In 1997 and 1998, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation downloaded portions of the highway to regional and municipal governments. Because of this, there are now two (once three) separated sections of Highway 7.
The western segment of Highway 7 runs from Elginfield in Middlesex County in the southwest to the Halton - Peel border at Norval near Brampton. Middlesex Centre is a township in south-western Ontario, Canada. Middlesex County is a Census division located in Western Ontario. Halton Hills is a Town in the the Regional Municipality of Halton, west of Toronto, Ontario, Brampton (pronounced bramton is the third-largest city in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada and the seat of Peel Region.

Plans to build a freeway bypass of Highway 7 from Kitchener, through Guelph to Vaughan are currently in development. With only two travel lanes, the section between Kitchener and Guelph is one of the most congested in the province.
At one point Highway 7 ran as far west as Sarnia, being the main route to the Blue Water Bridge. The Blue Water Bridge is a twin-span bridge that spans the St Upon entering Sarnia, there is a plethora of motels and restaurants, the Sarnia Airport, and attractions such as the bingo hall, Hiawatha Racetrack and Waterpark, giving that stretch the nickname "Golden Mile". At Highway 40, Highway 7 ended and the short freeway Highway 402 continued westwards to the border. Highway 402 is a 400-Series Highway in southwestern Ontario, Canada that runs 103  km (64  mi) from the Blue Water Bridge Since 1982, the extension of Highway 402 to London has meant that most traffic bypasses Highway 7, due to 402's larger volume capabilities and higher allowable speeds. Consequently, most of the Golden Mile motels have gone into decline. Nonetheless, Highway 7 remained provincial maintained until that segment was downgraded on January 1, 1998 and is now known as London Line 22 (this also connects the former Highway 22.
