King's Highway 89 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 89 is a long highway that stretches through the central portion of Southwestern Ontario.  Before downloading it ran from Highway 23 just west of Palmerston to Highway 11 at Fennel.  In 1998, the eastern 5.4km of Highway 89 was downloaded concurrent with the downloading of Highway 11 south of Crown Hill.  This decommissioned section of highway was designated as Simcoe Road 89.  In 2004, Highway 89 was shortened once again.  This time a 9.7km section of Highway 89, west of the Highway 9 junction in Harriston was re-designated as Highway 23.  This change improved the logic the areas numbering system since Highway 23 and Highway 89 had shared a common terminus at a county road junction for a number of years due to a jurisdictional transfer that took place along Highway 23.
