History of King's Highway 88:
King's Highway 88 was a very short highway which connected Bond Head to Bradford up until the late 1990s. The history of Highway 88 dates back to 1938, when the Bond Head-Bradford Road was assumed as a new provincial highway by the Department of Highways on April 13, 1938. The highway was only 9.7 km in length. The entire highway was paved in 1956. In 1998, both Highway 11 and Highway 27 were downloaded through this part of Simcoe County. Since Highway 88 merely connected these two downloaded highways together, it was decided that Highway 88 was no longer needed in the Provincial Highway System either. On January 1, 1998, Highway 88 was formally decommissioned as a King's Highway. The road is now officially known as Simcoe County Road 88, although it is still commonly referred to as "Highway 88" by motorists. Services are frequently available on this highway. Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit on Highway 88 is 80 km/h (50 mph). Please visit the Highway 88 Mileage Chart page for a list of mileage reference points along Highway 88.
