Secondary Highway 630 -   O N T   H I G H W A Y S

Highway 630 is a connector highway that leads south of Highway 17 to the small community of Kiosk located in the northern portion of Algonquin Park.  Highway 630 has changed very little since its inception into the highway network in the early 1960s, and was unaffected by provincial downloading in the late 1990s.

Road Info:  Highway 630 ranges in condition from excellent to poor along its journey from Highway 17 to Kiosk.  The southern portions of the highway are extremely lightly traveled, and have not seen any major maintenance for decades.  The southern portion of highway has actually seen so little maintenance and traffic, that the highway still features white centre lines.  (Before the early 1970s, Ontario painted centre-lines on roads with white paint as opposed to the more traditional yellow).  The northern stretches of Highway 630 are more modern, and have in some cases been fairly recently rehabilitated.  Highway 630 has a posted speed limit of 80km/h.
