History[edit]

Highway 741 was originally designated as part of Provincial Highway 21, which connected Leader with Macklin and Lloydminster.[2] In the 1930s, it was renumbered to Provincial Highway 32 while the north-south section was renumbered to Provincial Highway 17.[3] In the 1940s, Provincial Highway 32 west of Leader was decommissioned, along with the section of Provincial Highway 17 south of Macklin.[4] The route remained unnumbered until the municipal numbering system was established in the early 1980s.[5][6]
