Routine care of County-owned roadways

The County cares for more than 2,000 km of municipal roads across all seasons. County road crews are responsible for seasonal repairs and upkeep of local roads, while the Province contracts Emcon Services for provincial highways.
Regular maintenance includes road repairs, cold mix overlays, cold-mix patching, graveling, dust suppression, hydro axing, mowing, and winter maintenance such as snow plowing. Learn more about these programs below.
