King's Highway 7A -

Highway 7A is a very effective alternate to Highway 7 via Lindsay.  Highway 7A passes south of Lake Scugog, via Port Perry, shaving 35km off the Manchester to Peterborough route compared to Highway 7.  Highway 7A was not downloaded in any way in 1997, or 1998 though some of the eastern most segment of highway was redesignated as Highway 7 to improve Peterborough's numbering scheme.
