History of King's Highway 109 (#1):

King's Highway 109 was a short collector highway through Scarborough Township which existed during the 1950s. This highway was created when the eastern portion of Highway 5A via Eglinton Avenue was renumbered as Highway 109 in 1953. The highway began at Dawes Road (today's Victoria Park Avenue) and extended easterly along Eglinton Avenue to Highway 2 (Kingston Road). At the time of the route renumbering in 1953, Highway 109 was paved for its entire length. The highway was very short-lived, and was decommissioned one year after the route was established. Jurisdiction over the highway was transferred from the province to the newly-formed City of Metropolitan Toronto, effective January 15, 1954. Since 1954, Highway 109 has been known simply as Eglinton Avenue. A different, unrelated Highway 109 existed in the Bancroft area between 1958 and 1964.
