Responsive Government

Highway and Area Closures for Transportation Incidents

Ensure all responder agencies (OPP/police, MOL, MOECC, fire departments, municipal public works, etc.) have a coordinated response system to ensure that highway or area closures can be dealt with in a quick manner to ensure Ontario's roads are clear of issues/accidents as quickly as possible. Specifically for highway closures, consider the cost of citizens sitting in traffic to be higher than having government agencies respond quickly (on a standby basis) instead of hours later (on an on-call basis).


This will assist with ensuring highway closures can be resolved quickly to get Ontario citizens on their way.
