History of King's Highway 72A:

The actual existence of King's Highway 72A has not yet been confirmed. Some historical references suggest that the Patricia to Hudson portion of Highway 72 may have actually been signed as Highway 72A before being renumbered as Highway 116 in 1954. However, Department of Highways' records seem to suggest that the route from Patricia to Hudson was signed as Highway 72, right up until 1954. Until further information comes to light, it will be assumed that the route of the Patricia-Hudson Highway was indeed signed as Highway 72 between 1937 and 1954.
