HWY 8 #282

Up until the early 1960s, Hwy 7, Hwy 8 & Hwy 19 all shared a concurrent overlapped route between Stratford and Shakespeare. As part of a highway renumbering plan carried out in this area in 1962, the route of Hwy 19 between Shakespeare and Woodstock was renumbered as Hwy 59. The overlapped route of Hwy 19 along Hwy 7 & Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare was also discontinued in 1962. See an Enlarged Photo Here. Photo taken circa 1950.
