Shoulder Pull Program

The Shoulder Pull Program for 2016 is now complete. Projects not completed in 2016 will be carried forward for the proposed 2017 Shoulder Pull Program. If you have any questions regarding these projects please contact Transportation Services at (780) 939-8252.

 

Purpose:

• To save the integrity and structure of the road without having to do a full reconstruction of the roadway; and to bring the road to the desired x-section and to improve drainage

• Bring the gravel material from the ditches back onto the road, working and packing the material into the road surface

• Approach culverts may be replaced or cleaned out and the area around them

• The road surface will be brought to design width of approximately 7-8 meters

• Ditch drainage will be improved and the crown will be brought back to the road surface

• Improve the x-section

• Improve the drainage

• The road will look narrow as the pushed sections are brought back to proper x-sections

• Slopes will appear to be steeper due to the new x-section and the removal of vegetation

• Gravel will be placed the first year (40mm)

• Additional gravel placed the second year (20mm)
