Design and Construction Process

 The Town is responsible for the design and construction of all municipal roads, bridges and culverts. The process may require two or more years.
  1. Surveying is conducted.
  2. An informal Project Initiation Meeting is held for new projects, with stakeholders, at the start of the design process.
  3. Design work continues, including modifications from initial public feedback.
  4. Public Input - A formal Public Information Centre is held later in the design process to present detailed design(s) to the community, at which time input is also requested.
  5. The final design is presented to Council for approval.
  6. Design projects generally begin in the spring and are completed in the late fall or early winter.
  7. Construction projects are typically tendered in the winter and early spring.
  8. Work generally commences in mid to late spring.
  9. Construction timing, particularly in or near waterways, may be constrained by environmental requirements.
  10. Every effort is made to minimize disruption to abutting properties during construction.

Due to the scope or scale of any individual project, timelines and steps may vary.

 Definition of Road Construction Terms 

Type of Construction Description
Asphalt Overlay: The process of replacing existing deteriorated asphalt surfaces with new. It also involves replacing portions of curb and rebuilding catchbasins and manholes.
Reconstruction and Improvements: The process of reconstructing an existing substandard road to current standards.
Reconstruction/Replacement: The process of completely rebuilding a road. This includes all the underground infrastructure and replacement of the road structure.
Surface Treatment: Surface Treatment is the application of an asphalt based emulsion binder and a granular based wearing surface. The process waterproofs the roadway and eliminates grading and dusting of gravel rural roads.
Urbanization: Urbanization is the improvement of a road with ditches to a road with curb and gutter, drained by storm sewers.
