Construction Update

Posted on

TWP RD 512 from HWY 630 to RGE RD 195 TerraCem cementing Phase 1 has been completed.   A light tac coat has been applied and is re-open for traffic and public use.  Chip Seal needs to be applied to achieve the hard surface. This is not asphalt, but the end result will seem similar to residents and the travelling public, and will result in roads that are not dusty when dry, nor muddy when wet.

TWP RD 512 from HWY 834 to RGE RD 191 Phase 2 has been completed and has received the first lift of chip seal.

RGE RD 191 from TWP 512 to the Town of Tofield boundary Phase 2 has been completed and has received the first lift of chip seal.

Please exercise caution and observe traffic/construction signs when travelling these roads.  The contractor will return in the next couple weeks to apply the remaining  chip seals.  During this time, the roads may be closed to allow crews to work safely; however, access for local landowners will be maintained during construction.  There are potential hazards to the public and vehicles during the construction process.  This can include heavy machinery, dust or mud, and road materials such as gravel, asphalt coatings, and rock chips.  After the roads are stabilized, a tac coat will be 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 will be 50 km/h while posted, as there will be crews on the road who need to work safely, and it will help keep the loose rock chips more stationary.

This schedule is weather dependent.

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.
