Road and Bridge Maintenance
Bridge Posting Notice: Effective June 10, 2011, Jewel Bridge is posted for a reduced load limit of 5 tonnes - No Trucks.
Winter Maintenance Activities are performed from November 1 to March 31 of each year. The Town of South Bruce Peninsula completes its winter maintenance in accordance with the Minimum Maintenance Standards for Ontario Highways. Accordingly, the Town of South Bruce Peninsula roads are regularly patrolled to document conditions and call out plows. If you would like to call attention to an issue on your road please email or call 519-534-1400.
There is no practical way to plow the roads without depositing snow in driveways. While this may be an inconvenience to residents, the Town's main concern is to keep the roadways clear. Residents are responsible for clearing any snow from their own driveways, however, the depositing of snow or ice on any road or sidewalk in the Town is prohibited by By-law #14-2013.
Residents are reminded that as per By-law #34-2014, as well as the Highway Traffic Act, no person shall park a vehicle in such a position that it interferes with the removal of snow from any municipally-maintained road or sidewalk in the Town of South Bruce Peninsula. No person shall park a vehicle on any municipally-maintained highway, including a boulevard, between the hours of 2:00 am and 7:00 am from November 15th of any year to April 30th of the following year. Vehicles will be ticketed and/or towed at owner's expense.
The Town of South Bruce Peninsula has a sidewalk clearing by-law, #14-2013. In accordance with this by-law, sidewalks are to be cleared by the owner or occupant of each property by 9:00 am.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
