King's Highway 10 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 10 connects Mississauga, on the shores of Lake Ontario, to Owen Sound, which is located in Georgian Bay.  Georgian Bay makes up a large part of Lake Huron.  For this reason, much of Highway 10 is named 'Hurontario Street' a clever combination both its terminal lakes.  Most of Highway 10 was spared from downloading, with the exception of the urban section lying within the Mississauga and Brampton Boundaries.

Road Info:  Highway 10 is a great road.  It is, however, very  busy in some spots.  Despite this, I have always found that the highway moves along quite well.  All of highway 10 has pretty much all been recently rehabilitated and is built to the absolute highest standard.
