History of King's Highway 35A:
King's Highway 35A was created out of a route renumbering which occurred shortly after the Fenelon Falls Bypass was completed in 1955. The new Fenelon Falls Bypass was built almost 4 km to the west of Fenelon Falls, and the route of Highway 35 was relocated so that it followed the new bypass. The old route of Highway 35 which entered Fenelon Falls from the west was renumbered as Highway 35A. The balance of the former route of Highway 35 through Fenelon Falls was renumbered as Highway 121. At a total length of 3.7 km, Highway 35A was one of the shortest King's Highways in the entire Ontario highway network. The highway was downloaded by the province to the County of Victoria on March 31, 1997, and is now part of Kawartha Lakes Road 8 (formerly Victoria County Road 8). The speed limit on Highway 35A is 80 km/h (50 mph), unless posted otherwise. Please visit the Highway 35A Mileage Chart page for a list of mileage reference points along Highway 35A.
