Speed limit reductions

For the safety of workers and motorists, the speed limit on Wallbridge-Loyalist Road and Foxboro-Stirling Road will be temporarily lowered from 80 km/h to 60 km/h from June 21 until asphalt paving is complete, which is estimated for the fall of 2024. 

The City’s annual pavement marking and line painting program repaints centrelines, stop bars and other pavement markings throughout Quinte West that fade during the winter and due to general wear from traffic. 

Line painting typically begins in late spring and lasts until the end of the summer. 

Motorists can expect minor traffic delays in working zones. If you encounter line painting, please give crews and equipment space to help keep everyone safe.

Crack sealing is the process of filling individual pavement cracks with an adhesive sealant to prevent entry of water or substances such as sand, dirt, rocks or weeds. 

The following roads will undergo crack sealing treatment throughout the summer of 2023: 

  • Highway 2 (from 282 Dundas St. E to Quinte View Drive)

Line painting will occur on roads throughout Quinte West in the summer of 2023.

Line painting on roads is an important highway safety feature that provides guidance to drivers and pedestrians. It includes lane lines, edge lines, centre lines and crosswalks.

Line painting is a moving operation. Flashing lights and signs are mounted on the back of equipment to warn motorists that line painting is being done.

Line painting tips for motorists

  • Slow down – line painting vehicles travel slowly so please slow down, stay alert and be patient when warned of work ahead
  • Keep back – stay at least 8 to 10 car lengths behind line painting equipment to avoid running over wet paint
  • Don’t pass – never pass a paint truck unless instructed to do so by a police officer; the paint truck will pull over to allow cars to pass when conditions are safe to do so

The City of Quinte West has many roads that have a ‘tar and chip’ surface treatment. This surface treatment method is also known as ‘chip seal.’ It is used on rural roads with low to medium volumes of traffic as a more cost-effective and durable alternative to asphalt paving. Tar and chip roads get resurfaced approximately every 7-10 years.

Learn more about the rural surface treatment process here.

The following roads are scheduled to receive surface treatment in the summer of 2023: 

  • McMaster Road (from English Settlement Road to Powerline Road)
  • Powerline Road (from Stoney Point Road to Bigford Road)
  • Settlement Road (from Paul Street to County Road 40)
  • Teal Road (from Jarvis Road to County Road 40)
