History of Tertiary Highway 806:
Tertiary Highway 806 was a short local collector road serving the Sellwood Mine north of Sudbury. The highway came into existence in 1965, when the Milnet-Sellwood Road was assumed by the Ontario Department of Highways as a new Tertiary Highway on 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 highway was reportedly paved at first, but it is shown as a gravel road on most maps from the early 1970s. Highway 806 was turned over to the newly-formed Regional Municipality of Sudbury, effective November 13, 1974.
