Rural Roads Construction
Whitehorse – The City has contracted Skookum asphalt to apply bituminous surfacing in the Cowley Creek subdivision and Fireweed drive in Mary Lake, and asphalt on the remaining intersections in Cowley Creek.
The City will commence some work in preparation immediately, and Skookum’s work will commence on June 18th. Work will include grading, applying emulsified asphalt oil, covering with crushed rock and finally sweeping excess gravel after curing the road surface.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane around equipment and access to all properties will be made available. The road surface will be temporarily rough and visual conditions dusty.
Please drive with care, reduce speed and be prepared to stop as directed by flag persons and traffic signals. Please obey traffic controllers and construction signage.
We thank you for your patience and consideration during the construction period.
For more information, please contact the City of Whitehorse Engineering Department at 668-8305.
