Culverts

A Culvert is a tunnel located at the end of driveways (road allowances) and across some roads to carry water from one area to another keeping it off roads and off properties.

The following are a few things a property owner can do to ensure the culvert is draining properly. Clear leaves and debris from the entrance to the culvert to ensure proper flow and drainage and don't add any decorative stones, plants, or shrubs around the area to prevent the same. 

Half Loads

Half loads are applicable on all Township of Selwyn roads from March 1st to May 1st of every year. Time lines may be adjusted according to the road conditions.

Street Lights and /or Public Area Lights

If you notice that a street light or public area light is out, please contact the Public Works Administrative Office - 705-292-9507 ext. 236. Thank you for helping to keep our streets and public areas safe!

Road Sweeping

In early spring, the road sweeping crew works very diligently as soon as the frost is out of the ground to free our roads of excess sand from the winter activities.

Each year we sweep over 300 km of Township roads.

We rotate yearly on what area is swept first between Ennismore, Smith South, Smith North and Lakefield.

The amount of snow and frost we receive will determine the starting date.

Winter Street Parking

To assist in snow-clearing operations, winter parking restrictions are in effect during the winter months in the Township of Selwyn.  Public Works reminds everyone to please refrain from parking on Township streets overnight to allow for safer and effective snow clearing.
