May Road Conditions

Road Condtions:

Gravel road grading and preparation for the annual “Road Dust Control Program” commenced on May 3rd, 2017. The volume of rainfall experienced from May 10th to 14th caused rapid deterioration in the travelled surface of all gravel roads throughout the Village. The continued cool temperatures combined with extended periods of rain led to super-saturation of the roadway. The resulting moisture content caused the road structure to soften and become more susceptible to pot-holes, rutting, wash boarding, and generally poor driving conditions.

A second round of grading commenced May 15th and is anticipated to be completed by May 19th. The Village has engaged Billabong Road and Bridge Maintenance / Tiger Calcium for the application of liquid calcium chloride dust suppressant for the 2017 program.
