The municipality maintains 1,100 kilometres of roads in Prince Edward County year-round with the exception of seasonal roads, private lanes, and provincially owned highways such as Highway 62 and part of Loyalist Parkway (Highway 33).
The roads are patrolled in accordance with the Minimum Maintenance Standards for municipal highways to identify and fix temporary road hazards such as downed trees, branches, snow, snow drifts, icy conditions, and more.
Learn more about the different ways the municipality keeps roads in good shape and passable during winter weather events.
