The “Municipal Exterior Flatwork Construction Best Practices Guide” has been developed by the
Ontario Good Roads Association (OGRA), Municipal Concrete Liaison Committee. The Committee
consists of members from various municipalities across Ontario; consulting firms; contractors; readymix concrete suppliers and associations.
It is the intention of this guide to provide a resource for municipal staff, consultants, contractors and
ready-mix concrete producers for municipal projects and to have a single resource for information
on municipal exterior flatwork across the province of Ontario. The Committee recognized the need
to have a guide that summarizes the specifications and best practices across the province in order
to provide consistency. Having everyone on the same page, no matter where they work, should
reduce problems and improve communication on municipal exterior flatwork projects.
