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.
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 2018 resurfacing program, based on information from the Pavement Management Model, customer requests and staff observations, includes the following major and local roads:

The roadwork will take place between May and September 2018. 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.
Please note, that paving work is dependent on the weather so there may be delays in the schedule. In addition, to maximize efficiency, staff and the contractor may be working at several sites concurrently resulting in some inconvenience or traffic delays.
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.
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 email Keith Martin, Manager of Roads, or call 604-853-5485.
