The County is responsible for administering all construction activities on County roads. This may include engaging an engineering consultant to provide design, contract administration and construction inspection of theses projects on its behalf. A draft design is presented to Technical Advisory Committee-Roads and Bridges (TAC) for preliminary approval before the project is tendered. County staff works closely with the consultant and local road authorities in developing the project’s design and overseeing its administration throughout the design, tender and construction phases and payment approval.
County Technical Advisory Committee - Roads & Bridges
The County’s annual capital construction program is developed in consultation with the County Technical Advisory Committee-Roads and Bridges (TAC). TAC’s membership is comprised of County staff (Manager, Roads & Bridges, Operations & Development and Construction Technologists, and Director, Financial & Physical Services) and the road authority managers from each local municipality. The TAC committee also serves as a forum to review County road operational issues and matters of interest to both the County and local municipalities. TAC meets 6 times per year and meeting minutes are provided to County Council in its regular monthly meeting agenda.
