King's Highway 20
King's Highway 20 once connected Niagara Falls to Hamilton, but the only section of the route still under provincial jurisdiction is a 1.9-kilometer stretch between Thorold Townline Road and Davis Road (King's Highway 58). The remainder of the former route was transferred to municipal control in 1998 and today is still known by the same number.
 
Current Eastern Terminus: Intersection of Thorold Townline Road east of Allanburg.
Current Western Terminus: Junction of King's Highway 58 near Allanburg.
