Road Conditions / Closures FAQ

Road conditions come from two different sources. For County roads, conditions are reported by our patrol foremen who travel the roads and report the conditions back. 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.

If an update has not been filed within 6 hours the road status will show as “not reported.” This doesn’t mean the roads haven't been patrolled or maintained. It means staff have not submitted an update for this specific reporting area. This may be due to similar conditions spanning a long range.

In Grey County, weather and road conditions can change quickly within a few kilometers. We try to provide the most up-to-date and accurate information to help motorists make informed decisions before heading out on the road. Actual conditions cannot be guaranteed.

There are four types of road systems located in Grey County.

  • Provincial Highways
  • County Roads
  • Local Municipal Roads
  • Private roads

Roads can be identified using Grey County’s GIS Maps.

 

Provincial Roads

There are five major highways in Grey County: 6, 10, 21, 26 and 89. These roads are the responsibility of the Ministry of Transportation. Questions can be directed to the Owen Sound office at 519-376-7350.

County Roads

County roads are the responsibility of Grey County and are named numerically (Grey Road 1, Grey Road 2 etc.).  Questions related to Grey County roads should be directed to 519-376-7337 or submitted by roads [at] grey.ca (e-mail).

Local Municipal Roads

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

Private roads are owned and maintained by individuals, groups of property owners, or businesses. These are normally found in private developments, waterfronts or cottages.

To report issues on a Grey County road you are best to call 519-376-7337. For issues on a Provincial highway (6, 10, 26, 21), please call 1-866-222-2640. For local municipal roads (sideroads, concessions, in-town streets), contact your municipality.

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.

Declaring significant weather events is permitted under O.Reg 239/02 of the Municipal Act.
