Public Works Projects
Each year in the Spring after the snow and ice have melted, the Public Works Department evaluates all the
roads in the Township. Depending on the severity of the winter and damage that occurs a list of roads is
developed that will be considered high priority for repairs.
Some roads require general pot hole repair while others may needs more extensive repairs. In addition to repairs needed due to the winter, some roads are scheduled for maintenance projects. These may include crack sealing, oil and chipping and micro-surfacing. It is only in severe cases that entire road surfaces are totally overlaid with new asphalt wearing surface.
This is the most expensive form of road work and is usually done only in severe cases or where multiple road way cuts have been made and the driving surface is very uneven.
