The Town of Essex is responsible for new construction, reconstruction and ongoing maintenance of Town-owned roads and sidewalks.
Our Infrastructure and Development Department coordinates and schedules municipal road and sidewalk infrastructure projects based on an ongoing evaluation to assess their condition and to prioritize repairs and upgrades based on funding availability.
The Town uses a balanced approach to funding the ongoing maintenance of municipal roads.
Information on projects approved for 2013 is contained in Appendix B of the 2103 Budget starting on page 154.
The Town is committed to creating walkable communities. As evidence of that commitment, we are attempting to construct new sidewalks in all urban neighbourhoods and upgrades are routinely made to existing sidewalks to make walking easier for all ages.
