History of King's Highway 122:

King's Highway 122 was a short connecting highway which provided access between Highway 2 and the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) near Oakville and Mississauga. The original route of Highway 122 followed the Lower Middle Road (later known as Royal Windsor Drive) between the QEW and the Highway 2 Junction at Southdown Road. The highway was first assumed by the Department of Highways on September 2, 1953, at a total length of 5.9 km. The highway was extended to the north on April 14, 1965, when a 1.8 km portion of Southdown Road (between Royal Windsor Drive and the QEW) was also designated as a part of Highway 122. This newly-extended route allowed for easy access between Highway 2 and the QEW, from both directions. With the sudden urbanization of this area during the 1960s, the route of Highway 122 began to serve a more local function, rather than serve the needs of inter-city through traffic. Accordingly, the entire route was decommissioned as a King's Highway and transferred to Mississauga and Oakville on April 1, 1970.
