Road Maintenance

As part of Cochrane’s commitment to regular maintenance and repair of infrastructure, crews work throughout Town to maintain and repair roads, sidewalks and crosswalks. The maintenance season generally begins in April and runs through October with the majority of the work underway in the warmest summer months.

Roads crew’s efforts include, but aren’t limited to:

    Crack sealing

    Crosswalk, curb, and parking lot painting

    Line painting

    Manhole repairs

    Pothole and asphalt repairs

    Road and alley repairs

    Sidewalk replacements

    Solar-powered crosswalk installation

    Storm sewer maintenance

    Street sweeping

Crack Sealing

Crack sealing is done as a preventative measure to fill cracks in the roadways created by temperature fluctuations. If not filled these cracks will continue to grow and will begin to affect the structural integrity of our roads. When work is taking place the area may be dusty as the cracks will be blown out before before they are filled. Material is applied to limit spreading of the sealant. Please stay back from the equipment and workers and obey signs.

Line Painting

Refreshing the line painting on Cochrane roads is done on an ongoing basis, usually in the summer months. The work is completed at night when traffic is minimal to reduce disruptions. Please stay back from the line painting equipment and avoid, to the extent possible, driving on fresh lines to prevent paint from getting on your vehicle. If paint gets on your vehicle it is recommended to wash it as soon as possible with hot water at a pressurized car wash, the Town of Cochrane provides this information as a courtesy only and does not accept any responsibility for its use.

Sidewalk and Curb Repairs

Sidewalks and curbs throughout Town are repaired as needed, large repairs are built into the annual budget. This important work ensures Cochrane's sidewalks are safe and ready for summer. Please obey barricades and signs when work is underway.
