During road construction season, the public can expect to see crews making improvements to paved and gravel roads across the County.

The 80 km of road surfacing work in 2022 includes the paving of gravel roads, surfaced road overlays, re-construction and divisional road projects, bridge replacements, and other rehabilitation projects.

The County is also continuously working on Flood Prevention projects to address surface water management issues.

More information

Information for Motorists

Please note that progress of road construction projects heavily depends on the weather, and their finish may be delayed into the next construction season if the weather is consistently poor.

Find the latest information on road construction projects and traffic advisories on our Latest News. Motorists are advised to obey all signs, flag persons, and be extremely cautious when travelling through construction zones. Please allow extra time for travel.

The County thanks residents and travellers for their patience and cooperation throughout the construction season.

Type of Road Construction Projects

Grading involves digging out an existing road structure to re-align level or widen the road and building a new road from the bottom up.

Overlay work involves adding a new layer of pavement. This type of work can also include minor spot fixes and milling the surface.

Base paving work involves removing the top layer of gravel, repairing the base of the road if needed, then packing of the current road surface, and paving a layer of asphalt.

Microsurfacing involves the application of a thin layer of asphalt-like material to seal existing asphalt, which extends the life of the road. Microsurfacing is typically applied on local subdivision roads.

Intersection improvements can involve traffic light installations and/or the improvement, extension, expansion, or addition of traffic lanes.

Levels of Traffic Impacts

Major Traffic Impacts: These projects take place through most of the construction season. Signage will be in place and there will be full and/or partial road closures for the duration of the project with possible detour routes. Adjacent and crossing roads may also be affected by road closures and/or detours as well as heavy equipment traffic.

Moderate Traffic Impacts: These projects take anywhere from weeks to a couple of months to complete, and typically do not last for the entire construction season. Signage and flag persons are always on site. There can be temporary detours or periods of time with alternating lanes and/or rough/non-gravel driving surfaces while these projects are taking place, as well as speed reductions.

Minor Traffic Impacts: These projects take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to complete. Signage will be in place and temporarily lane restrictions may in place.
