History of Tertiary Highway 807 (#1):
Tertiary Highway 807 was a new road constructed in the 1960s to provide highway access from Smooth Rock Falls to the new Abitibi Canyon Hydro-Electric Dam near Fraserdale. The nearby community of Fraserdale was determined to be the proposed northern terminus of Highway 807, and Ontario Hydro built a short access road from Fraserdale out to the dam site. Construction began on the highway in 1963, with the first section completed in 1965. The entire highway was completed and officially opened to traffic on July 21, 1966. The highway was paved in its entirety in 1971. In 1977, Highway 807 was renumbered as Highway 634. A different, unrelated Highway 807 existed in the Atikokan area during the 1980s.
