King's Highway 115 -

Highway 115 serves as the four-lane connection between Peterborough and points Oshawa westerly.  Between Highway 35 and Peterborough, Highway 115 is a 4-lane freeway that was largely completed in the early 1990s.  South of Highway 35, Highway 115 is a RIRO expressway.  Its routing was changed slightly post provincial downloading:  A small section of Highway 115 lying in Peterborough along The Parkway was downloaded in April 1997; at that time Highway 115 ended at the Parkway interchange along the Peterborough bypass sharing a common terminus with the eastern segment of Highway 7.  In July 2003 Highway 115 was extended from the Parkway interchange to the northeast end of the Peterborough bypass.  Highway 7 is co-designated with Highway 115 for the length of this extension.
