Looking northerly along the Port Severn Road overpass towards the Severn River bridge.  Starting in 2015, the northbound Port Severn structures will be replaced.  Because of high volume of traffic that uses Highway 400 during peak periods, the southbound structure will be widened and will permanently carry traffic in both directions.  The existing northbound structure and approaching highway alignment will be respectfully demolished and abandoned.  Click here for this same view taken in June, 2005.

Advanced signage for the northern Port Severn interchange.  Before the District Municipality of Muskoka was formed in the early 1970s, today's Muskoka Road 5 was designated as Secondary Highway 501.  Unlike most of the other secondary highway numbers used within Muskoka and Haliburton, the Highway 501 designation has never been recycled and used on another, newer highway elsewhere in the province.

Two views looking northerly as Highway 400 crosses the McDonald River.  Unlike most of the more recent sections of highway twinning for the construction of Highway 400, when Highway 69 was twinned in the 1990s across the McDonald River bridge, the existing lanes of Highway 69 were not extensively reconstructed as part of the project.  Therefore, the 1950s era box culvert that now carries the northbound lanes was not replaced with a longer structure such as the one that was constructed during the 1990s for the southbound lanes.  This gives the highway a unique highway geometry through the area.

Northbound view approaching the off-ramp to Muskoka Roads 32 and 38. For several years after Highway 400 was extended to the Musquash River, the divided highway met Muskoka Road 32 and 38 at an at-grad intersection.  The Muskoka Road 32/38 interchange encroaches Whata Mohawk Territory, and the interchange could not be constructed until a legal arrangement had been finalized between the MTO and the first nation.
