Summer Road Maintenance

Summer Road Maintenance

Summer is a busy time for our Public Works staff, who work hard to keep our roads, parks and facilities in good repair.

Regular summer road maintenance activities include:

  • Roadside mowing and brushing, which helps with sight lines and reduces the chance of the roads growing in
  • Culvert maintenance and replacements when necessary, to help with drainage
  • Ditching, to help improve drainage
  • Road surface sweeping, to clear sand residue left over on roadways after winter sanding operations
  • Pot hole patching, which helps eliminate minor imperfections in the road surface
  • Grading of gravel roads, to help eliminate washboard and improve water runoff
  • Application of a dust suppressant, to help keep dust at a minimum and stabilize the gravel surface
  • Application of fresh gravel, where needed
  • Speed/warning sign maintenance and replacement
  • Guidepost installation and maintenance
  • Capital projects as outlined in the yearly budgets

Did you know that Public Works staff also provide the following services?:

  • Landfill maintenance, including weekly covering of waste, weekly waste collection
  • Maintenance and grass cutting at parks and beaches
  • Outdoor washroom cleaning and maintenance
  • Boat launch and parking maintenance; dock installations and removals

Although staff do regular road patrols, sometimes stuff happens. If you see an issue that needs our attention such as a broken street light, pot hole, dangerous road conditions, a fallen tree or culvert washout, let us know!
