King's Highway 58 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 58 is a short but very important north-south highway that serves the Niagara Peninsula.  Before downloading the highway ran from Highway 3 in Port Colborne, northerly through Welland to Highway 406 in the north end of Thorold.  In 1997/98 Highway 58 was carved into two distinct segments, as the urban portion of Highway 58 through Welland was transferred to local authorities.  The transfer of the mid-section of Highway 58 is fairly sensible since its routing through Welland was redundant since being bypassed by Highways 140 and 406.


Oversized King's Highway 58 Crown

  Southern Terminus:  Junction Highway 3 in the west end of Port Colborne

Northern Terminus:  At the Highway 406 interchange in Thorold.

Discontinuity:  In 1997/98 Highway 58 was decommissioned from Highway 58A northerly, through Welland, to the eastern Highway 20 junction.  This resulted in a two distinct segments of Highway 58.

Length:  Pre 1998: 32.9 km.  Currently: 14.7 km

Multiplexes:  Currently there are no multiplexes along Highway 58.  Before downloading there was a 3.3 km multiplex with Highway 20, and a 3.7  km multiplex with Highway 406.

Freeway: Highway 58 is a freeway from Thorold Stone Road westerly (northerly) to the Highway 406 interchange

AADT (2002):  Highest: 25,700 from Collier Street westerly (northerly) to the Highway 406 interchange in Thorold;

                             Lowest:  6,200 from Highway 20 northerly to Beaverdams Road.

Road Info: All of the current length of Highway 58 is presently in good condition, with light to moderate traffic volumes.  The highways routing through Welland (downloaded in 1998) was very redundant, and as such, was a logical transfer.  Rural speed limits along Highway 58 are posted at 80km/h.
