uring the month of November, the Roads crew focused their paving attention on patching utility cuts made during the repairs of water leaks, as well as filling potholes and rebuilding roadway shoulders for the coming storms. The crew was also able to finish crack sealing the rest of Jacaranda Dr.

The Roads crew also spent a significant amount of time assisting in the ongoing reconfiguration of the transfer site. The majority of their time out there was spent demolishing the boulders around the green waste area as well as processing and moving the asphalt millings pile.

Roads was able to assist the Water Division in repairing water leaks on a number of occasions.

Finally, the Roads crew spent a portion of time plowing and treating the roadways for snow and ice during the remaining days in November.
