July 2016 -Shoulder pull work done on gravel roads
Shoulder Pull Program
In conjunction with the 2015 Kneehill County Road study, Kneehill County has developed a shoulder pull program to enhance the longevity of our roads.
What is Shoulder Pulling?
With time and use, the surface material of the road gets spread out onto the roadside (shoulders) until the crown of the road is essentially squished out from the center to the sides. The shoulder pull maintenance brings the material back onto the main road surface and returns the road to its proper state, reducing road rebuilds, repairs on trouble areas, re-graveling costs, and grader passes.
What can residents expect?
Local residents can expect temporary road closures and traffic disruption in the area due to this maintenance program. Stay tuned to Kneehill County's social media and the Road Closures page of the website for closure updates and more information.
