Road Improvements & Decommissioning

Road Maintenance

Road maintenance standards will be improved as new technology and equipment become available to allow effective management of the watershed road system. Road maintenance activities are carried out to allow use by the watershed staff and prevent sedimentation problems. Maintenance activities include: grading and shaping of the road surface; maintaining ditches and waterbars and cleaning culverts and catch basins; installation, replacement and repair of culverts; mechanical vegetation control; application and replacement of rock ballast and surfacing; and removal of material such as rock fall from cut banks.
