Gravel Roads and Spring Thaw

Gravel Roads and Spring Thaw

Spring is a rough time for gravel roads. The rise in temperatures, thawing of ground frost and melting snowfall cause water to seep into the base of the road, from both above and below ground. Driving heavy loads over this saturated material causes mud, ruts and damage.

With farmers hauling grain to market again, the increase in the volume of heavy traffic has put pressure on our road networks. Please have patience. Crews are hard at work to make the roads passable in these wet conditions, and once the surface dries out enough the roads will be graveled and repaired.

To help reduce damage to the road when hauling grain, we ask that farmers please choose a route to a paved surface that requires as little travel on the gravel as possible.

As of Wednesday March 25, certain Oil & Gas Industry haulers have been restricted to haul between 10 pm and 10 am, to help reduce damage caused by heavy loads driven during the heat of the day. We will also have crews working over the weekend to take care of frozen culverts, spot graveling and grading.

In the mean time, we thank you for your patience, and let’s hope for sunshine.
