King's Highway 95 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 95 is a short highway that exists entirely on Wolfe Island.  Both Highway 95 and its cousin Highway 96 were downloaded in there entirety on January 1st, 1998.  Historically, Both Highways 95 and 96 were the only two King's Highways that were never physically connected to the mainland via a fixed link.  Because of this, traffic volumes on both Highway 95 and 96 are very light.  Both Highways 95 and 96 have changed very little from there inception into the highway network in the mid-1930s, and as such, both offer an excellent look back through time at what earlier King's Highways looked like.  For anyone in the Kingston area, Wolfe Island is certainly worth the short ferry ride.  The ferry (schedule available here from the MTO site) runs throughout the day at half an hour intervals, departing from Downtown Kingston.
