Roads Study

In 2022, the Township hired WSP/Golder, an engineering firm to do a comprehensive roads needs study. The total project cost of $49,774 was fully funded by a grant from the Ontario Municipal Modernization Fund. The findings were presented to Council in December 2022 and are now posted for public viewing.

The study assessed the state of the municipal-owned roads in the Township. Overall, the Township’s network average ratings for hard surfaced roads were “Good” due to our ongoing pavement preservation and maintenance programs, and “Fair” for gravel roads. You can find a summary of the key findings, an A-Z list of roads and their conditions and the full report at engagefrontenac.ca/roads-study. The study provides accurate data to help Council make informed decisions when deciding which roads to prioritize for road work in the short-term and long-term.
