How to Use Roundabouts

Off-Road Vehicles

The Town has approved use of Off-Road Vehicles (ORV's or ATV's) on municipal roads for the Stoney Point and Lighthouse Cove areas during the ice-fishing season from December 1 to April 30 between the hours of 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.  The Roads are listed below and do not include County Roads.

Snow Removal

Lakeshore has over 550 km of roads to clear during snow events and 12 pieces of equipment to complete the task. During snow events, priority is given to higher travelled roads. This means subdivision roads are plowed after the main roads are clear. Please be patient, we will get to your area as soon as we can. Lakeshore meets or exceeds the Minimum Maintenance Standards for Municipal Highways.

Remove your vehicle from the road during a snow storm to give room to our plows. These are very large trucks and cannot get down some of our roads if cars are parked on the road. Also, do not leave garbage or recycle bins in the roadway.  During snow events our staff can start at 4 am, long before garbage trucks and staff cannot plow roads with these in the road allowance.

All County Roads are maintained by the County of Essex (i.e. County Road 25, 27, 31, 42, etc.)

Facts:

  • Each vehicle is equipped with computerized controls for salt spreading
  • Salt storage capacity of 800 tonnes
  • 10 salt/plow routes
  • Avg. annual salt usage is 3,500 tonnes
  • A GPS system is installed on every truck to monitor for safety and environmental protection
  • We have continuous weather monitoring
  • We limit use of pre-treated salt
  • Staff can begin at 4 a.m. and run until 10 p.m. during heavy snow events. There is a maximum time allowed for staff to be on the roads before mandatory rest periods.
