Keep Safety in Mind

Slower speeds help to ensure the safety of both our workers and you. They also reduce the chance for damage to equipment and your vehicle.

Rocks can dislodge from the road surface when graders are working, so keep a safe following distance and pass only when it is safe to do so.

Unless otherwise posted, the speed limit on all County roads in ideal driving conditions is 80 km/h. Inclement weather can cause road surfaces to become more slippery than usual. Please drive with caution and follow the directions of all flag people in construction areas.
