Planned construction timelines are a best estimate. Projects may be impacted by weather conditions and other delays.

Be sure to plan your routes and allow yourself extra time to safely reach your destination if traveling through a planned construction zone. Always pay attention to signage and be extra cautious in areas of active construction when workers are present.

Grey County follows an asset management plan to help determine which road projects to invest in each year. Decisions are based on several of factors, including condition rating and estimated lifespan. A 10-year construction and resurfacing map can be found online at www.grey.ca/roads
