Roads

The RM maintains and manages over 800 km of road in the RM. This includes 526 km of gravel roads, 115 km of dirt roads, and at least 40 km of non-Emerald Park paved roads. Alongside gravel grading and cement crack filling, RM Public Works staff are also involved in many other aspects of road maintenance.

Snow Removal

After a heavy snowfall, public works staff prioritize the order in which roads are plowed. By prioritizing the most important routes, the greatest number of residents can travel safely.

In Emerald Park, public works prioritizes:

  • Bus Routes
  • South Plains Road
  • Kingsmere Avenue
  • Sapphire Drive, and
  • Emerald Drive

After public works staff plow these routes, focus shifts to the remaining streets, roads, crescents, and bays, followed by walkways.

Outside of Emerald Park, public works prioritizes:

  • Bus Routes
  • High Traffic Main Roads
  • Paved Roads, and
  • Country Residential Subdivision Roads

After public works staff plow these routes, focus shifts to the remaining grid and farm access roads.

Dust Control

The RM manages dust along gravel roads using magnesium chloride. This chemical is only applied adjacent to a residence with a written request from the landowner.

If you would like your road managed for dust, please fill out the attached form and submit it to the RM Office before April 15th in any given year. You can drop off the form at 100 Hutchence Rd., Emerald Park, SK S4L 1C6, or mail it to info@edenwold-sk.ca.

Upon completion of the work, the RM will invoice the applicant for 50% of the municipality's actual product cost and application for 200 meters. Product and application applied beyond the 200 meters will be invoiced to the ratepayer at 100%.

Custom Grading

The RM graders may undertake grading of lanes during the summer months at a rate of $225 per hour, with a minimum charge of $112.50, plus applicable taxes.

Please fill out the attached form and submit it to the RM Office to request custom work. You can drop off the form at 100 Hutchence Rd., Emerald Park, SK S4L 1C6, or mail it to info@edenwold-sk.ca.

Public works staff will grade private roads when a grader is previously scheduled to be in the area. Custom grading is not available during the winter. If you are a non-ratepayer or represent another municipality, you or your municipality can request grading at a rate of $225 per hour, with a minimum charge of $112.50, plus applicable taxes, subject to Council approval.
