Backlane repair

The City maintains approximately 1,200 km of gravel and paved back lanes. Each year, from mid-June to mid-October, The City inspects the entire back lane network and schedules any needed repairs in priority order. Indications that a back lane needs maintenance may include:Gravel lane repair sign

  • Poor drainage
  • Severe potholes, ruts, washboards
  • Emerging/worsening sink holes
  • Too much/too little gravel
  • Low/high manhole covers

Repair notice

If your back lane is flagged for repair, we’ll post signs in your community like the one shown here.

Help us complete the annual program quickly and cost-effectively by removing any obstacles for the duration of the work. Obstacles include:

  • Cars, motor homes, trailers
  • Construction bins, stored material
  • Debris, excavated dirt piles
  • Low-hanging tree branches
  • Black, blue, green carts*

* When lane repairs fall on a regular waste pick up day, please set your bins on the grass, driveway, boulevard or sidewalk right next to the back lane, but not on the back lane as normal. Leave enough space around your cart to avoid any surrounding objects. As a general rule of thumb, if you can walk between and around your carts, you have allowed enough space.

Please note: Lanes that remain cluttered will be taken off the current year’s repair schedule.

Once the annual program is complete

If you notice issues in your back lane that were not addressed during our annual program, let us know with an online Service Request.
