History and significance

Yonge Street was originally a military trail linking Lake Ontario with the northern Great Lakes. For this reason, it is unusually long and straight. It was founded by John Graves Simcoe, the Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada (now Ontario) in 1793. Lake Ontario (French: lac Ontario), bounded on the north by Ontario and on the south by Ontarios Niagara Peninsula and by New York State, is one of the five Great Lakes of North America. ... The Great Lakes from space The Great Lakes are a group of five large lakes in North America on or near the Canada-United States border. ... John Graves Simcoe (February 25, 1752 – October 26, 1806) was the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada (modern-day southern Ontario plus the shoreline of Georgian Bay and Lake Superior) from 1791-1796. ... The flag of the Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario This is a list of Lieutenant Governors of the Canadian province of Ontario. ... 1793 was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ...


Simcoe chose its beginning and end points based on a historical trail created by Huron Indians. The trail was used by numerous European explorers, such as Samuel de Champlain in 1615. Simcoe named the street after Sir George Yonge, the British Secretary of War at the time. This article is about the First Nations people, the Wyandot, also known as the Huron. ...

Sir George Yonge, 5th Baronet (1731–1812) was a British Secretary at War (1782-1783 and 1783-1794) and the namesake of Toronto, Canadas Yonge Street, which was named by the Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada John Graves Simcoe, in 1793. ...


Because of fears of U.S. aggression, Simcoe wanted to move the capital of Upper Canada from Newark to a more defensible position. He chose Yonge Street to be the site of the new capital. Hence, Yonge Street became the first street of the city that would become Toronto. Map of Upper Canada (orange) Upper Canada was a British territory in what is now the Canadian province of Ontario. ... Niagara-on-the-Lake in the Niagara Region Niagara-on-the-Lake Niagara-on-the-Lake (2001 population 13,839) is a town where the Niagara River meets Lake Ontario in the Niagara Region, Ontario, Canada. ...


Yonge Street was fundamental in the planning and layout of Toronto and Ontario. It was used as the basis for concession roads in Ontario. It was the site of Toronto's first subway line. It also serves as the dividing line between the east and west parts of east–west roads in Toronto and York Region. (Yonge is the zero-numbering point for those east–west streets; building numbers on such streets increase as one moves further away from Yonge.) In Upper and Lower Canada, concession roads were laid out by the colonial government through undeveloped land to define lots to be developed; the name comes from a Lower Canadian French term for a row of lots. ... This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... York Regional Municipality, also called York Municipality or York Region, is a municipality in south-central Ontario, between Lake Simcoe and Toronto. ...


Evolution of Yonge Street

John Graves Simcoe used the Queen's Rangers to survey and build the road and established lots along it so that settlers would further clear and improve it. By the early part of the 19th century, Yonge Street ran from Lake Ontario to Holland Landing, providing a link between the lower and upper Great Lakes through Holland River and Lake Simcoe. Yonge Street became the baseline around which the other concession lines of York County were drawn. The lot numbers on this street reach into the 21000s. John Graves Simcoe (February 25, 1752 – October 26, 1806) was the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada (modern-day southern Ontario plus the shoreline of Georgian Bay and Lake Superior) from 1791-1796. ... Holland Landing is a village in the town of East Gwillimbury, located in the northern part of the Regional Municipality of York, in south-central Ontario. ...


In 1824, work began to extend Yonge Street to Kempenfelt Bay near Barrie. A northwestern extension branched off the original Yonge Street in Holland Landing and ran into the new settlement of Bradford before turning north towards Barrie. Work was completed by 1827. The road was further extended to Penetanguishene on the shores of Georgian Bay, serving a naval base. This section of road was referred to not as Yonge Street but Penetanguishene Road. Kempenfelt Bay is a 14. ...

Georgian Bay (French: baie Georgienne) is a large bay of Lake Huron, located in Ontario, Canada. ...


The decision was made to withdraw the military garrison in Penetanguishene in 1852. Settlers by and large avoided the road, preferring to follow the line of the railway, established a few years before, between Barrie and Collingwood. Confederation and the construction of the national transcontinental railway further diminished the importance of Yonge Street as the new Dominion of Canada heralded the construction of east-west trade routes from sea to sea. By the 1870s, Dr. Scadding, historian of Toronto of Old, declared that Penetanguishene did not have the importance to need an approach such as the "extension of the Yonge Street Road". Roads and railways pushed settlement northeast along the shores of Lake Simcoe and north up the shores of Georgian Bay to North Bay. The town of Collingwood, (2000 estimated population 21,500), is located on the southern point of Georgian Bay known as Nottawasaga Bay. ... North Bay (, time zone EST) is a city in Northeastern Ontario, Canada (2001 population 52,771). ...


In the 1920s, looking to support the rapidly developing mining and agricultural communities in northern Ontario, the government of Ontario sought to connect these communities to the south by commissioning a highway between North Bay and Cochrane. After construction crews pushed through the dense Temagami forest, the road was officially opened on July 2, 1927, and named the Ferguson Highway after the Hon. G. Howard Ferguson, the premier of Ontario and longtime supporter of northern development. The Ferguson Highway, as well as other roads leading to Barrie and Yonge Street itself were incorporated into Kings Highway 11 in the 1930s. The northern stretch of Highway 11 became part of the Trans Canada Highway and, by 1965, Highway 11 extended from the foot of Yonge Street on the shores of Lake Ontario to Rainy River, on the border between Ontario and Minnesota. Cochrane, Ontario, Canada is a northern Ontario town situated on Highway 11. ...

Yonge Street today

Today, Yonge Street exists in name as two segments and a branch. The current road runs from Lake Ontario through Toronto and the York Region to north of Newmarket, before breaking from the baseline and heading northwest along the Holland Landing bypass (constructed 1959) into Bradford. At the Holland River, Yonge Street changes its name to Bridge Street 56 kilometres north of Lake Ontario, and then changes its name to Holland Street a few blocks later. To follow the old Highway 11 one must turn right onto Barrie Street and drive out of Bradford where the Yonge Street name is picked up again. The name disappears in south Barrie just over 100 kilometres north of Lake Ontario, changing to Burton Avenue at a midblock location, and the road itself ends a few blocks later at a T-intersection with Essa Road. The original baseline road continues through Holland Landing, petering out roughly 56 kilometres north of Lake Ontario, as it approaches Cook's Bay on Lake Simcoe. York Regional Municipality, also called York Municipality or York Region, is a municipality in south-central Ontario, between Lake Simcoe and Toronto. ... Map showing Newmarkets location in York Region Newmarket is a town located approximately 45 km north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. ...


Penetanguishene Road continues to exist. It was incorporated into the Kings Highway network as Highway 93. The modern Penetanguishene Road deviates from the original somewhat and is not as straight, but the original can still be seen in some places, labelled as "Old Penetanguishene Road".


There is also a Yonge Street in Midland, Ontario which runs from Penetanguishene Road to the Midland Bay. Another Yonge Street can be found in Elmvale, Ontario. Midland (population 16,800) is a town located on Georgian Bay in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada. ... Springwater is a township in central Ontario, Canada in Simcoe County between Barrie and Wasaga Beach. ...


Yonge Street as the "Longest Street in the World"

It is the fact that Yonge Street was a part of Ontario Provincial Highway 11 which led to the claims that Yonge Street was the longest street in the world. Running from the shores of Lake Ontario, through central and northern Ontario to the Ontario-Minnesota border at Rainy River, Highway 11 was over 1896 kilometres long, but Yonge Street could only be called the longest street in the world if "Highway 11" and "Yonge Street" were synonymous, which was debatable. However, the Guinness Book of World Records recognized this claim as late as 1998. Ontario provincial highway 11 is one of the longest of Ontarios Kings Highways, with a current length (as of 2004) of 1636 km. ... Capital Saint Paul Largest city Minneapolis Area  Ranked 12th  - Total 87,014 sq mi (225,365 km²)  - Width 250 miles (400 km)  - Length 400 miles (645 km)  - % water 8. ... The Canadian town of Rainy River is situated on the Ontario-Minnesota border, along the Rainy River opposite Baudette, Minnesota, USA and southeast of the Lake of the Woods along Highway 11. ...


Changes in provincial responsibility separated the now locally funded and controlled Yonge Street from Highway 11 during the 1990s. As a result, Provincial Highway 11 does not start until after the city of Barrie (or Crown Hill), just north of where the name "Yonge Street" ends. The Guinness Book of World Records no longer lists the claim that Yonge Street is the longest street in the world, citing instead the Pan-American Highway as the world's longest "motorable road". Germans dancing on the Berlin Wall in late 1989, the symbol of the cold war divide falls down as the world unites in the 1990s. ...

This has not stopped Torontonians from clinging to this claim.

Configuration

South of the former Toronto – North York city limit at Yonge Boulevard, Yonge Street is a four-lane historic urban arterial with heavy pedestrian traffic, passing through commercial and residential areas. Between Yonge Boulevard and Highway 401 (exit 369), Yonge opens up somewhat into parkland of the West Don Valley (Hoggs Hollow) and lower-density residential areas. Between Highways 401 and 407 (exit 77), densities and traffic increase as Yonge becomes a six-lane principal urban arterial road through North York Civic Centre and an older section of Thornhill.

Cultural significance

Yonge Street is frequently considered to be Toronto's main street, because of its position dividing the city east and west, and the presence of the Yonge subway line. As a result, it is the traditional gathering place for public celebrations.
