The Township has completed a "Road Management Plan 2007 to 2017" which is intended to:
  • Provide a clear definition and inventory of the road and bridge/culvert system 
  • Identify deficiencies in the road and bridge/culvert system and provide an estimate of the costs to improve the deficiencies.
  • Provide a recommended ten-year program for construction to address the deficiencies
