History of King's Highway 77 (#1):
The first route in Ontario to be given the King's Highway 77 designation was also one of the province's shortest highways. Highway 77 was first designated on August 5, 1936, connecting Highway 3 to Rodney. The entire highway was only 6.5 km in length. The road was paved in 1937. In the mid-1950s, it was decided that Highway 77 was no longer needed in the Provincial Highway System, so it was transferred to Elgin County on December 5, 1957. The road is presently known as Furnival Road or Elgin County Road 103. In the early 1960s, the Highway 77 designation was utilized again on a different, unrelated route. A new provincial highway link was established between Highway 401 and Leamington in 1963. This route was also designated as Highway 77.
