Comments on: The 2018 Budget and Taxes – 2 http://www.ngtimes.ca/2018-budget-taxes-2/ The Voice of North Grenville Wed, 18 Apr 2018 21:16:51 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.5 By: Jim http://www.ngtimes.ca/2018-budget-taxes-2/#comment-27298 Thu, 07 Dec 2017 02:42:37 +0000 http://www.ngtimes.ca/?p=10092#comment-27298 I’d like to understand the road re-building process as it’s a contributor to our taxes.

Bedell Road was widened by grading the existing mud/clay/gravel surface outwards. New gravel and base were added to improve stability and longevity I assume; the road was leveled and rolled. Finally in the November, the road was re-excavated to install two new drainage culverts.

I noticed this process during the reconstruction of Bedell Road, east of Dennison Road, and assumed it was a supply issue for the three or four culverts installed afterwards. However, the same process of excavating a finished gravel road occurred during the second phase of the Bedell Road project as well.

I have three questions:
1) when was the township aware the old culverts were rotten? (photos available)
2) what is the cost to re-excavate and install these culverts?
3) is the above process considered standard practice in road building?

Thanks.
