Secondary Highway 538 - Secondary.OntHighways.com
Highway 538 is a short and desolate secondary highway that runs a short distance south of Highway 17 for its entire length. Highway 538 is actually a former alignment of Highway 17. It was bypassed due to several sharp corners, an at-grade rail crossing, and a rail overhead that has both poor sightlines and a low overhead clearance.
