Road Resurfacing Program

The City of Abbotsford manages approximately 2,100 lane kilometers of road infrastructure estimated to be approximately $1.4 billion in value. Road infrastructure is vital to the community and ensures the City can support a vibrant economy by ensuring the movement of goods, services and people from point A to point B in an efficient and safe manner. 

In order to maintain the roads, the City utilizes a Pavement Management System which, based on pavement condition, traffic volume and vehicle weights, predicts how the pavement will deteriorate over time. Staff use this model to predict when the roads should be resurfaced to obtain maximum service life, at least cost, and to avoid expensive reconstruction.  

2020 Project Overview

In order to maximize the service life and keep the City’s road network safe, Council approved a budget of $4 million to apply surface treatment on an annual basis. The 2020 resurfacing program, based on information from the Pavement Management Model, customer requests and staff observations, included the following major and local roads:

2020 Project Schedule

The roadwork will take place between May and September 2020. Information signs will be installed at each work location informing customers about the construction activity. In addition, fronting properties will be notified by hand-delivered letter about five days before the start of construction.  

Hours of Work

Construction activity will be restricted to the hours of 7:00 am to 7:00 pm (Monday to Friday), and 7:00 am to 5:00 pm (Saturday). The Contractor will provide a minimum of 24 hours advance notice of any required service or traffic interruptions that will affect area residents, businesses and utility owners. 

Access During Construction

The contractor will be required to keep streets open to through traffic during normal business hours, although some redirection of traffic may be necessary. Traffic control personnel will be present to direct vehicles and pedestrians safely. Temporary parking restrictions may also be required for the proposed works. 

Thank you for your patience. If you have any questions about summer maintenance, please contact Keith Martin, Manager of Roads, or call 604-853-5485.
