Pothole Patching

Potholes that develop on hard surfaced roads are a fact of life in our climate. Freeze thaw cycles and rainy weather all contribute to the development of potholes (as does the amount of traffic on a road). The majorities of potholes develop around the spring thaw period but do continue to develop in periods when there is a significant amount of moisture.

The County has three dedicated patching crews that commence work in the early spring and carries on until the fall freeze up. Additional forces are put to work assisting in the pothole repair program during the most prevalent pothole times.

To report a pothole call Public Works Aldersyde Shop on 403-652-2390 or email Public Works. If it is an emergency after hours, please call 1-888-808-3722.
