Secondary Highway 537 -

Highway 537 runs between Highways 69 and 17 in the southeast portion of the city of Sudbury.  In 1998 Highway 537 was shorted as the northern 3.6km was transferred to Sudbury.  The northern terminus of Highway 537 is now just south of the Finni Road junction.  Interestingly, Highway 537 is the only secondary highway to have not been downloaded in the mid-1970s shortly after the Regional Municipality of Sudbury was created.  Virtually all of Sudbury's rural Regional Roads were Secondary Highways before the Regional Municipality of Sudbury was formed.
