Federal funding to allow Vernon to take close look at which roads most need repairs

Seeking city's worst roads

The City of Vernon will be taking a close look at local roads to see which ones are most in need of repair.

The city has received $44,000 from the federal Municipal Asset Management Program to complete a digital pavement condition assessment for the city’s entire road network.

Results of the assessment will be used to prioritize projects based on rates of deterioration and assist in application of the “right treatment for the right road at the right time.”

Vernon Mayor Victor Cumming said “the digital pavement condition assessment aids the City in continuing our priority-based, road-improvement program.”

“Municipalities of all sizes are Canada’s builders,” said Garth Frizzel, president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.

“They own nearly 60 per cent of the public infrastructure that supports Canada’s economy and quality of life. With strengthened asset management practices, they are making infrastructure investment decisions based on sound and reliable data.”
