Range Road 203

Over the next few weeks, Range Road 203 from Township Road 510 to Township Road 504 will be upgraded from a oil road to an all-weather hard surfaced road. This involves stabilizing the road base with soil cement before applying two coats of “chip seal”. While this process is much different from the process to pave a road with asphalt, the end result will seem similar to residents and the travelling public and will result in a road that is not dusty when it is dry, nor muddy when it is wet.

During this time, the road may be closed to allow crews to work safely; however, access for local landowners will be maintained during construction. Please take alternate routes during this time.

Township Road 492

Work continues on TWP 492 between Highway 834 and Range Road 181. Most of the road has been stabilized and received a “tack” coat. The next step will be to apply a final tack coat and chip seal surface. This should go quickly but during this time, please try to take another route to your destination if possible. This schedule is weather dependent.

During this time, there will be crews on the road who need to work safely, and road coatings being applied that can make your vehicle dirty. Finally, there will be loose rock chips present for some time after application that can scratch your vehicle. The final chips will be brushed off after the surface has cured (generally after a few weeks).

Please be advised the speed limit is 50 km/h while posted.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during construction. If you have any questions, please call the Beaver County Service centre at 780-663-3730.
