Northumberland County Transportation & Waste Department is responsible for 503 kilometres of Road, 110 structures and two patrol yards. This covers an area of 188,149 hectares of predominately rural countryside with five urban centres. Port Hope and Cobourg are located in the west, Colborne and Brighton are located in the east and Campbellford is located in the north.
The County is roughly rectangular in shape following the north shore of Lake Ontario as its southerly border and Rice Lake as its northerly border. It is 62 kilometres long, 20 kilometres wide at the west end and 42 kilometres wide at the east end.
The County is divided into three maintenance areas, the west end, the north end and the south end. In the winter there are four areas created for winter control, to accommodate the increase with the inclusion of the downloaded highways. The west end is based from the Cobourg depot and the North and south areas are based from the Morganston Depot.
We have a complement of 15 tandem trucks that are used in maintaining our road system to meet the requirements of providing a well maintained transportation system.
