MAIN HEADING: PROVINCIAL HIGHWAYS MANAGEMENT PROGRAM - VOTE 2704

Back to the Ministry of Transportation Summary page

 

The Provincial Highways Management Program oversees the planning, design, construction, maintenance and operation of the provincial highway network and develops strategies to maximize investments in highway infrastructure.

The provincial highway network provides safe mobility for people and goods, and promotes economic, environmental and social sustainability. The Program delivers these activities through internal resources, partnerships and private sector service providers.

Activities include environmental assessments, investment 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. The Program is responsible for remote airports throughout northern Ontario, ferry services in locations across Ontario, first nations roads subsidies, road improvements in unincorporated areas, service centres, and the production of the official map of Ontario highways.

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