Road Construction

Posted on


Township Road 502 from Range Road 201 to Range Road 205 are being upgraded

The first phase (cementing the base) and second phase (1st layer of chip seal) of construction has been completed.  This will have the appearance of loose gravel which will be present for some time after application and can scratch your vehicle. A second layer will then be applied and lastly there will be a final sweep of the road to remove loose rocks after the surface has cured generally after a few weeks.  Please be advised the speed limit will be 50 km/h, as there will be crews on the road who need to work safely, and it will help keep the loose rocks chips more stationary.

Range Road 124  from Township Road 463 - 470 Construction

This portion of road will be receiving treatment of a soil stabilizer called Gravelock that will:

  • Increases density/bearing capacity
  • Help eliminate the absorption of water
  • Reduces dust on unpaved roads

During this time, portions of the roads may be closed to allow crews to work safely; however, access for local landowners will be maintained during construction. Delays are to be expected.  We encourage patrons to take alternate routes until the projects are complete.  The entire stretch will not be closed at once, we will begin on the north end at Highway 26 and work our way south.

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 coat of chip seal will be applied that can make your vehicle dirty.

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.
