King's Highway 45 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 45 was completely downloaded January 1st, 1998, and surprise, surprise was a totally illogical download.  Highway 45 is another one of those short-cut roads for those travelers who wish to avoid busy Highway 115 or busy Highway 37.  Highway 45 has been renamed Northumberland Road 45 and Peterborough Road 45.


King's Highway 45 Shield

  Southern Terminus:  Highway 45 ended in Downtown Cobourg at the Highway 2 junction.

Northern Terminus:  Junction Highway 7 in Norwood

Length:  54.1 km

Multiplexes:  None

Freeway:  No

AADT (1994):  Highest:  7,600 from Highway 401 northerly to Northumberland Road 74;

                             Lowest:  2,400, from Hastings to Norwood.

Status:  Totally downloaded in 1998.  Now known as Northumberland Road 45 and Peterborough Road 45.

Road Info:  Highway 45 is in pretty good shape for its entire length.  The best maintained section is from Highway 401 northerly to north of Baltimore.  Some sections of Highway 45 have actually been improved by Northumberland county since downloading, but I speculate this was probably as a result of funding some counties got for assuming these downloaded roads.
