Ontario Highway 802
|Maintained by Ministry of Transportation of Ontario|
|Length||13.8 km (8.6 mi)|
|South end||Burchell Lake|
Route description [ edit ]
Highway 802, like most other tertiary highways, is not maintained by the Ministry of Transportation during the winter months.
The segment from Highway 11 to Kashabowie also has the name Kashabowie Road, while the segment from Highway 11 to Burchell Lake is unnamed.
History [ edit ]
The road was originally built in 1902 as a link between the mineral exploration site at Burchell Lake and the train station at Kashabowie, but was not designated as part of the provincial highway system until 1962. Burchell Lake was later abandoned in 1967.
Lac des Mille Lacs Road [ edit ]
In the 2012 edition of the Ministry of Transportation's official road map, the more northerly Lac des Mille Lacs Road, from Lac des Mille Lacs to Upsala, was also marked as part of Highway 802. This appears to have been a cartographic error, as the Highway 802 marker was removed from this road again on the 2014 map and no records indicate that the Ministry had ever actually extended the designation.
