The County of Newell Paving Plan was developed by County Council and Administration through review of a gravel road study completed by AMEC Earth and Environmental in 2001. The plan identified key gravel roads throughout the County that would be better served as paved connectors between hamlets, villages, and towns, as well as other paved surfaces.

Originally, the plan was set to take place over a ten (10) year period, however with the introduction of the County of Newell Water Project a portion of tax revenue previously dedicated from general revenues to paving was redirected to the water project.

Outstanding paving projects that have been suggested through the study are listed below, and a map outlining the location of proposed improvements can be found by clicking here.
