Construction in the District season typically begins each spring after reduced loads have been lifted and continues well into the late fall. During this time, it may be necessary to restrict traffic or close roads. The District will do its best to keep interruptions to a minimum, especially during our busy tourist season. Road closures are updated regularly for your convenience.
Day to day road maintenance operations such as snow plowing/sanding/salting/shoulder grading, pothole repair and culvert maintenance are carried out by either your Area Municipality or by a private contractor. Street lights and sidewalks are the responsibility of your area municipality.
