Road Gravelling & Stock-pilling
The MD of Foothills has a three year gravelling program in place. The intent of the program is to gravel approximately one third of the gravel road network each year. The majority of the road gravelling is completed from early spring to late fall.
During winter months and due to lack of gravel in some quadrants of the MD, we haul and stock-pile gravel to logistically improve the up-coming years graveling program.
Equipment available to complete these jobs is:
- Seven tractor belly dump units
- Two truck and pup units
- Two end-dump trailer's
All units are used during summer months. Winter stock-pilling is done using truck and pup units as well as the end-dumps.
