Highway 7 - Page 3 (Thornhill to Peterborough)

Note:  Highway 7 through York; from the regions western boundary to at least Highway 48 (Main St / Markham Road) is know known as York Road 7 (Highway 7).  It was downloaded June 6th, 1997, only one day before Highway 407 opened, nice coincidence eh?  It is not clear whether the connecting link status was repealed between Highway 48 westerly to 9th Line or not.  That being said the intersection of Highway 7 and Highway 48 still refers the eastern  Highway 7 as an MTO maintained road (as the picture below illustrates.)

Highway 7 is the Central Ontario Route of the Trans-Canada Highway from Highway 12 (north junction) easterly to Ottawa.
