PROVINCIAL HIGHWAYS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2704

This program oversees the maintenance and operation of the provincial highway network and invests strategically in highway infrastructure.

The program manages activities to deliver a provincial highway network that is safe, provides mobility for people and goods, and promotes economic, environmental and social sustainability. Investment strategies include preservation of existing highway infrastructure through the application of asset management principles, improving trade corridors leading to key international border crossings; including the Windsor Gateway, and integrating highways with public transportation.

Activities include routine highway maintenance; 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 and sets highway maintenance, engineering and construction standards. In addition to the highway network, the program is responsible for remote airports in northern Ontario and ferry services in locations across Ontario.
