PROVINCIAL HIGHWAYS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2704

This program oversees the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of the provincial highway network and develops strategies to maximize investment results 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. The program delivers these activities through the use of internal resources and a variety of partnerships with our private sector service providers.

Sound investment strategies preserve existing highway infrastructure through the application of asset management principles, improve trade corridors leading to key international border crossings - including the Windsor Gateway, and integrate highways with public transportation.

Activities include environmental assessments, planning, engineering, property acquisition, rehabilitation, new construction, contract oversight, routine summer and winter maintenance (such as shoulder grading/snow and ice control) for all provincial highways and bridges. In addition to the highway network, the program is responsible for remote airports in northern Ontario and ferry services in locations across Ontario.

The program also develops policies and guidelines and sets highway and bridge maintenance, engineering, material and investment planning and construction standards.
