Roadside Ditching

Improvements made to road shouldering and ditching help the overall performance of a road. 

  • Road shoulders help stabilize the edge of the road as they are often used for emergency stopping or pull-over areas.
  • Roadside ditches collect water runoff and provide necessary drainage area too. 

When road shoulders are properly graded, surface water runoff is able to drain to the roadside ditches properly. This reduces the amount of standing water on the road and alongside the road.

2023 Projects

  • Pevensey Road (Inlet Creek Rd to Proudfoot Rd)
  • Inlet Creek Rd (entire road)
  • Albert Street South (Sunset Dr to 84 Albert St S)


Those wishing to report vehicles who are in violation of posted speed limits are encouraged to report to the Ontario Provincial Police and request regular patrols.

For notifications of planned or unplanned road closures or work, please sign up to the CodeRED Notification System.
