You can't stop Mother Nature!
But with advanced technology and practices you can ANTICIPATE and PREPARE for winter driving.
The Maintenance Technology Project is an exciting joint project by the Construction & Operations Branch and Owen Sound District, Elsinore Patrol of the Ministry of Transportation. It is designed to help build an information-based maintenance management system for carrying out winter operations. It will review and demonstrate, at one location, promising new winter maintenance technology and practices under Ontario conditions, and then assist with technology transfer activities.
Ontario is highly involved in discovering and testing innovations to winter maintenance practices. Along with updates on the project's progress, this site will provide links to related projects in which ministry staff are involved as well as links to other related sites.
