Maintenance grading begins in mid-May, weather permitting.
Grading is done to improve drainage, rutting and reduce potholes. All gravel alleys throughout the City will be graded at least once (if required) and re-assessed for additional maintenance as required.
In some circumstances dust supressant may be applied to mitigate dust. (ie. around a playground)
The Roads department asks that you remove vehicles and other items from the alley that may impede maintenance (Traffic Bylaw No B-14/2016)
