King's Highway 88 -

Highway 88 was completely downloaded January 1, 1998.  Before being downloaded, Highway 88 ran the short distance between Highway 27 at Bond Head, to Highway 11 in Downtown Bradford.  Because both Highway's 11 and 27 were downloaded, it only made sense to also download Highway 88 since it no longer connected to provincial highways at its termini.

Highway 88 ends at Highway 27

Road Info:  Highway 88 is in good condition for its entire length.  Traffic volumes on Highway 88 are moderate west of the 400, and can be quite busy to the east of the 400 freeway.  There are several closely space traffic signals within Bradford, which can be fairly slow for through traffic.  The Highway 400 interchange is quite busy, and poorly designed, motorists should use caution.  A large carpool lot exists in the southwest quadrant of the freeway interchange -- it to is well utilzed.  Rural speed limits on Highway 88 are posted at 80km/h.
