Encyclopedia > Highway 24 (Ontario)

Ontario provincial highway 24 is a highway in the Canadian province of Ontario which begins at Highway 3 in Simcoe, and ends at Main Street, in Erin. It runs on a Northeast/Southwest direction. Major cities Highway 24 runs through include Guelph, Cambridge, and Brantford. On September 12th, 2006, it was announced that the Ontario Provincial Government would be handing out $2.2 Million to conduct a study to see how approriate "Highway 424" would be, connecting Cambridge to Brantford. It would make Highway 24 a 4 lane highway, and be more adequate for the vehicle volume that has steadily increased since the highway was made in 1927. At the moment, it is a very clogged road because of the traffic. Highway 424 plans to fix this problem.
