Road Maintenance and Snow Removal
The Town of Drayton Valley Public Works Department ensures that roadways and alleys are well-maintained and accessible to all residents throughout the year. There is a policy that sets out the criteria for snow clearing and collection. As a priority to the municipality emergency routes, main collectors and school routes take precedence over other areas. Please have patience during periods of heavy snowfall or other extreme weather conditions, as maintenance crews will clear your area as quickly as possible. Lane blading (grading of lanes and back alleys) and street sweeping are scheduled for spring and fall and at other times throughout the year as needed.
