How to Use Roundabouts
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.

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.)
The Public Works staff is dedicated to providing a high level of customer service. Ongoing job development is provided to ensure that our equipment operators are fully qualified to perform their duties.
