Roads in Need

Roads in Need are roads that are structurally inadequate for their current traffic volumes and are more susceptible to damage from frost and water. These roads are unable to be repaired through the Pavement Rehabilitation program, which overlays new pavement on the existing road.

Through the Roads in Need program, the underlying cause of damage is assessed and repair could range from simply strengthening the section of pavement to a complete re-construction. The City established a separate program to deal with improvements to this group of road segments with the goal of addressing all deficient roadways over a ten year period.

This year, the following roads are scheduled to undergo repair as part of the 2022 Roads in Need program:

  • Jennings Crescent: Jenner Crescent to Jack Crescent
  • Lane west of Kenny Close: Kenny Close to End
  • Keith Close: Kendrew Drive to End
  • Kendrew Drive: Kent Street to Kingston Drive
  • Kirton Close: Kentwood Drive to End
  • Township Road 384: Range Road 271 to City Limit
  • 43A Avenue: 43 Avenue to 39 Street
