History of King's Highway 98A:
King's Highway 98A was one of Ontario's shortest King's Highways. The highway was created out of a route renumbering in 1938, when the existing route of Highway 3B through Maidstone was redesignated as Highway 98A. The decision to renumber Highway 3B in Maidstone was apparently done to eliminate the confusion between the Maidstone route and a different unrelated route of Highway 3B which led into Windsor only a few miles to the west. Highway 98A was only 1.9 km in length. In 1953, Highway 98A was renumbered as Highway 114. The highway retained the Highway 114 route number until the route was decommissioned altogether in 1970.
