Annual Strengthening and Resurfacing Program

Niagara Region maintains 1,738 kilometres of roadway across Niagara. Keeping these roads in safe and optimal conditions requires ongoing review and maintenance.

Each year, we inspect one-third of the regional road network. Our focus is on regular preventative maintenance which can extend the life of a roadway.

Our strengthening and resurfacing program increases the lifespan of road sections by improving the structural integrity. The program includes:

  • Replacing selected cross culverts
  • Milling off the top course of asphalt or doing a cold in place strategy of the road section
  • Repairing cracks in the base course asphalt and replacing concrete curbs that are in poor condition
  • Paving new top course asphalt, line marking and adding granular to shoulders
  • Waterproofing existing culvert structures
