Autoroute 67?
« on: July 07, 2016, 10:32:28 PM »

Going through some old Vermont road photos, I found a photo that mentioned a possible Autoroute 67. It is very possible that this could just be a misprint, or maybe Quebec was planning to place an Autoroute 67 roughly where Autoroute 35 is today. When I-89 was opened in Highgate Springs, Vermont in 1966, there was a commemoration exhibit that mentioned this (see URL below). I am thinking that this is an error and Autoroute 67 was mentioned because of Expo 67. However, I figured that I'd post this to see if there was indeed supposed to be Autoroute 67, or if it was to be Autoroute 35 all along.

I would believe it is in error, given the grid system established for the Autoroutes.

Perhaps it was proposed to commemorate Expo ’67  temporarily.

Attendance at Expo was over 50 million, more than double Canada’s population at the time and a lot of visitors would have been from the US…… driving to Montreal.

Hard to say!

Even in the Quebec former highway numbers, there was no hwy. 67 at all!

The actual QC-133, that connects to I-89, was hwy. 7 in the old system.

We could wonder if they had once studied the possibility to using new routes numbers for the Quebec Autoroutes? I mentionned the following in another thread
https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=2353.msg2301365#msg2301365 old topographic maps of Mount Orford and Lake Memphremagog showing what is now A-55 marked as PQ-91.
