History of King's Highway 94:
King's Highway 94 is a minor collector highway connecting Callander to Highway 17 in the North Bay area. The highway was first designated in 1937, primarily to serve as an access road to the childhood home of the famous Dionne Quintuplets near Corbeil. The Dionne Quintuplets brought un unprecedented number of tourists to the North Bay area in the 1930s, prompting major highway improvements in the region. In 1987, Callander was bypassed by the new Highway 11 freeway, which resulted in a short extension to Highway 94. A portion of the former Highway 11 alignment from Callander to Highway 654 became Highway 94. Today, Highway 94 is a quiet rural side road serving primarily local traffic. Interestingly, Highway 94 ends at a Secondary Highway, which is a very uncommon occurrence in Ontario. Services are available on this short highway. Highway 94 is two lanes, with a posted speed limit of 80 km/h (50 mph) unless posted otherwise.
