The 2019 construction season is here, and Grey County will soon begin road improvement projects across the region. Planned projects are outlined below and a full interactive map can be found online at www.roads.grey.ca.
Some projects will require road closures or traffic delays. Be sure to plan your route in advance and give yourself extra time to safely reach your destination. Always pay attention to posted signage and be extra cautious in areas of active construction when workers are present.
