Ledcor also maintains over 575 kilometers of roads in Red Deer County. We utilize a fleet of trucks and graders for snow removal on the hard surfaced roads in the subdivisions and hamlets through the County to ensure the roads safe for the public. Apart from the services mentioned above our summer work to maintain Red Deer County’s infrastructure also includes re-gravelling, drainage program, mowing, and pothole repair. Most of Red Deer’s infrastructure was built between 1950-1970 with a 50-60 year lifespan, which presents challenges and opportunities at this stage in the lifespan of the infrastructure. Ledcor’s decades of experience in the Highway Maintenance industry is key in delivering a high level of service to the County and public. The work is provided under a long-term/multi-year contract.
