The Town of Ponoka’s annual Pavement and Concrete Improvement Programs for 2021 are underway. The programs are an essential component of the Town’s Asset Management Plan and a key part of the Town’s commitment to the ongoing maintenance and continued improvement of municipal roadways and infrastructure.
The annual programs identify and prioritize aging roadways, sidewalks, curbs and gutters in Ponoka that require improvement and replacement based on the condition and priority of each piece of infrastructure within the Town’s roadway system.
Pavement and Concrete Improvements Planned Throughout Ponoka
Pavement and concrete improvements planned for 2021 may result in temporary road or lane closures and traffic controls as needed at the following locations. The pavement improvements planned at these locations will include pavement replacement, asphalt patching or chip sealing, depending on the improvement identified at each location:
– 50 Street (between Highway 53 and 48 Avenue) – Preparation work began this week for new pavement overlay and road repairs on 50 Street. Temporary lane closures and traffic controls will be in place while the work is completed.
– The intersection of 62 Street and 53 Avenue – Preparation work also began this week for paving and road repairs at this intersection. There will be a temporary road closure at this location while the work is being completed, with access available to local traffic only.
