British Columbia Highway 37A, usually called the Stewart Highway and also known as the Glacier Highway, is a 65 km (40 mi) long spur off Highway 37 west to the border towns of Stewart and Hyder, Alaska, where it connects with Alaska's Salmon River Road. Highway 37A was given this designation in 1984.

The Salmon River Road actually ends in British Columbia at the former site of a town called Premier, which serviced mines in British Columbia and later the Granduc Mine.
