The District of Barriere is advising residents that this Spring the public should expect to see crews and equipment conducting ditch and shoulder maintenance along the Right of Way of a number of select roads within the District boundary.
Some of the roads that will receive treatment will include: Dunsmuir Road, Mountain Road, Lilley Road, Borthwick Avenue, Airfield Road, Barriere Town Road, Dixon Creek Road, Salle Road, Haigh Road, Spruce Cresent, Birch Lane, Summer Road, Dee Jay Road, Robin Drive, Oriole Way, Gibbs Road, Annesty Road and McLean Road.
The District advises that advance notice will be delivered to individuals whose property connects to affected boulevards. This will provide an opportunity to address any issues or concerns that residents may have regarding the boulevard that they care for.
The District will also be removing any material that has built up above the pavement edge to re-establish a gentle slope away from the road edge.
For areas where there is a continuous upward slope away from the road edge, the full road allowance will be cut back to ensure the road surface is above the boulevard as much as possible.
The municipality notes that all slopes will be left no steeper than five per cent (20:1) unless the existing ground profile makes this impossible to achieve, in which case the slope will be blended accordingly.
Boulevards will then be leveled and hand seeded with soil added where necessary.
District Roads Manager, Dustin Doherty, says, “Residents will be responsible for watering to ensure grass seed germinates and takes root and will be allowed to water on both odd and even days at the usual watering times.”
Doherty also noted that minor traffic delays can be expected.
“Please use caution around crews and equipment,” said Doherty, “Thanks in advance for your cooperation.”
