Emergency Detour Route


Emergency Detour Route

The Emergency Detour Routes are a system of temporary detour routes paralleling most major highways in Ontario. Most of these are on county roads within the province that are not (currently) provincially-controlled (though many were former provincial highways). These routes are signed to be used in the event of a closure on a major road or 400-series highway, such as construction or a serious automobile collision.
