King's Highway 16 - www.OntHighways.com
Highway 16 was at one time the major route from the 401 to Ottawa in Eastern Ontario. In the late-1990s much of Highway 16 was twinned and converted into a new fully-controlled access highway (Hwy 416). Highway 416 bypasses Highway 16 in the vicinity of Highway 401, as high speed ramps were constructed linking the 416 to Highway 401 west. The short section of Highway 16 was spared surrounding 401 due to its connection to the USA via the Prescott-Ogdensburg Bridge, and to Highway 401 itself, as Highway 416 only meets Highway 401 at a partial interchange. Highway 416 also bypassed a section of former Highway 16 near Ottawa. This section of bypassed Highway 16 reverted back to local control after the 416 was completed, and is now known as Ottawa Road 73.
