General Information

South Huron maintains 350 km of roads, 40 km of sidewalks, 38 bridges, 44 culverts and 16 traffic signals. Our experienced staff is on the front line of safety as well as customer service in any given season. This includes summer construction projects and winter salt, sanding and plowing activities.

Seasonal Gravel and Dust Suppressant 

Gravel will be laid down during May and June on selected roads. Following completion of fresh gravel, staff will work with our contractor to lay down dust suppressant on all gravel roads. This process generally occurs over a three week period. Dust suppressant is used to both limit dust and help to compact our gravel roads. Questions related to this can be directed to our Transportation Services Department. Please refer to our website for contact information.  

Roadside Weed Spraying

Roadside weed spraying is a contracted service.

Application for Entranceway

All new road access points for residential, agricultural, commercial and industrial require an Entrance Permit.

The process for an Application for Entranceway is as followed:

1- Fill out an Application for Entranceway Form (free of charge).

2- Submit the completed form to email provided on the application.

3- Staff will review the application. Pending the nature of the permit, staff will set up a site meeting with the applicant if necessary.

4- The formal approval of the permit is completed by the Manager of Transportation Services.

Please note entranceways are placed at the cost of the applicant based on the specification provided by the municipality. If the specifications are not met, the municipality may contract the work out to meet the specifications. This work will be completed at the owner's expense. 

Streetlights

If there are any concerns with the streetlights located within the South Huron municipal boundaries, please fill out a Report a Problem form. Please note that the Municipality does not service any privately owned streetlights. 

Tree Program

The Municipality has authority to clear trees within the road allowance. Road allowance is 33 feet from the center of the road, both ways. Should a tree be deemed unsafe or dead, the Municipality will choose to remove the tree. Tree removal is tracked and each year the Municipality replaces the same number of trees that it has removed back into the respective community.

In the event that a tree is removed from in front of your residence, you can advise the Transportation Services Department if you wish to receive a tree to plant on your own property, in place of the one that was removed. Tree orders are completed every January and trees are picked up between April and May. It is the responsibility of the resident to pick up and plant the tree.  

911 Addressing/Street Sign Blades 

If you need to order a 911 addressing blade, please fill out a 911 Blade Request Form and submit to the email provided on the form.

Post Your Numbers
In emergency situations, seconds can make a like-saving difference. If you are a property owner, ensure your 911 addressing blade is posted on your house, business or at the end of your laneway and ensure they are easy to see form the road. A well-marked location is much easier for emergency vehicles to find when there is help needed.
Help Us Help You
Make sure your 911 addressing blades are displayed at your home or business properly. They should be placed on the same side of the road as your laneway, to allow emergency responders to find your correct location. If you do not have a 911 addressing blade on your property, please post one right away.  
More than Just a Mailbox
For emergency call purposes, you need to have more than just your mailbox labeled with your 911 address. Labeled mailboxes just help the Post Office deliver mail. Please ensure that you have your entrances marked as well.
Report Missing Street Signs
Reporting a missing street sign will allow for the emergency responders to ensure their response time is as quick as possible. Even though the responders know exactly where the roads are located, this will help ensure their response time is the best it can be. If you notice a street sign missing or even damaged, please report it to our Transportation Services Department and we will order a replacement blade.
