FAQs

 How does the Town decide which roads to upgrade or fix?
Roads are assessed in two different ways:
  • Based on minimum maintenance standards, each of Caledon’s roads has a classification between 1 and 5. A road is patrolled between three times every seven days (class 1), to once every 30 days (class 5). Operations uses these patrol records to ensure that roads are maintained at an appropriate service level.
  • An in-depth roads assessment is carried out every year for all of Caledon’s paved roads. The assessment uses a vehicle which has a number of different types of instruments to scan roads. It provides a rating based on the number and frequency of defects encountered (pot holes, cracking, rutting, etc.).
Based on the allowed budget, staff then determine which roads are to be fixed depending on
road conditions, amount of use/traffic on a given road, approximate time needed for road repair.
When are roads fixed?
Work is scheduled for the season, typically from April – November.
What happens if road repairs are needed, but the particular road is not part of the Town’s plan?
Sometimes roads that may not be considered for repairs require attention due to heavy use. Staff may issue emergency repairs as needed.
Is the Town responsible for all road construction in Caledon?
The Town, Region of Peel and Ministry of Transportation are jointly responsible for road repairs
in Caledon.
