Hwy 650 Hwy 652

Secondary Highway 651, commonly referred to as Highway 651, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. The highway is 52.9 kilometres (32.9 mi) in length, connecting Highway 101 east of Wawa with the remote community of Missanabie.

Highway 651 was established on Centennial anniversary of Confederation, but did not connect to any other roads originally; access to the route was provided from Missanabie. While this situation has since been remedied, the route nevertheless remains extremely isolated.

History

Highway 651 was assumed by the Department of Highways (DOH) on the day of Canada's Centennial, July 1, 1967. At that point in time, Highway 101 had not yet been completed between Wawa and Chapleau, and so the route was connected to the rest of the province solely by rail. The isolated highway provided access between the community of Missanabie and the flag stop at Dalton, to the south. It was approximately half of the current length of the route.[1]

Presumably, Highway 651 was assumed by the DOH to provide better access to the remote region between Wawa and Chapleau, aiding in the construction of Highway 101.[citation needed] That highway, as well as a southward extension of Highway 651 to intersect it, opened to traffic on April 30, 1969.[1] The route has remained unchanged since that time.[3]
