King's Highway 7B (Lindsay) -

Highway 7B was a long business route connecting Highway 7 at Fowlers Corners to Highway 7 at the east end of the 115 through Peterborough.  The entire route of Highway 7B was downloaded in 1998, with all signage removed.  While the province probably didn't need to maintain any segment of Highway 7B as they had prior to 1998, Peterborough is a confusing city to drive through and benefited from a route numbering system.
