We will be rehabilitating select locations on multi-use pathways across the City!
The purpose of this project is to conduct major maintenance and rehabilitation to select locations on asphalt paths across in the city. These improvements are typically beyond our general operations and maintenance activities and require a higher level of effort.
In 2020, City Engineering staff conducted a pavement condition assessment on all paths across the City to identify areas with significant surface and subsurface deterioration, drainage issues, settlement, frost heave, cracking, and pavement quality degradation. Using the pavement condition assessment, City Engineering staff developed a list of key locations on multi-use pathways requiring significant rehabilitation that would fall beyond the scope of typical operations and maintenance activities.
In 2022, Council approved a capital project to conduct major maintenance improvements to asphalt pathways across the City. The proposed rehabilitation program includes the following:
Surface works: asphalt, concrete.
The proposed upgrades will improve transportation accessibility, connectivity, equity, mobility, safety, and sustainability by:
Removing tripping hazards.
Making multi-use pathways more accessible for people with visual and mobility impairments.
Making multi-use pathways smoother and more predictable walk, cycle, and roll.
Improving surface drainage.
Extending the useful life of City owned infrastructure.
