The latest provincial road map shows the highway ending 16 km (9.9 mi) south of Mistissini, while the pavement does continue to the town itself.

Municipalities along Route 167
The Quebec Department of Transportation has proposed to extend Route 167 North, in the direction of the Otish Mountains, approximately 250 km to the northeast of Albanel Lake.
Construction began in February 2012. The 240 km extension to the Stornoway Renard Mine was completed in 2014.
The first deliveries of liquified natural gas, by truck, with the new road were made on June 2016 to the Renard Mine.
