The Town of Essex is responsible for new construction, reconstruction and ongoing maintenance of Town-owned roads and sidewalks.

Long-range planning

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.

For information on plans for road improvements, please review the Roads and Roadside section of the Capital budget, available at www.essex.ca/budget.


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.
