PROVINCIAL HIGHWAYS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2704

This program oversees the maintenance and operation of the provincial highway network and invests strategically in highway infrastructure to support the development of safe and strong communities in Ontario.

The program manages activities to preserve public investment in existing infrastructure and improve the movement of people and goods on Ontario's highways. Investment strategies include a focus on improving trade corridors leading to key international border crossings and integrating highways with public transportation.

Activities include routine highway maintenance; winter snow and ice control; highway planning, engineering and detailed design; highway rehabilitation; new construction and construction administration.

The program also develops operational policies and guidelines, sets highway maintenance and construction standards, manages research and develops new technologies. In addition to the highway network, the program is responsible for remote airports in northern Ontario and ferry services in various locations across Ontario.
