Road network maintenance

Summer maintenance

The Roads Department proceeds to repairs and maintenance of roads surfaces, shoulders, road sides, bridges and culverts, surface drains, ditches as well as to the completion of various construction projects.

Wagar & Corput Weed Control Inc., the United Counties of Prescott and Russell and joint partners intend to control weeds along guard rails and posts along the following rural roadsides.

Consult the Public Notice.

Winter maintenance

The Roads Department sees to salt and sand application, snow removal and snow-clearing from overpasses on its 566 kilometres of road.

When a county road goes through a town and becomes the Main street, the snow removal on sidewalks and paved shoulders is then under the care of the local municipality, as stipulated in The Municipal Act.


Adopt a county road

This project, which is governed by an agreement between the United Counties and non-profit organizations, is aimed at cleaning up county road ditches. Citizens are encouraged to keep their community clean by cleaning pathways.

The required equipment, such as signs, safety jackets and garbage bags, is provided by the United Counties. Once the cleanup is completed, the United Counties take care of garbage bags and heavy objects and transport them to the garbage dump. As a thank you note, a poster bearing the name of the participating organization will be posted at each end of the cleaned section.
