What is the 2020 Asphalt Paving and Resurfacing project?

The Public Works - Capital Projects division undertakes an annual program of roadway paving and resurfacing aimed at renewing and extending the life of the Town’s road infrastructure. Candidate roadways are identified through various condition assessments, maintenance histories, resident complaints, and future development considerations. The 2020 program incorporates approximately 7km of roadway repaving and resurfacing.

Covid-19: Policies and procedures are in place to ensure that the work meets all public health directives and best practices for construction.


Road Closures and Traffic Control

Currently, the Covid-19 pandemic has greatly reduced traffic volumes throughout the Town. Although the longer-term impacts on traffic volumes are not clear, it is anticipated that traffic will be lower than average throughout the construction period.

The 2020 project will trial the use of echelon paving on the Bethesda, Vandorf, and Ninth Line segments. Echelon paving uses multiple paving units operating side by side to simultaneously place asphalt across the entire width of the road, similar to snow removal activities on the 400 series highways.

This will require full road closure (local traffic permitted) during construction activity. However, it is anticipated to reduce the overall duration of construction and ultimately reduce the impact to residents.
