WINTER ROAD MAINTENANCE OPERATIONS

The Township is required to maintain the roads according to the Minimum Maintenance Standards on Municipal Highways, Ontario Regulation 239/02, as amended. http://www.ogra.org/advocacypolicy/minimum-maintenance-standards.html
The Township’s Winter Road Maintenance Policy describes the maintenance standards and procedures based on a priority system according to road class and public need. Snowplowing and sanding/salting operations are initiated according to a priority system that takes into account the volume of traffic on the road and the importance of the road in the overall road system, and these operations are always well above the provincial Minimum Maintenance Standards. For a condensed version of this provincial document, please see MMS - Condensed at the bottom of this page.
