The Town of Okotoks maintains gravel and paved back lanes. Road crews check the network every spring and schedule repairs in priority order as needed. Maintenance starts once crews have finished spring clean-up, and continues throughout the summer.
If you have a gravel lane flagged for repair, a sign will be posted to indicate that the Town crews will be working in the area.
You can help us get the job done quickly and cost-effectively by removing any obstacles for the duration of the repair, such as:
- Cars, motor homes, trailers
- Construction bins, stored material
- Debris, excavated dirt piles
- Low-hanging tree branches
- Black, blue, green carts
Town crews schedule work around waste collection days where possible, but in the event if repair work must fall on a regular waste pick-up day, please put your carts out as you normally would. The repair crew will move them aside while they work on your section of lane, and put them back before moving on.
The following are signs that a back lane is due for repair:
- Poor drainage
- Severe potholes, ruts, washboards
- Emerging/worsening sink holes
- Too much/too little gravel
- Low/high manhole covers
If you notice any of these issues, you can report them using the Click ‘n Fix app or by calling Transportation at 403-938-4372.
