Wye Road in Strathcona County, is a historic route from the early 1900s connecting Edmonton to Cooking Lake, parallel to a line of the Canadian National Railway, and it and Highway 630 used to be synonymous for their entire length. In the early 1990s, the portion of Highway 630 east of North Cooking Lake was realigned, resulting in the Highway 630 entering Beaver County and passing through Lindbrook and subsequently paved, while the original gravel route is still designated as Wye Road and links with Highway 14 near Hastings Lake. The portion of Wye Road within Sherwood Park is maintained by Strathcona County and not officially part of Highway 630.
