Road Construction

Road Construction

County Council approves of the "Local Road Construction Priority List" and the "Shoulder Pulling Priority List" annually. The needs of all areas of the County shall be given equal consideration when shoulder pulling/road construction programs are established. Programs are to be established by priorities based on consideration of the greatest need, the most benefit, alternative roads available, and the condition of the existing road relative to the amount and type of traffic.

The priority list above was approved at the June 28, 2016 Council meeting and will be reviewed in 2017.

Contract Road Construction

Camrose County contracts out local road re-grading projects of 2 km. to private contractors on an advertised public tender basis. The projects are surveyed and designed to an ARTAC 80 km./hr standard; the contract quantities are available for the contractors when bidding and the contract is awarded by Council.

County "Shoulder Pulling" Program

"Shoulder pulling" involves literally bringing up the material along the sides of the roads up to and including the ditch bottom, watering and re-compacting the material to reshape and restore the crown of the road, reshaping the side slope and bringing the road back to Its proper width, as well as cleaning the ditch. The County work-force undertakes the work from the completion of the gravel haul to freeze up in the fall.
