Building Better Roads Program
In addition to regular road maintenance, the Building Better Roads program is aiming to improve another 206 lane kilometres of roadway and replace more than 20 kilometers of sidewalk during the 2018 construction season. Since the establishment of a dedicated road levy in 2014, 876 lane kilometers of roadway have been improved and 36 kilometers of sidewalk have been replaced under the program.
When the 2018 construction season is complete, the Building Better Roads program will have rehabilitated 1,085 lane kilometres of roadway. That’s roughly the one-way distance from City Hall to Salmon Arm, BC. The 56 kilometers of sidewalk replaced would create a path the distance from City Hall to Borden.
Projected 2018-2020 Asset Preservation Plan for Roadways, Sidewalks, Water & Sewer, Bridge and Structures
Are you curious if a roadway in your neighbourhood is slated for repair? You can view the Projected 2018-2020 Asset Preservation Plan for Roadways, Sidewalks, Water & Sewer, Bridge and Structures here, or view Ward 8 specific information here.
The asset preservation plan booklet has evolved over the last several years and now includes planned preservation projects on roadway and sidewalk assets, water and sewer assets as well as bridges and structures assets. These projects are collaboratively coordinated to recognize efficiencies that can be gained by performing work on different assets at the same time or holding off on locations until the proper sequence of rehabilitation can occur at a specific location.
Roadways & Operations will still be doing regular maintenance of roadways that are not listed in this plan. You can report a pothole or other roadway conditions here or call 306-975-2476.
