Starkey Road, south portion – pavement preservation

Category
Roads

Project Highlights

The existing paved roadway on the southern portion of Starkey Road, and Range Road 244 from Highway 37 to CFB Edmonton will be rehabilitated using a technique known as Mill and Fill. As the name infers, this is where the existing roadways are first milled and then subsequently repaved to replace the asphalt which was milled away.

What to Expect

  • Sturgeon County will maintain one lane of traffic throughout the duration of the project. If a road closure is required, residents will be notified in advance. If there are concerns, residents will have a contact number to reach out prior to the work taking place.
  • Micro-surfacing projects will be completed one week after work begins.
  • Mill and overlay projects will be completed three weeks after work begins.

Background

Micro-surfacing
Micro-surfacing is the application of a special coating to the top layer of asphalt that prevents oxidization and moisture penetration. The components are mixed on site and spread onto the road surface.

Mill and Overlay
Mill and Overlay is a multi-stage process that involves removing a specified thickness of asphalt using a million machine, and then paving over top of the milled surface.


The project includes:

Noroncal – micro-surfacing
Rge Rd 223 – micro-surfacing
Upper Viscount – side slope improvements
Rge Rd 244 from Highway 37 to County limits – Mill and Overlay
Starkey Road from bridge to Sturgeon Road – Mill and Overlay
