Secondary Highway 529 -

Highway 529 is a retired alignment of Highway 69 that was bypassed circa 1960.  Traffic volumes are low for its entire length, and this highway serves very little provincial purpose.  There is no lower-tiered municipality to transfer this highway to, which is why it has remained in the provincial highway system for so long.
