Gravel alley grading begins in May, weather permitting.
Grading is done to improve the driving surface of the alley by smoothing out potholes and rutting, and to improve drainage. All gravel alleys throughout the City will be graded and assessed for additional maintenance as required.
Alleys are maintained in two steps:
Step One: Grading is done by a grader to smooth out the surface. Each alley is assessed individually for further maintenance, including adding more gravel where necessary.
Step Two: Further maintenance is scheduled and gravel is added where necessary.
The Roads department asks that you remove vehicles and other items from the alley that may impede maintenance (Traffic Bylaw No. B-14/2016)
