King's Highway 5 - www.OntHighways.com

Before downloading, Highway 5 traversed the distance between Highway 2 at Paris, to Highway 2 in Scarborough.  Originally it served as a more northerly, less congested route bypassing many of the communities that Highway 2 ran through the heart of.  Since that time, Highway 5 itself has been almost entirely bypassed, and as such was almost entirely removed from the provincial highway network in 1998.  Only the short section between Highway's 6 and 8 in northern Hamilton was spared from downloading.
