a key corridor in the region and part of the Trans-Canada Highway.

The Highway 69 widening is part of a project to widen a total of 152 kilometres of Highway 69 from Parry Sound to Sudbury, indicates a release, adding the final 68-kilometre section of widening between French River and Parry Sound is in the engineering and property acquisition phase.

“The opening of the new Highway 69 lanes is a gamechanger for French River and Sudbury residents,” said Minister of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry and Minister of Indigenous Affairs Greg Rickford, in a statement. “By expanding this section of Highway 69, we will see improved safety and traffic flow in the region. The expansion will also create jobs and boost economic growth in Northern Ontario.”
