Summer Road Maintenance
Completion and start dates for road maintenance services are all weather dependent. Summer is a busy time for our Public Works staff, who work hard to keep our roads, parks and facilities in good repair.
Once all the snow and ice has melted from the road shoulders and curbs, the Public Works Departments conducts winter cleanup operations. Street sweeping starts between May 1-31st, roads are swept to remove the accumulation of any sand and salt from the past winter. Street sweeping priorities are based on the volumes of traffic on roadways where winter road sand may generate excessive dust. The Downtown core and main streets are completed first.
Weather dependent, asphalt-marking operations usually take place in early June.
Liquid Calcium Application
In early July, Liquid Clacium Chloride is applied to gravel roads to stabilize the road base and to control dust created by vehicular traffic. Roads may be slippery when wet for a short period of time
