Back Enderby Road was originally built as a wagon road to be used by local farmers and residents of the area. As years passed, the road was upgraded to a gravel surface and then was eventually paved with asphalt.

Although the road surface has evolved over the years, the structure beneath the asphalt has remained. The original structure was not intended to support an asphalt surface, nor the heavy vehicle and industrial traffic that currently travel the road in high volume. These factors combined have cause Back Enderby Road to deteriorate to its current condition.


In 2018, a road condition assessment was completed to understand current Township roads and projected life expectancies. Also completed in 2018, was an assessment of the existing drainage culverts throughout the Township. The assessments highlighted that Back Enderby Road is nearing the end of its useful life expectancy and drainage improvements are required to prevent future flooding damage.


The upcoming improvements will include reclaiming the existing asphalt and base, the addition of a granular base to improve road longevity, new asphalt and shouldering. Improvements to the drainage ditches and accesses will also be completed as part of this work.

It should be noted that similar Phase 1 improvements were conducted in 2020 and 2021, to the south end of Back Enderby Road. These improvements are a continuation of the work completed in Phase 1 and are part of the Township’s yearly road maintenance program.



Construction is expected to begin in mid-September and is anticipated to be complete by early October 2022. Typical hours of work will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, although there may be some requirement for weekend work as the project progresses. Please be aware that there will be heavy equipment working in the area as crews complete the project improvements.

Throughout construction, the affected portion of Back Enderby Road will remain open; at times the road will be reduced to single-lane alternating traffic. All efforts will be made to mitigate impacts to adjacent properties and industries. 

Homeowner Impacts:

As part of the project, we will be completing driveway aprons along this portion Back Enderby Road. To do this work safely and quickly, there will be part of a day when directly impacted residents will be unable to drive in or out of their driveway. Each of these residents will be notified in person by the contractor prior to construction. Timing of construction may vary, as it depends on weather and other logistics. The Township appreciates your patience and cooperation.


Dust is not anticipated to be a significant issue; however, dust control measures such as frequent use of water when excavating and proper storage will be implemented to protect adjacent areas and site personnel.

Updates on relevant construction activities will be provided once construction begins.
