Provincial highways in Saskatchewan

Highway 999 is a provincial highway in the far north region of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It serves the small settlement of Camsell Portage on the north side of Lake Athabasca, and is about 3 km (2 mi) long. It is one of the only highways in Saskatchewan that is completely isolated (by land) from the other highways of the province, without even a regular seasonal/winter road link, and thus is only used for local traffic. [1] [2]

Google Maps, however, shows a longer road designated Highway 999 east of the hamlet, and not actually connecting with it; instead this 999 begins near Charlot River Airport due east of Camsell Portage, and runs several kilometres to a residential area near Dam Lake.[3]
