Road Maintenance

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. Material will be applied to limit spreading of the sealant. Please stay back from the equipment and workers and drive slowly and avoid driving on the freshly sealed cracks.

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. Work is underway May 28-Jun 18 to upgrade and repair sidewalks, wheelchair ramps, curbs and gutters in the downtown area. This important work ensures Cochrane's sidewalks are safe and ready for summer. Please obey barricades and signs when work is underway.
