The Department administers a road system composed of 'collector and arterial' roads. The purpose of this system is to provide a consistent level of service between local urban, industrial, commercial and recreational centers.

This distinguishes the County system from the local municipal road system that generally serves direct land access. The Department has approximately 650 km of road and approximately 148 bridges under its jurisdiction.

In addition to the 124 bridges on County roads there are 24 bridges on local municipal roads. Please refer to the County Road System Map to identify Bruce County Highways and the level of service associated with them.
