Lanark Highlands Township has adopted the Provincial "Minimum Maintenance Standards for Municipal Highways" Reg. 298/02, as the standard for year-round township road maintenance. Under the Municipal Act, these benchmarks were adopted to standardize levels of service for various classes of roads throughout the Province, and to specify reasonable response times to maintain or correct deficiencies on the roadways depending upon their class. Provincial, county, and municipal roads are classified differently within these standards based on Posted or Statutory Speed Limit and Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT.)

Winter maintenance activities and priorities are based on the roadway classification and the associated level of service, as well as legislated hours of work, manpower and municipal budget.

Class 4 
Speed Limit 80 kph (500 – 999 vehicles per day)

Class 5
Speed Limit 60 kph (50 – 499 vehicles per day)

Class 6
Speed Limit less than 80kph (0 – 49 vehicles per day)

Class 6B
Routine seasonal maintenance only (no winter maintenance)

Class 6C
No routine maintenance or inspection, use at own risk.
