Gravel Reclamation in the RM of Portage la Prairie:

Every spring, the shoulders of the roads in the RM are pulled up - one or both shoulders at a time depending on road width.

Once any pulled vegetation has wilted/rotted (approximately 1 to 2 weeks) and after all other roads have been bladed, the other side will be scraped over.  During this process the windrow is mulched to separate out some of the gravel.

Blading and mulching continues with the other side of the road.  The windrow may or may not disappear as every road is different.

Once spring blading is completed the roads will be further assessed for additional gravel application.  Main arterial roads receive additional gravel on a regular basis.
