Secondary Highway 600 - www.OntHighways.com
Highway 600 forms one of the important secondary routes in the District of Rainy River. Highway 600 starts in the community of Rainy River, heading north-south in direction. At River Road, approximately 15 km north of Rainy River, Highway 600 abruptly turns east, becoming an east-west highway all the way to Highway 600's eastern terminus at Highway 71. Interestingly, a small portion of Highway 600 was once part of the King's Highway network. Before Highway 70 (now 71) was realigned in the early-1950s, the section of highway from Black Hawk easterly to the route's eastern terminus was part of Highway 70. In 1997/98 Highway 600 was shortened by 500m as the section within Rainy River was formerly decommissioned. It is, however, very likely that Highway 600 is still fully signed and locally known as Highway 600 through Rainy River to this date.
