Road Rehabilitation Program

Road Resurfacing and Rehabilitation Program

This program focuses on addressing roads in poor condition as well as keeping good roads good, by actively maintaining the pavement. This balanced approach works to repair deteriorated roads while preventing the deterioration of good roads in the future—keeping the good roads good while not forgetting about the bad roads.

2020 Road Resurfacing and Rehab Program 

A total of 15 km will be completed in 2020. The Town remains committed to improving road infrastructure throughout our community.

Approaches and Strategies:

Pavement Preservation

  • Concept of regularly maintaining a road to maximize its life expectancy
  • Frees up time for repairing other more damaged road
  • Lincoln began this best practice in 2014
  • Since 2014, 93 kms of good roads have been restored and $8.8 million has been saved over the long term

Pavement Edging

  • Hot asphalt overlay technique that has proven to be a cost effective strategy to eliminate “edge creep”—the deteriorated edges of a road
  • When a road is given this treatment, it is then considered for a new waterproof seal and top course wearing surface for better ride comfort

Road Shouldering and Ditching

  • A proactive measure that helps with the overall performance of a road
  • Roadside ditches collect and convey surface storm water runoff and also provide a necessary drainage outlet for the road base
  • Road shoulders often serve as an emergency pull-over lane, and also help to stabilize the edge of a road
  • When properly graded, surface water runoff is able to sheet drain to the roadside ditches, reducing the amount of standing water alongside the road

Crack Sealing

  • Cost effective pavement preservation strategy that provides a waterproof seal where cracks in the road surface have formed
  • Cracks in pavement allow moisture and other elements to penetrate the road base which can lead to further cracking, potholes, or eventually a major pavement breakdown
  • To help withstand the cold and hot weather change, a hot polymer/rubberized product is used to keep a tight seal in the crack of the road
