"No. 155 Highway was begun in 1947 as a development road".
It reached Buffalo Narrows in 1957 where a ferry was needed to cross the Kisis Channel.
"The new road follows closely the old wagon trail cut 100 years earlier by the HBC." (Star-Phoenix-Aug.29.1963)
The official opening of Highway 155 from Green Lake to Buffalo Narrows was held in August 1963 in Green Lake. The old trail to La Loche was rebuilt soon after to become part of Highway 155.
A bridge now crosses the Kisis Channel next to where the ferry was once located. The Kisis Channel connects Churchill Lake to Peter Pond Lake.
In the 1980s the highway was straightened and paved.
