Pot Hole Patching and Crack Sealing
Whitecourt experienced drastic temperature swings throughout the winter and spring seasons, which created ideal conditions for the development of potholes and cracks in the roadway. Pot hole patching throughout town has begun, and the annual crack sealing program will begin shortly.
