The Township of Algonquin Highlands strives to provide safe and reliable roads to allow for the efficient movement of goods, services and people throughout the community.

The Township maintains approximately 108 km of roads, covering an area from Carnarvon to Oxtongue Lake.  In the winter we also maintain County Roads 8 (Kawagama Lake Road) and 12 (Livingstone Lake Road).  

Reduced or 'half' load restrictions are imposed each year during the spring thaw to protect Township roads, when road damage is most likely to occur.  Half load restrictions will be posted in the News & Notices section.
