King's Highway 65, commonly referred to as Highway 65, is a provincially maintained highway in the Canadian province of Ontario. The route begins at Highway 66 and travels 123.3 kilometres (76.6 mi) southeast to the Quebec border. At its midpoint, the route is concurrent with Highway 11.

Route description

Highway 65 currently travels from Highway 66 at a junction east of Matachewan, southeast to New Liskeard then northeast to the Quebec provincial border. The total length of Highway 65 is 123.3 kilometres (76.6 mi). With the exception of the community of Elk Lake, the section of the route between Highway 66 and Highway 11 passes through a remote and sparsely populated wilderness. The route becomes concurrent with Highway 11 and follows that route north for 2.7 kilometres (1.7 mi), bypassing the urban section of New Liskeard in the process.[2]

The route's continuation in Quebec does not have a provincial route number, but is named Rue Ontario by the town of Notre-Dame-du-Nord. Rue Ontario ends at Route 101 in Notre-Dame-du-Nord, 2.6 kilometres (2 miles) east of the provincial border.

Highway 65 is entirely situated in Timiskaming District. It travels through the communities of Elk Lake, Kenabeek and New Liskeard.

History

Highway 65 was first established on August 7, 1937, when the New Liskeard to Matachewan Road was assumed by the Department of Highways.[1] The route was extended 22.5 kilometres (14.0 mi) east to the Ontario–Quebec border on February 22, 1956.[1] It has remained unchanged since.[2]
