AVOIDING HIGHWAY 400
If you’re heading to Collingwood from the GTA, and you’d like to avoid Highway 400, there are a number of alternate routes you can check out. The Gore Road (County Road 8) and Dixie Road (County Road 4/12/7) will both take you north to Highway 9, where you can join Airport Road just east of Orangeville. Going north on Airport Road will take you right into the main intersection of Stayner, where you can continue north on Highway 26 into Collingwood.
You can also head west on Highway 89 and join up with Airport Road just west of Rosemont, and head north into the main intersection of Stayner, where you can continue north on Highway 26 into Collingwood. Keep in mind there are a number of other festivals taking place in Simcoe County this weekend, and area roads may be busy.
Highway 26 has several roundabouts in the Collingwood area. A roundabout is a circular intersection where two or more roads meet. Traffic circulates through them counter-clockwise, to the right of a centre island. All entering vehicles must yield to traffic already in the roundabout. For more information on roundabouts, visit the Ministry of Transportation website. http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/ontario-511/roundabouts.shtml
