Parking / Roads

North Grenville RoadsThe 272 kilometres of roads and all the associated infrastructure (sidewalks, bridges, ditches, entrances, etc.) are maintained by the Roads Division of the Public Works Department.

Parking

Parking in the North Grenville is regulated by By-Law No. 14-12, as amended.

Please be advised that parking on Municipal roads is prohibited between 11:00pm and 8:00am from November 15 to April 15. A vehicle which is parked in a manner interfering with snow clearing or removal operations may be issued a ticket and/or removed at the owner's expense.

Please note that parking in any Municipal owned parking lot is prohibited between 11:00pm and 7:00am year round.

Roundabout Usage

Roundabouts are designed to make intersections safer and more efficient for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.

There are a few key things to remember about driving roundabouts:

  • Yield to drivers in the roundabout
  • Stay in your lane; do not change lanes
  • Do not stop in the roundabout
  • Avoid driving next to oversize vehicles

See a video on the correct usage of a roundabout.

Maintenance

Summer Maintenance

Summer maintenance activities include grading, dust control, grass cutting, tree trimming, road sign installation/maintenance, construction projects, drainage, street sweeping, and more.

Winter Maintenance

Winter maintenance activities include snow plowing, sanding/salting, snow removal in urban areas, sidewalk plowing and more. These activities are carried out in accordance with the Minimum Maintenance Standards established by the Province under Highway Traffic Act.

Please note that it is unlawful to push snow onto or across a public road or onto another property without the authorization of the property owner. Dangerous accumulations of ice and snow are to be removed from a roof where they overhang public roadways, sidewalks or public access areas to buildings.

Entrances

The Roads Division oversees the installation of entrances onto public Municipal roads. Entrance permits are available at the Public Works Office. New entrances on streets in unassumed subdivisions or private (cottage) roads are installed by the owner or developer. All entrances on Municipal roads are done by the roads crew. Fee schedules for these permits are set by By-Law.

Fees for 9-1-1 signs are also applied. The numbers are assigned by the Building Division and the actual signs are made up and installed by the Roads Division.

County Roads

All County roads are owned and maintained by the United Counties of Leeds & Grenville. This includes County Road 43 and the roundabouts located on that road. Information about the County roads and their maintenance activities can be found on the Counties’ website, by calling 613-258-2548 or 613-342-9246 or visiting the Counties Office at 25 Central Ave W., Brockville.

Drainage

Roadside ditches, storm sewers, culverts or other similar draining features are installed to convey storm water from the road surface and roadbed to an outlet such as a pond, municipal drain, creek or other waterway. These roadside drainage systems are typically located in the Municipal right-of-way and are maintained by the Municipality. Drainage systems along County Roads are on the County right-of-way and maintained by the County.

Importantly, the primary role of roadside drainage is to drain the road, not adjacent private property.
