Summer Road Maintenance Program
Early to mid May the Public Works Department begins to apply dust suppressant on the gravel roads throughout the municipality. Each season approximately 1,500,000 liters of 35% Liquid Calcium Chloride, Magnesium Chloride, (or approved equivalent) is applied to the roads to limit dust created by vehicular traffic.
Each spring, April and May, the Township conducts winter cleanup operations. Hard surfaced streets and sidewalks are swept to remove the winter sand/salt accumulated over the winter season. Street sweeping reduces the amount of dust raised by traffic in our urban areas. Gravel roads are regraded to remove any accumulation of sand on the road or shoulders.
Part of the summer maintenance program includes tree trimming, tree removals, and ‘day lighting' of intersections to maintain visibility for the traveling public.
Tree removal/trimming on private property is the responsibility of the property owner – not the Township of Brock.
