King's Highway 94, commonly referred to as Highway 94, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario that serves as a southeast bypass of North Bay.

Route description[edit]

Highway 94 is a 12.4-kilometre (7.7 mi) route that begins at Highway 654 south of Callander, adjacent to an interchange with Highway 11. The route travels from that point northeast to Highway 17 near Corbeil. Highway 94 is situated entirely within Nipissing District. The Highway is longer north-south than it is east west, but it is signed as an east-west highway.[2]

History[edit]

Highway 94 was assumed in 1937, after northern development routes came under the jurisdiction of the Department of Highways. The primary purpose of the route was to provide access to the home of the Dionne Quintuplets, the first set of quintuplets to survive past infancy, who caused a massive increase to tourism in the area.
