Single surface treatment program to begin on various roads starting June 11

June 11, 2024

Contractors retained by the County of Prince Edward will be undertaking a single surface treatment application on various roads beginning Tuesday, June 11.

This work is part of the 2024 rural road preventative maintenance program.

The following roads will be affected and are scheduled to be completed in this order:

  • County Road 17 (Civic Address [CA] 1331 to CA 2179)
  • Kelly Road (Kings Road to Welbanks Road)
  • Fennell Crescent (entire length)
  • County Road 38 (County Road 8 to end)
  • County Road 7 (CA 1788 to CA 3587)
  • Chuckery Hill Road (County Road 33 to Rosseau Crossroad)
  • May Road (County Road 4 to County Road 1)
  • Gilead Road (Matthie Road to County Road 2)
  • Swamp College Road (Baitleys Road to Danforth Road)
  • County Road 20 (County Road 33 to CA 613)
  • Pleasant Bay Road (County Road 33 to Bakker Road)
  • Partridge Hollow Road (County Road 33 to Stinson Block Road)
  • Elizabeth Road (entire length)
  • Valley Road (entire length)
  • Burr Road (entire length)
  • Fish Lake Road (Norton Road to County Road 49)

Minor traffic disruptions are expected to occur and single lane closures will happen during application. The operation is mobile within the lane closure, and little disruption to property access within the work zone is expected.

Single surface treatment is a preventative maintenance tool that preserves and reinforces existing surface treated roads to extend their life expectancy. It is constructed by spraying a uniform application of asphalt emulsion (liquid) followed by a layer of cover aggregate (stone). This will be followed by an application of fog seal, which is another layer of hot emulsion that is sprayed to hold the new surface together to reduce stone loss and reduced dust. Warm weather and traffic will assist with setting the cover aggregate into the asphalt emulsion.

The 2024 rural road maintenance and rehabilitation plan focuses on preventative maintenance techniques, such as single surface treatment and microsurfacing as determined by the asset management plan for the roads network. Funding for rural roads is allocated between preventative maintenance techniques and rehabilitation techniques, which continue to fluctuate in funding levels over the five-year plan. Visit the municipal website to learn more about single surface treatment and the road rehabilitation and preventative maintenance program.
