Mechanical Brushing Program

The Township of Scugog will be re-initiating our mechanical brushing program along the Township's road allowances. Mechanical brushing provides improved:

  • Site lines by removing vegetation, trees and brush for the driving public at intersections, curves, hills and other danger areas;
  • Clearances for larger vehicles that may cause damage to school buses, farm equipment and commercial vehicles;
  • Snow storage area adjacent to the road and reduces drifting
  • Winter driving surfaces by opening up the overhead tree canopy and roadside accesses for sunlight to reach the road surface to promote melting of snow/ice pack conditions;
  • Public Safety.

The mechanical brushing will start in the southwest quadrant of the Township and continue throughout the Township.  If you have any questions, please contact works@scugog.ca
