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.

2020 Projects

  • Rodeo Rd (Sterling Creek to South Horn Rd)
  • Forest Lake Rd (Union St to Lakeshore Rd) 
  • Schmidt’s Rd (Kent’s Mills to End) 
  • Union St (Forest Lake to end)

Speeding 

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.

Stay Informed 

Capital Road projects are approved annually by Council through the Operating and Capital Budget. You are encouraged to attend the meetings and provide feedback to Council and Staff.  

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