History of Tertiary Highway 806:
Tertiary Highway 806 was a local highway that served as an access road to the Moose Mountain Mine near Sellwood, located north of Sudbury. The highway came into existence in 1965, when the Moose Mountain Mine Road was designated as a Tertiary Highway by a Order-in-Council, effective March 18, 1965. Tertiary Highway 806 began at Highway 545 at Milnet (north of Capreol) and ended at the Moose Mountain Mine Entrance. The route was approximately 7 km in length. The Moose Mountain Mine Road was paved in 1963, just prior to the highway's designation. Jurisdiction over Highway 806 was turned over from the province to the newly-formed Regional Municipality of Sudbury, effective November 13, 1974.
