Measuring Winter Maintenance - What's Behind the Numbers

In a paper to the Transportation Association of Canada 2003 Conference in St. Johns Newfoundland, the results of OGRA's annual data collection efforts were reviewed and the format for measuring municipal roads and bridges identified. That paper also contained the results of a case study of winter control activities and costs. The committee continues to meet and this paper will highlight their efforts to date, which includes: a brief review of the activity map developed for winter maintenance; the measures used to monitor winter maintenance; a review of the case study outlined in the 2003 TAC paper and the process improvements that have resulted from that case study; results to date of the process mapping exercise undertaken by a group of municipalities and the best practices identified through that exercise; next steps. The numbers gleaned from OGRA's annual data collection efforts are reported on OGRA's website ( in a paper titled "Ontario's Municipal Roads- 2002". For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD number E211395.
