Road Resurfacing Program

Road Resurfacing

Road resurfacing involves grinding out and repaving the road surface to restore it to its original state. The City uses contractors to complete the following road resurfacing work:

  • repair concrete curbs, sidewalks and catch basins
  • raise and adjust manholes
  • restore any damage to sod, driveways and private curbs resulting from the construction

If your street is due for resurfacing, you will receive a Notice of Construction Letter (sample) indicating when work will take place on your street and who to contact if you have any concerns. Work on each street takes about six weeks to complete.

City contractors use hot asphalt during the road resurfacing process that takes time to cool once on the roadway. Ensure that all members of your household are aware of this potential hazard.

Bridge Maintenance

Bridge PowerwashingAs part of our annual bridge maintenance schedule, we power wash bridges to remove the salt and sand that has accumulated over the winter. This helps prevent expensive structural repairs and extends the life of the bridge. Power washing also removes graffiti.

City staff inspect the condition of the bridge to ensure that it is structurally sound and to determine whether the bridge requires rehabilitation or maintenance.
