King's Highway 43 -

Highway 43 was a local highway that served east-west movements between the small rural communities of Eastern Ontario.  Highway 43 started at Highway 7 in Perth, progressing through Rideau Country, through Merrickville to Kemptville.  After interchanging with Highway 416, the highway progressed through to Winchester, and eventually to Alexandria at Highway 43.  This part of Eastern Ontario is predominantly rural, and the communities are for the most part based upon local farmers.  Further, east of Winchester, Highway 34 passes through a predominantly French portion of the province.  Highway 43 was downloaded in its entirety on January 1, 1998.

Road Info:  I have driven very little of Highway 43.  It's primarily of use to the residents of the communities that the highway passes through or near to.  The few sections of Highway 43 that I have driven have been pretty standard rural stretches of highway, I haven't seen anything, and have no reason to believe, that their is anything of particular remarkable along the highway.  I understand that Merrickville is quite a scenic little community -- many of the communities that are located along the Rideau Canal system are quite pleasant.  Leeds & Grenville has constructed several roundabout intersections along Highway 43 in Kemptville.  Highway 43 has an 80km/h speed limit through rural areas, lower through urban areas.
