This program works in mature neighbourhoods to reconstruct or maintain:

  • Streets
  • Sidewalks, curbs, gutters
  • Street lighting
  • Collector roads

The type of work depends on the condition of infrastructure and coordination with other projects in a neighbourhood. The three types of work are:

  1. Reconstruction (roads, sidewalks, curbs, and streetlights are replaced)
  2. Overlay (roads are repaved and sidewalk trip hazards removed)
  3. Microsurfacing (roads are resealed with thin asphalt layer)

Reconstruction and overlay are funded in the capital program and microsurfacing is an operating budget service. The capital program is supported by a dedicated tax in the operating budget and contributions from the Alberta Government. The proposed 2012-14 Capital Budget is based on a 1.5% tax increase per year in the operating budget dedicated to this program.
