The concerns around the quality of asphalt being used on highways in Ontario is also a problem for municipalities.  

The Ministry of Transportation, in response to a scathing report by the auditor general has announced it will no longer be giving contractors bonuses for asphalt quality.  Joe Tiernay, the Executive Director of the Ontario Good Roads Association says deteriorating asphalt quality was a province wide problem that also hit municipalities. He says the Hot Mix Producers Association set up a committee to look at the problem and the OGRA was part of the group.  They hit on a number of possible reasons for the poor paving and are attempting to solve them.  

Tiernay adds his group is continuing to monitor the situation in order to keep Ontario roads performing at a high level to keep the driving public safe. (bd)
