Oxford County Roads

The Oxford County roads department works to provide a safe and efficient road network for the movement of people and products within and outside the County.

Activities include:

  • Pot hole repair, crack sealing, shoulder care, guiderail and washout repairs to ensure Oxford County’s roadways are well maintained.
  • Installing signage, street lighting, traffic signals and pavement markings to keep everyone on track.
  • During the winter, installing snow fencing, plowing, salting, sanding and other maintenance keeps the roads as safe as possible.
  • Following the winter season, bridge and culvert maintenance, road sweeping and other maintenance ensures the infrastructure remains in good working condition.
  • Other activities include roadside mowing and weed spraying, dead animal pickup, tree trimming and more.

Winter Driving

Driving near snow plows

Oxford County snow plows work during the winter to keep the County’s major roadways clear and safe for travel, along with our municipal partners who are responsible for secondary roads and residential streets. All snow plow operators have an important job to do. If you spot a plow, follow these safety tips:

STAY BACK

County plow trucks typically travel below the posted speed limit, as slower operating speeds are more effective for clearing roads, applying salt and, if conditions are desirable, anti-icing liquid.

BE PATIENT

Crowding, tailgating or passing a snow plow can be very dangerous. A fully loaded plow truck cannot maneuver easily or stop quickly and has many blind spots. Don’t assume a snow plow operator can see you, especially if you are driving too close and visibility is poor, which is often the case.

DON’T TRY TO PASS

Passing a snow plow is never a good idea. Although they move slowly, the road behind an active plow is always safer than the road ahead. A good rule of thumb is to allow 10 car lengths between you and the plow since plowing creates a cloud of snow, which can decrease visibility and simulate whiteout conditions.
