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

Why are some roads showing as not reported?
If an update has not been filed within 12 hours the road status will show as “not reported”. This doesn’t mean the road hasn’t been maintained or patrolled. Staff may not have submitted an update for this specific stretch of road for various reason, like widespread similar conditions.
Do the reported conditions always match the actual conditions?
In Grey County, weather and road conditions can change quickly within a few kilometers. We strive to provide the most up-to-date and accurate information to inform drivers before heading out on the road. Actual conditions cannot be guaranteed.
