History of Secondary Highway 654:
Secondary Highway 654 is a minor collector highway that serves several communities along the southern shores of Lake Nipissing near Callander. The highway was first assumed by the Ontario Department of Highways as a new provincial highway on August 28, 1964. The highway was already paved when the province took over the road. The route of Highway 654 was extended slightly in 1987, when a new interchange was constructed at Highway 654 and the new Highway 11 Callander Bypass. The route of Highway 654 has not changed substantially since that time. Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit on Highway 654 is 80 km/h (50 mph).
