District of Thunder Bay Highway 102 is an alternate to the Trans-Canada Highway from Shabaqua to Thunder Bay.  The only reason I can see why Highway 102 didn't assume the Trans-Canada Highway designation, is that it bypasses scenic Kakabeka Falls, which is a popular tourist attraction for many motorists venturing across Northwestern Ontario.
