King's Highway 402, Ontario, Canada
King's Highway 402 is a 400-series highway in the Canadian province of Ontario a
nd a vital trade link with the Midwestern United States, connecting the Blue Wat
er Bridge international crossing near Sarnia to Highway 401 in London. The contr
olled access freeway is four-laned for nearly its entire length, widening at the
approach to the Blue Water Bridge. It originally ended within the Sarnia city l
imits, merging into Highway 7 near the present Highway 40 interchange. Although
it was one of the original 400-series highways, it was not completed until 1982;
construction extending it to London began in 1972 and was completed with the fi
nal link between Highway 81 and Highway 2. The entire route became a controlled-
access highway with the removal of an intersection at Front Street in Sarnia. Hi
ghway 402 offers access to Interstate 69 (I-69) and I-94 into Port Huron, Michig
an, as well as Toronto via Highway 401, and onwards to Montreal via A-20 in Queb
ec. The only town along Highway 402 between Sarnia and London is Strathroy. (Ful
