Ontario Provincial Standards for Roads and Public Works (OPS) manages the development and production of construction drawings, construction and material specifications to facilitate harmony and standardization in the design, tendering and construction of roads and public works accross Ontario. Established in 1984, OPS is owned jointly by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and the Municipal Engineers Association, and of equal importance is the involvement and support of many other organizations representing contractors, consulting engineers, manufacturers, and their associations.
The Municipal Engineers Association is working with Ontario Good Roads Association to develop the OPS-101 training course. The course is expected to be launched in late winter 2020. Stay tuned for updates.
