Recognizing the obvious?

Here's a new road sign I hadn't seen until today.   Mill Road, running south of the King Road, between the 7th and 8th Concessions, has a supplementary sign announcing that the Mill Road is also a gravel road.   I believe Mill Road has been a gravel road for approximately 180 years and now I am a little curious about the origin and reason for this sign.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. me too barry! i don't think i noticed this on the other gravel roads. i thought maybe to discourage drivers using mill for passing through??
    in the winter there were several incidents with school buses and other vehicles that were stuck which had to temporarily close the road.

  2. I can imagine it won't be gravel for long (sadly) with the proposal sign at the conservation area I've been looking at all summer. Wondering how we can stop the development. *sigh*
