Rural road work ahead

Work on rural roads kicks into high gear in the coming weeks as maintenance and rehabilitation will take place on more than 42 kilometres of County roadways in the coming months.

Council increased funding in the 2022 capital budget for rural road rehabilitation to offset inflationary pressures and ensure the same amount of work can take place this year as occurred during the 2021 season.

Seventeen kilometres of roads will receive double surface treatment, also known as tar-and-chip, in 2022. These road sections are in poor condition and must be rehabilitated, as maintenance techniques are no longer a suitable solution.

Double surface treatment will occur on:
Hiscocks Shores Road, from Smokes Point Road to the end
McFaul Road, from County Road 1 to County Road 2
Stinson Block Road, from Edward Drive to Civic Address 1036
Gardenville Road, from County Road 64 to Smokes Point Road
Harbard Road, from Gardenville Road to Harbard Lane
County Road 13, from County Road 16 to Civic Address 508
Potter Road, from County Road 5 to Norton Road
Mountain Road, from County Road 7 to Chuckery Hill Road
Old Milford Road, from McKinley Crossroad to Miller Road

Close to 16 km of roads will receive a single surface treatment in 2022. Single surface treatment is a preventative maintenance technique aimed at extending the life of the road surface that is still in good condition.

Single surface treatment will occur on:
Fenwood Crescent
Taylor Drive
County Road 13, from County Road 8 to Civic Address 508
Tripp Road
Davis Road
Palmer-Burris Road
Shannon Road, the section South of Ridge Road
Hanthorn Street
Old Orchard Road

Additional preventative maintenance work and rehabilitation work will also take place this summer.

Micro-surfacing, a preventative maintenance technique used to extend the life of the roadway, will be applied on:
County Road 1, from County Road 2 to Chase Road
County Road 1, from Highway 62 to Matthie Road
County Road 8, from Picton boundary to County Road 17
Loyalist Parkway, from east of Hillier to Civic Address 19140

All of the work outlined above is scheduled to get under way later this spring with expected completion by the end of summer.

The Operational Services Department team will also be out this spring with regular maintenance work like street sweeping, gravel road resurfacing, and guide rail repairs.

County staff are also working with a geotechnical engineering consultant to develop a plan to address the newly rehabilitated Victoria Road, which exhibited surface failures following a rapid thaw earlier this winter.

A series of deep exploratory excavations along the roadsides will take place in the next several weeks; motorists can expect to experience minor delays as this work takes place.
