Spring Roads Update
Thursday, April 18, 2019
Here is a spring roads update from Rocky View County’s Transportation Services.
Street sweeping has commenced in urban settings where higher amounts of winter road sand accumulate. Balzac will be swept first, followed by Watermark. Langdon sweeping is scheduled for the week of April 23. Bearspaw, Springbank and Bragg Creek will round out the schedule with all work completed by mid-May, barring any significant weather events. The program is three weeks ahead of schedule compared to last season.
Snow fence removal is underway and should be completed also ahead of schedule, allowing agricultural users access to the fields.
Pathway and sidewalk inspections will commence in late April, with repairs to follow once the data has been compiled into a ranked order of priority.
Calcium-stabilized gravel road maintenance has been completed on Township Road 274A/275, Wildcat Hills, Township Road 264 and Range Road 282. Range Road 14 maintenance is scheduled before the end of April. The stabilizing of new gravel roads will begin once the frost has left the ground and temperatures are within the best-practice parameters.
Road bans are in place for heavy vehicles, and current estimates have them being lifted by June 3, similar to previous years.
Painting pavement message markings is scheduled to commence in July and is expected to be completed in August, dependent on weather conditions. This includes painting of crosswalk lines, stop bars, railway crossings, lane merge arrows, and lane designation arrows on County’s paved and chip-sealed roads.
