King's Highway 9 - www.OntHighways.com

At the height of Highway 9's modern length, it ran through the Midwestern part of Ontario between Highway 21 at Kincardine to Highway 11 at Newmarket.  In 1998, Highway 9 was (very illogically, in the webmasters opinion) cut into two distinct segments as the central sections (from Harriston to Orangeville) were transferred to local control.  Adding insult to injury, both Wellington and Dufferin County designated Highway 9 as County Road 109, which fails to provide a consistent numbering between the two disconnected portions of The King's Highway 9.  Later, in the Fall of 1999, another small section of Highway 9 was transferred, this time York Region.  This leaves the current eastern terminus of Highway 400 at the Jane Street intersection, just east of the Highway 400 interchange.


Old Style Highway 9 Shield

  Western Terminus:  On the Kincardine bypass -- junction Highway 21

Eastern Terminus:  Pre-1997: Junction Highway 11 (Yonge Street) in Newmarket
                                       Current: Highway 400 interchange

Discontinuity:  Highway 9 is discontinuous from Highway 23/89 in Harriston to Highway 10 in Orangeville.  The downloaded section has been designated as Wellington and Dufferin Road 109.

Length:  Pre-1997: 191.8km

Multiplexes:  Currently none, however, before downloading there was a 13.4km multiplex with Highway 4 near Walkerton.  Also prior to downloading there was a multiplex with Highway 25, and a short "threeplex" in Orangeville with both Highways 10 and 24; this made up one of Ontario's four three-way multiplexes

Freeway: No

AADT (2002):  Highest: 26,600, from Highway 400 to Jane Street;

                             Lowest: 2,000, from Highway 21 to Highway 4-South.

Road Info:  The post downloading areas of Highway 9 (the area I have traveled) are all excellent roads with nice wide and smooth pavement.  Their is one exception to this west of Highway 4 (Grey Road 4) where the pavement is cracking and is only in fair condition as apposed to excellent.  The eastern section of highway 9 is laden with passing lanes, and though very busy works very well.  East of Highway 400, Highway 9 has been constructed as a 5-lane cross-section.
