History of King's Highway 35B (Dorset):

King's Highway 35B was a short business route through Dorset which appears to have been was established sometime after the Dorset Bypass was completed and opened to traffic in 1958. The old alignment of Highway 35 through Dorset was designated as Highway 35B, although it is not certain at this time if this occurred immediately after the Dorset Bypass opened. Department of Highways mileage tables prior to 1970 seem to omit the Highway 35B Dorset Business Route. Dorset's Highway 35B Business Route existed up until 1974, when it was formally decommissioned. On October 18, 1974, the old route of Highway 35 through Dorset was transferred to the District Municipality of Muskoka and the Provisional County of Haliburton. A different, unrelated Highway 35B Business Route also existed in Lindsay between 1958 and 1998.
