King's Highway 87 -   O N T   H I G H W A Y S

Highway 87 was yet another one of those illogical (cost-cutting) downloads.  87 connects Highway 86 to Highway 9 (via a small jog on Highway 89 near Harriston).  It was a good connection from Lake Huron for those who wanted to travel East-West without the strong north-south bias that is seen on Highway 86.
