Driving Safely on Icy Roads

With the fluctuating temperatures, ice has  accumulated on the secondary gravel roads.
Extra care should be given when driving with ice on the gravel roads.
Driving Safely on Icy Roads
  1. Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. …
  2. Brake gently to avoid skidding. …
  3. Turn on your lights to increase your visibility to other motorists.
  4. Keep your lights and windshield clean.
  5. Use low gears to keep traction, especially on hills.
  6. If possible, take a supply of sand to obtain wheel traction.

If you know the road you wish to travel on is a gravel road, take extra care to observe the condition of the road.

During the winter months, ice does not melt the same on gravel roads as it does on paved roads.

Please take your time and slow down!

High Park Farms Update December 7, 2018

We’re pleased to provide an update on High Park’s plans to develop enclosed veg houses at our facility.  These plans have been initiated in response to community feedback and action to further mitigate light from the facility.

 

In the growing process, plants go through two distinct phases: flower and veg.  The flower stage requires 12 hours of light per day and veg stage requires 17 hours of light.  While the greenhouse plants are in the veg state, they will be completely enclosed in the new veg houses.

 

The enclosed veg houses are scheduled to be operational spring 2019.  Design is currently underway and regulatory applications for the changes will follow prior to the commencement of construction.

 

We’re committed to our community and value the ongoing feedback and support.  We can always be reached at questions@highparkcompany.com

 

 

 

Ontario 511 winter driving update for provincial highways

The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario have released information regarding Ontario 511 to help motorists during winter weather conditions.

Keeping Ontario’s highways as safe as possible during winter weather conditions is a top priority.  Winter is coming, and snow has already fallen in many parts of the province.  Before heading out, check Ontario 511 for local highway information and to track snowplows in your area.

Track My Plow is now available on Ontario 511, so drivers can track the location of snowplows and salt trucks.  Before the end of the year, the Ontario 511 website will also provide drivers with Waze publicly reported incidents, traffic jams and weather hazards.  Ontario 511 can be accessed via Twitter (@511 Ontario), phone dial (5-1-1) or website (ontario.ca/511).

With well over 1,100 pieces of winter maintenance equipment on provincial highways to help fight winter storms, drivers are reminded to give working snowplows plenty of room.

Remember to slow down and drive according to weather and road conditions.  Please be patient, stay well back and never pass a working snowplow. Drivers need to take their time and drive defensively when there is poor road conditions to reduce the risk of being in a collision.
