Financial cost sharing of construction of roads to new residences in the agricultural area of the County is available. Policy R14 has the details.
The goal of Cypress County is to re move snow and ice from our roadways as rapidly and efficiently as possible while keeping roads open and essential traffic flowing. Clean, dry pavement should not be expected following a storm.
All roadways within Cypress County have been categorized into groups for maintenance operations. The levels are explained and displayed in Policy R23 Winter Maintenance Operations Level of Service.
During a winter storm event, passable roadways are critical for Emergency Response Units. Upon request, the Public Works department will aid as required. As a result of the urgency resulting from a winter storm event all other routine operations become secondary and winter maintenance operations will occur. Roads will be plowed, sand and or salt applied according to the established priorities as directed by the supervisor. The levels of service are established based on traffic volumes, public safety, and access to emergency facilities.
All roads within Cypress County are prioritized into groups for maintenance operations. These groups are displayed in Policy R23 Winter Maintenance Operations Level of Service and outlined below.
Level 1 (RED)These roadways are the highly travelled hard surface, oiled dust abatement and gravel roadways within Cypress County. These roads hold the majority of traffic volume and act as a link for emergency services. Level 1 roadways will be maintained for all snowstorms meeting the criteria outlined earlier.
Level 2 (ORANGE)These roadways consist of residential subdivisions, Level 2 hard surface and oiled dust abatement, and Level 2 gravel roadways. These roadways carry primarily rural residential and agricultural traffic. These roads will likely connect to a provincial highway or a Cypress County hard surfaced roadway.
Level 3 (BLUE)These roadways and trails are within the hamlet boundaries. Some roads may lead directly to a provincial highway or a Cypress County road of a higher level.
Level 4 Fee for Service (PINK)These are private residential driveways require a fee for service as outlined in the Master Rates Bylaw.
* At the direction of Council, residential subdivisions will be plowed only, and no sand or salt will be applied to road surfaces.
