HWY 400 #278             HWY 400 #279

Left - King Township Sideroad 35 Overpass on Hwy 400 near Newmarket in 1962. Several years after this photo was taken, this township road was assumed by the province as a new King's Highway. In the late 1960s, this road was incorporated into an extension of Hwy 9 from Schomberg to Newmarket. The Hwy 9 extension to Newmarket was completed and opened to traffic in 1969, along with a new interchange at Hwy 400. See an Enlarged Photo here. Photo taken on May 31, 1962.

Right - Facing east towards Newmarket at the King Township Sideroad 35 Overpass on Hwy 400 in 1962. This road ultimately became Hwy 9 in the late 1960s, when a new King's Highway was built connecting Schomberg and Newmarket. It may seem hard to believe, but this tiny road is now a busy four-lane arterial highway! Compare this 1962 photo to this Present-Day Photo of the same location. See an Enlarged Photo here. Photo taken on May 31, 1962.
