O N T (King's Highway 83) H I G H W A Y S
Highway 83 can be thought of both as a logical download and an illogical one. Being such a short highway that does not connect to any major community is why can be considered a logical download. This however is not how I feel about Highway 83, Highway 83 also connects Highway 23 to Highway 21 which basically connects all points north east on 23 to Grand Bend (a major tourist destination) and Sarnia via Highway 21/402 which in my opinion warrants Highway 83 to be provincially controled.
Western Terminus: Junction Highway 21 a
few kilometres north of Grand Bend
Eastern Terminus: At Highway 23 junction a few kilometres west of Fullarton in Perth County
Length: 41.8 km (1997)
Status: Entirely downloaded. New names are Huron Road 83 and Perth Road 20.
Road Info: Highway 83 is extremely nice between Highway 21 and Highway 4 with wide smooth pavement. East of Highway 4, 83 is still very nice but is built to older standards, when pavement widths were narrower.
