History of King's Highway 7A (Alt) Kitchener:

This short-lived alternate route was established in Downtown Kitchener in 1958. The alternate route departed Highway 7 at the intersection of Highland Road and Hampton Road (today's Belmont Avenue), and followed Highland Road, Queen Street, Duke Street, Frederick Street and Lancaster Street through downtown Kitchener. The route connected back to Highway 7 at the intersection of Victoria Street and Lancaster Street. It is not certain if this road was ever signed as Highway 7A. It is possible that the Department of Highways signed this highway as "Highway 7" with an "ALT" or "Alternate" tab below the route marker. Between Courtland Avenue and King Street, Highway 7A (Alt) ran concurrently with Highway 8A (Alt). The route was decommissioned in 1960.
