The "Ontario Highways Master List" is a complete list of every provincial highway designation ever used in Ontario, from 1925 to today. This list was concieved out of many requests for information on old designations no longer in use in the province, such as "Was there ever a Hwy 1?" or "I heard about a Hwy 169. Was there such a thing?"
This page lists each designation in numerical order, from 2 through 811, and is separated into listings generally corresponding to the setup of the Ontario Highways website (e.g. 1-19, 20-39, etc.) for easier reference. Five 'types' of highways are included: current, un-signed, future and former highways, as well as those designations which have never been used to date. Each is color-coded, as shown in the "Highway Status Key" below. Those Current highways include a link to the regular listing on the website. The Un-Signed highways may also linked to a listing on the website. For those Formerly-Used designations, a short description of the former highway is included for referencial purposes. Often, links to current highway listings are also included. Never-Used designations, of course, feature no description, as they have never existed in the system.
With an undertaking of this magnitude, there may be a designation or two which have been overlooked or mis-stated. I have combed through dozens of sources and literally hundreds of old road and street maps, so the information contained on this page is reasonably complete and accurate. However, if you should find any information which is incorrect, or if you know of a designation which has not been included here, please drop the webmaster a line.
