Road Info:  Highway 555 is paved for its entire length.  Between Highway 557 and Lake Duborn Road, the highway is a fairly good road, typical of a lot of Central Ontario's secondary highways, while north of the Lake Duborn Road the highway takes a marked turn for the worse.  While the highway remains paved for its entire length, there are several instances where the the highway makes a fairly abrupt curve directly at the top of hill.  In these cases, the driver is faced with a moment where it is not particularly evident in which direction the highway leads to.  While all of Highway 555 is posted at 80km/h, drivers (particularly those who are unfamiliar with the road) would be cautioned against driving that quickly along Highway 555.
