Annual road milling and repaving

Construction season is about to kick into high gear as the City’s Transportation Operations department starts on the annual road maintenance work on Monday, June 3.

As many residents and motorists will know, each year the City works to lay new paving to improve the road conditions around the city. To complete this work as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, while minimizing disruption to the community, it is done in a phased approach.

The annual road maintenance program is broken into three steps. 

  1. Step one is concrete repairs (if necessary). Crews will work to complete concrete repairs alongside the roadway.     
  2. Step two is road milling, removing the existing asphalt in need of repair and preparing it for new asphalt.
  3. Step three is paving, applying new asphalt to create a smooth driving surface for residents and motorists.

The timing of any lane reductions and road closures has also been planned to limit the impact on traffic, but minor delays are still expected in work areas. 

Motorists, especially motorcyclists, are urged to drive with caution as road surfaces will be uneven following milling. Motorists are thanked for following detours, posted signage and slowing down in construction areas helps to keep both motorists and staff and contractors safe.

The project is available on the City’s WebMap for further information. The WebMap is a dynamic online platform designed to enhance accessibility and streamline information for residents. The map provides residents with accurate and up-to-date information on road closures, facility closures and city projects and initiatives.
