The Township of Montague’s Road Needs Study summarizes road system surveys conducted during the fall of 2019. All of the roads under the Township's jurisdiction were included in this survey. The road network in Montague Township includes loose top, surface treated and asphalt roads with varying traffic volumes throughout. Presented in this report is a recommended Ten Year Capital Program and a Loose Top Maintenance Program for the Township’s roads. These programs have been developed based on the historical capital spending and are intended to be a tool for Municipal Staff and Council during decision making processes.

Grading and Shouldering

Grading of roads is dependent upon the impact the weather and traffic has upon the condition of the roadway. You cannot grade when the road is wet or about to receive heavy rain.

The first grading is usually light, which removes pot holes. The late spring grading shapes the road and prepares it for calcium chloride applications. Calcium Chloride is applied to freshly graveled roads and newly graded roads from May to June. This activity reduces the dust generated from traffic and helps maintain the graded shape of the road in the summer months.

Shouldering is conducted as required to ensure good drainage of water from the roadway.


Hot or cold mix materials are used in filling potholes, depressions, and restoring edges.


Selective subdivision roads are swept in late spring / early summer, preferably when wet to keep dust to a minimum.

Brushing and Ditching

These activities take place on selected lengths of roadway when growth of roadside brush begins to interfere with sight lines and road drainage.

Street Lighting

If a street light is out of order, please call the Township Office at 613-283-7478. We will need the pole number or the road name and the closest civic address number, in order to arrange repair of the street light.
