The Town of Gravenhurst says their winter operations team is working tirelessly to address rutting and ice build-up on municipal roads.

The Town is focusing its efforts on ice-blading operations, which grade the road to a smooth (or smoother) profile by scraping off, peeling up the ice build-up on the roads. It is intended to improve winter ride quality and improve road surface friction.

Crews will be conducting these operations today. As temperatures warrant, ice blading will continue over the weekend. The goal is to complete the urban area, as well as some selected roads in the rural area.

The town reminds residents to ensure your vehicle is not parked on the roadways.
