History of Tertiary Highway 810:
Tertiary Highway 810 is a forest access road in the District of Algoma which provides road access to a remote area north of Massey. The highway runs from the north end of Highway 553 northerly for over 40 km to the tiny seasonal community of Richie Falls. Highway 810 was created out of a route renumbering in 1974. A 43 km section of Highway 553 from Bull Lake northerly to Richie Falls was re-designated as a Tertiary Highway by an Order-in-Council, effective November 20, 1974. As a result, the northernmost 43 km section of Highway 553 was renumbered as Highway 810. The entire length of Highway 810 is gravel-surfaced. There are no services available on this highway. While this road is still a provincial highway today, it should be noted that the road is typically not maintained by the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario during the winter months. Inquire locally in Massey about road conditions before attempting to use Highway 810 between October and April.
