Some of Mississauga's roads have a long history. The Lakeshore Highway, also known as the Hamilton Highway, is one of the earliest pathways in the township as is the Centre Road, which we know as Hurontario Street. Dundas Street, the Governor's Road, originally ran from York to London. Other roads such as Burnhamthorpe, Cawthra and Dixie formed the boundaries of the early concessions. The Middle Road, which divided Concessions I and II in the southern half of Toronto Township, became the Queen Elizabeth Way.
