Highway 162 is a two-lane controlled access highway on Boularderie Island in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Highway 162 was constructed in the late 1970s to link Highway 105 in Bras d'Or to the now-closed Prince Mine at Point Aconi.

In the early 1990s the highway was extended another 2 kilometres to terminate at the Point Aconi Generating Station.

The highway is 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) long. There is one interchange on the highway near the old Prince Mine site that connects to Point Aconi Road.
