Single surface treatment next for season of road work ahead

The County maintains more than 1,100 kilometres of roads, excluding private lanes and provincial roadways including Highway 62 and parts of Loyalist Parkway. Maintenance decisions are guided by provincial standards.

Each year, municipal staff develop a road rehabilitation and maintenance plan and capital project budget, which council reviews for approval.

Work on more than 75 km of rural roads will get underway in June.

County Council approved various tender awards on March 26 as part of the rehabilitation and preventative maintenance program for rural roads across the municipality.

The bulk of this work in 2024 is single surface treatment, also known as tar-and-chip.

Single surface treatment, a single layer application, is a preventative maintenance technique that will extend the life of a surface-treated road surface that is still in good condition.

Fifty-seven km of roads will receive a single surface treatment in 2024. Single surface treatment will occur on:

Crack sealing on various road surfaces in the County began May 2 and will continue through early summer.

The municipality has retained a contractor to complete the work, which may result in minor traffic disruptions and single lane closures.

Crack sealing is a maintenance technique to prevent water and debris from getting into existing cracks, protecting from further deterioration and extending the lifespan of the road.

The municipality notes studies have shown 75 per cent of unsealed cracks develop into potholes within three years, while one per cent of sealed cracks develop into potholes within three years.

Crack sealing work is planned for the following roads:

County Road 15, Civic Address 2511 to County Road 49
County Road 14, Highway 62 to County Road 15/County Road 5

    This is practice that at one time was done by the county crews on a regular bases, but was absent for many years though it maintains roads to get more life out of them. Next step, start grading shoulders on a regular bases so the shoulders do not break away.
