Wet weather causing road maintenance challenges 

By Lindsay Advocate

This past fall has been a particularly challenging season for road maintenance across the municipality. Consistently wet weather has prevented road crews from carrying out scheduled grading of gravel roads. Due to the amount of moisture still in the road structure, if graders are used, roads will be further damaged and will compromise safety.

We recognize that the condition of the gravel roads right now makes for difficult driving conditions and requires drivers to slow down. We are continuing to monitor road conditions and are ready to deploy equipment as soon as conditions safely allow.

Director of Public Works, Bryan Robinson states, “In some cases, both gravel and asphalt road conditions are below what we consider acceptable. We are doing everything possible with the available resources to service the roads to an acceptable level. In the short term, please be patient and help us by reporting unsafe conditions, either by phone or online.”
