THROWBACK THURSDAY: Highway 69/400

See how our main connection to Toronto has changed over the decades

Here in Greater Sudbury, one of our favourite weekend past-times in road-tripping — especially with the biggest city in Canada only four hours away.

And for that, we use Highway 69, the our direct North-South connection to Toronto.

These days, most of Highway 69 is actually called Highway 400 and is a high-speed four-lane dual carriageway. But some parts haven't gotten there yet.

So, this week, we decided to dig up some photos of our trusty Highway 69/400 to see how it's changed over the decades.

Take a look in this week's episode of Sudbury.com's Throwback Thursday in which, this being the year of Canada's 150th Anniversary, we celebrate a little bit of Greater Sudbury's history.

Thank you, as always, to the Greater Sudbury Archives for supplying some of the photos that appear in this week's episode.
