Calcium Chloride

    (Weather permitting, application will occur between May 23 to June 2)
  • Second Round: Application deadline is June 9, 2023
    (Weather permitting, application will occur between June 12 to June 23)

Oil is crude oil mixed with gravel; it is then spread and packed. Oil should last three or more years under normal conditions. Because oil is easier to mix and will last longer if the weather is hot and dry, the county waits until midsummer to apply.

Deadline for Applications

  • Application deadline is July 7, 2023


  • County roads $32.68/meter plus GST (New Application)
  • Gravel Secondary Highways $35.96/meter plus GST (New Application)
