Transportation and Environmental Services

During this time of uncertainty, the Transportation and Environmental Services (T+ES) Department will continue to maintain its services with the exception that we will not be open for in-office transactions or to attend non-essential in-person meetings. The County Trails are closed to the public until further notice. Please consult the T+ES web page on the Bruce County website or on-line processes to access services.

If there is a service required that cannot be addressed through the website, contact us.

The Bruce County Transportation and Environmental Services Department administers a road system composed of 'collector and arterial' roads, which distinguishes  the County system from the local municipal road system. This system provides a consistent level of service between local urban, industrial, commercial and recreational centres. The Transportation and Environmental Services Department also coordinates Waste Management for the County.
