History of Secondary Highway 528:

Secondary Highway 528 is a local highway in the Districts of Sudbury & Nipissing that serves as an access road between Highway 64 south of Noelville to the small community of Wolseley Bay on the western side of Lake Nipissing. The Wolseley Bay and Pine Cove Road was officially designated as Highway 528 by an Order-in-Council dated May 9, 1956. Originally, a short spur highway existed off of Highway 528 near Wolseley Bay which led to Pine Cove. This spur route was also part of Highway 528 when the highway was designated in 1956. The two routes were separated officially when a second Order-in-Council was signed on June 20, 1957, which designated the Pine Cove Spur as Highway 528A. Apart from the renumbering of the Pine Cove Spur, the route of Highway 528 has remained unchanged since it was first designated. The highway was gravel-surfaced at the time of designation in 1956, but a primed bituminous surface was constructed in 1965. A 3 km section east of the Highway 64 Junction was paved in 1976. The balance of the highway was paved in 1981. Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit on Highway 528 is 80 km/h (50 mph). Services are available in Wolseley Bay.
