Prince Edward County’s Operations Department’s Roads Division oversees upkeep and maintenance of nearly 1,100 kilometres of roads. The Municipality maintains all roads in Prince Edward County year-round with the exception of seasonal roads, private lanes and provincially owned highways, being Highway 62 and part of Loyalist Parkway (Highway 33). The roads are patrolled around the clock to identify and fix temporary road hazards such as downed trees, branches, snow, snow drifts, icy conditions, and more.
Road Construction and Closures
From time to time, planned or emergency construction may result in partial or complete closures of County roads. In extreme and prolonged winter weather conditions, roads may also be closed for public safety.

When working on municipal property (including roads, sidewalks and ditches), a permit is required. The following types of permits are available at the cost outlined in the Prince Edward County Fees Schedule. The following permits are coordinated by the Operations Department:
- Special Event Road Occupancy Permit: Required for special events, such as parades or athletic events, requiring partial or full road closure, traffic disruption, etc.
