For provincial highways, the conditions come directly from the Ministry of Transportation.(link is external) Their reports are pinpointed to their location and applied to the surrounding 10km radius.

Local roads are the responsibility of Grey County’s nine member municipalities. Local roads have common names such as Henry Street, Concession 1, 3rd Line etc. For questions related to these roads, contact the local municipality.
Private roads are owned and maintained by individuals, groups of property owners, or businesses. These are normally found in private developments, waterfronts or cottages.
Grey County may declare a significant weather event if the current or forecast weather conditions could make County roads dangerous to travelers. Although this is most likely to happen during the winter season, a significant weather event could be declared any time of year.
The declaration of a significant weather event isn’t a notice of reduced service levels or a road closure. It is a warning that it may take longer than usual to bring the roads back to optimal conditions. Road users should consider this warning when deciding whether to travel.
The following conditions may cause a significant weather event to be declared:
- Significant snowfall over a 24-hour period
- Significant rainfall over a 24-hour period
- Ice formation and/or freezing rain
- High sustained winds leading to drifting and reduced visibility
- Cold temperatures that make de-icing ineffective.
