King's Highway 22 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 22 was an important part of the route from the north part of London to Sarnia.  West of Strathroy, the route purpose was somewhat dwarfed by the completion of Highway 402 in the 1980s.  However it is still a well traveled, and purposeful route between Strathroy and London.  Since being downloaded, the highway has been redesignated as Lambton Road 22, Middlesex Road 22 and Fanshawe Park Road.
