The City of Calgary's summer road maintenance program is getting an early start this year. The crews finished sweeping the final Spring Clean-Up routes the week of May 9th, 2016. Between March and the beginning of May, the City swept over 15,000 lane kilometres and collected over 18,000 cubic meters of material.
The Roads crews summer maintenance activities include:
- Repairs to sidewalks, curbs and gutters, guard rails, fences, and concrete barriers
- Repairs to roadway surfaces, such as cracks, manholes, potholes, and sinkholes
- Inspecting, grading and repairing gravel lanes
- Maintaining over 1,400 hectares of boulevard green space along major roadways
- Summer sweeping – continued road cleaning where needed throughout the summer

Summer maintenance work typically begins in mid-June, but with this warmer weather, crews will get an earlier start. This work is very important to keep Calgary roads safe for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. Please watch for crews and give them plenty of room to work this summer as they repair streets, sidewalks, gutters and back lanes.
