History of Secondary Highway 658 (#1):

Secondary Highway 658 was a minor collector highway that served as an access road from Highway 17 to Fairbank Lake west of Sudbury. The new highway was first designated in 1966, when the Ontario Department of Highways assumed the Fairbank Lake Road as a new provincial highway. The section of Highway 658 from the Highway 17 Junction north to Old Highway 17 at Victoria Mine was assumed on July 2, 1966. The balance of the highway was assumed on July 21, 1966. The route of Highway 658 was gravel-surfaced for its entire length. The highway was relatively short-lived, lasting only 8 years. The entire route of Highway 658 was transferred to the newly-formed Regional Municipality of Sudbury, effective November 13, 1974. The road is now known as Sudbury Road 4 (Fairbank Lake Road). A different, unrelated Highway 658 has existed near Kenora since 1985.
