King's Highway 28 - www.OntHighways.com

Current Route Information

Before downloading, Highway 28 ran from Highway 2 in Port Hope northerly to Bancroft.  From Bancroft, Highway 28 turned east heading towards Highway 41 at Denbigh.  In 1997, the section of Highway 28 from Highway 7 northerly to Highway 134 was downloaded.  28's routing through Peterborough was very redundant, and this transfer was very logical.  In 1998 the remainder of Highway 28 south of Peterborough was also transferred.  These transfers left Highway 28's southern terminus at the rather illogical junction of Highway 134.  This situation was rectified in May of 2003 when all of Highway 134 was re-designated as Highway 28.  Highway 28's new southern terminus is at Highway 7, a few kilometres east of Peterborough.

                             Lowest: 600, from Highway 514 easterly to Highway 41.

Road Info:  Between Port Hope and Bancroft, Highway 28 is for the most part in excellent condition (with a few sub-par sections through Young's Point and Paudash).  The highway's (now defunct) routing through Downtown Peterborough is also very redundant.  At times east of Bancroft,  Highway 28 resembles a Secondary Highway in appearance and standards much more then a primary King's Highway.  Rural sections of Highway 28 are posted at 80km/h
