Road Construction and Maintenance

The County serves almost 20,000 residents and is comprised of 35 townships (including partial townships), 185 kilometres of secondary roads and 1,776 kilometres of local roads. Sturgeon County provides general maintenance on subdivision roads, municipal roads and roadside allowances. Transportation crews perform preventative maintenance activities throughout the year to improve the quality and extend the life of county roads, keeping them driveable and safe.Some of these work projects are ongoing and may occur over a six to eight week period.

Road construction may involve digging up an old road, brush removal, re-grading, patching sections of road, cleaning out ditches or even installation of new culverts. During construction, slower moving traffic, rougher road conditions, higher noise levels and possibly road closures or detours may occur. Signage for road construction, shoulder pulling, and bridge work is typically posted one week prior to a scheduled project. The residents in affected areas are also notified in advance.
