History of Secondary Highway 671:

Secondary Highway 671 connects the isolated Grassy Narrows First Nation and the community of Jones Station with Highway 17A northeast of Kenora. The Jones Road, as it was previously known, was first designated as Highway 671 in the late 1980s. In November 1988, a Preliminary Assumption Plan was prepared by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) which showed the planned assumption of the Jones Road as a new Secondary Highway. The Preliminary Assumption Plan was registered on November 28, 1988, and the route was formally designated as Secondary Highway 671 by an Order-in-Council dated January 4, 1989. This series of events resulted in a rather unusual situation where the assumption of the highway and designation of the highway took place in different calendar years. Highway 671 is just over 68 km in length and is now paved in its entirety. Highway 671 offers motorists some particularly beautiful vistas of the scenic lakes northeast of Kenora, and is well worth the side trip. Unless posted otherwise, the speed limit on Highway 671 is 80 km/h (50 mph). There are no services available on this highway.
