The Roads Department constructs and maintains municipal roads and bridges, which involves grading, repairing and improving road and bridge structures, maintaining signs, culverts, ditches and shoulders, snow clearing and salt/sanding in the winter months and dust control and grading during the rest of the year. This department also looks after street lights and provision of a crossing guard at the Mono Amaranth school.
Roads maintenance is ongoing throughout the year. With about 270 kms of roads in the Town (540km lanes), it takes many hours for our equipment to work over the entire system. In a winter storm event, our operations employees are out on the job by 4:30 a.m. or earlier. Please be patient, we will get to your road as soon as we can.
Calcium chloride for dust control is applied once a year to gravel roads, usually starting in late May, and takes about a month to six weeks to complete. Maintanence gravel is also applied during this same time period.
If you are aware of a road hazard (i.e. a missing Stop sign, dangerous washout or dead deer blocking the road), please notify us at 519.941.3599, extension 225, during office hours (Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.).
After office hours, please call 519.939.2480 and leave a message (time, date and nature of emergency).
