History of King's Highway 2A (Alt.) Cornwall:

King's Highway 2A (Alt.) was a short-lived alternate route that was established in Cornwall in 1965. The route of Highway 2A (Alt.) branched off of Highway 2 at the intersection of Second Street and Brookdale Avenue. The route followed Second Street and Nine Mile Road (now known as Power Dam Road). Highway 2A (Alt.) joined up with Highway 2 at the intersection of Nine Mile Road and Vincent Massey Drive. It is not certain if this road was ever signed as Highway 2A. It is possible that the Department of Highways signed this highway as "Highway 2" with an "ALT." or "Alternate" tab below the route marker. The route of Highway 2A (Alt.) was decommissioned in 1967. Two unrelated Highway 2A (Alt.) Routes also existed in London and Chatham.
