City crews continue to address potholes and their emergence this spring throughout Williams Lake.
Gary Muraca is the Director of Municipal Services.
“It’s going been going really well actually. We’ve been out most days. Winter was long and it was really hard on the roads, so of course there was a lot of potholes that came up as a result of that. So we are throwing out about 4 tonnes of asphalt every day to do small patches and bottling.”
Muraca says crews address the majority of potholes on a complaint basis.
He says they are continuing to utilize recycled asphalt and are able to put hot-mix in times when they cannot purchase from plants through a hot-box and recycler purchased in the fall of 2014-2015.
“We are in the process of discussing where we are going to focus our efforts this year,” Muraca adds in terms of street rehabilitation. “We’re going to spend about $950,000 on capital improvements. We just have not determined the strategy or the locations at this time, but that is coming up.”
The item of pavement rehabilitation-street selection is on Tuesday’s regular council agenda.
