Road Maintenance

The Municipality of Calvin follows the Municipal Mininum Maintenance Standards [PDF: 145 KB] for road maintenance. Please read these standards. Any questions may be directed to Calvin’s Roads Superintendent, Chris Whalley by phone at the Calvin roads garage 705-744-2210 or by email to roads@calvintownship.ca

During the winter period, we require that no vehicle be parked overnight within the Municipal road allowance. It is the responsibility of the home-owner to ensure that snow removed from their driveway be pushed away from the road and be cleared away from the snow plow route on road shoulders as per By-Law 2004-013. See also the Notice from Calvin Roads Department issued March 2016.

The following schedule outlines the municipally maintained roads, private and unmaintained roads. These roads can be found on the Road Map [PDF: 128 KB]. An Entrance Permit Application [PDF: 116 KB] needs to be completed for a new entrance to a property.

Dump and Fill Waiver

Note that the Ministry of Transportation contracts out the maintenance for provincial highways in the Municipality (Highway 17 and Highway 630) to Transfield Services. They can be reached at 705-840-2200.
