Secondary Highway 519, commonly referred to as Highway 519, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. The highway is 30.5 km (19.0 mi) in length, connecting Highway 17 near Obatanga Provincial Park with Dubreuilville station. A private logging road continues east from there.
Highway 519 was assumed in 1956, and has remained unchanged since then. The route is paved throughout its length and encounters no communities of any size along its length, aside from Dubreuilville.
Route description [ edit ]
Highway 519 is a short paved highway in the northern section of Algoma District which provides access to the remote village of Dubreuilville. The route begins east of Obatanga Provincial Park at Highway 17, 40 km (25 mi) north of Wawa and 45 km (28 mi) south of White River. From the it travels 30.5 km (19.0 mi) eastward through a hilly and heavily forested region. The highway ends at Green Lake Road, just before entering Dubreuilville, a village built to service the Dubreuil Brothers lumber operations in the surrounding boreal forest. An access road continues east of the village to the Chapleau Crown Game Preserve, the largest game preserve in the world.
History [ edit ]
Highway 519 is one of several dozen secondary highways designated at the beginning of 1956. The highway has remained the same since it was designated, and was unaffected by highway downloading in the late-1990s.

Two new Ontario road numbers appear on the province's 1956 official road map which will be ready for distribution next week. The new numbers are the 500 and 600 series and designate hundreds of miles of secondary roads which are wholly maintained by the Highways Department. More than 100 secondary roads will have their own numbers and signs this year. All of these secondary roads were taken into the province's main highways system because they form important connecting links with the King's Highways
