King's Highway 25 - www.OntHighways.com

Before being entirely downloaded in 1998, Highway 25 ran between the QEW in western Oakville northerly to Highway 89 west of Shelburne.  It passed through Milton, Acton and Grand Valley en route.  Though some of the northern portions of Highway 25 were certainly justifiable downloads, the more southern sections carried a significant volume of traffic, and provided significant connections to the communities that the highway passed through.
