Secondary Highway 602 -

Highway 602 is the part of the original colonizational road between Fort Frances and Rainy River.  The highway follows the Rainy River (which is coincidentally, the Canada-USA border), generally within one kilometre of the river for the highways entire length.  602 serves primarily local traffic, as through traffic would speed along the much more direct Highway 11/71 to the north.
