Secondary Highway 539A, commonly referred to as Highway 539A, is a provincially maintained secondary highway in the Canadian province of Ontario, located within Nipissing District. Commencing at a junction with Highway 539 in the community of River Valley, the highway extends northwesterly for 13.1 kilometres (8.1 mi) to a point near where the Sturgeon River crosses the boundary between Nipissing and Sudbury District. At this point, the roadway turns northward and continues as Highway 805.

Route description

Highway 539A begins at a junction with its parent route, Highway 539. Drivers on Highway 539 must turn to remain on that route, while southbound Highway 539A becomes eastbound Highway 539 to Field. Northbound, drivers round a long curve and enter the community of River Valley. The highway crosses the railbed of a former rail spur, exits the community and crosses the Temagami River. The highway gradually curves to the northwest and hugs the bank of the Sturgeon River to the border between Nipissing District and Sudbury District, where it ends at Highway 805.[2]
