Sidewalks

In 2016, a visual assessment of the sidewalks within the Hamlets of Strome and Galahad identified extensive cracking, spalling and heaving/settlement. The consensus from previous Councils of both hamlets was to maintain the sidewalks for as long as they were repairable and safe for pedestrian usage; once they were no longer repairable or safe for pedestrians, they were to be removed.

Exceptions to this rule include both main streets and all locations in which there exists a sidewalk to a public facility, as well as two blocks on Lady Helen Avenue West in Galahad, which were built over a sewer line.

As sidewalks are removed in both hamlets, the concrete from the sidewalks will be repurposed to build up the walls of the existing lagoons in both Strome and Galahad. Currently, there are no plans to replace the sidewalks that have been removed.

The following maps of Galahad and Strome highlight the sidewalks identified for removal, along with the sidewalks that will remain in place:

Truck Routes

The following maps highlight designated truck routes in Galahad and Strome:

Establishment of Truck Routes

Truck routes have been established to provide direction for heavy truck traffic in the hamlets to preserve the road surface.

No vehicle larger than a one (1) ton or combination of vehicles having a gross vehicle weight (GVW) in excess of 4,500 kg shall enter within the Hamlets of Strome and Galahad except on designated truck routes as specified in Schedule C of the Traffic Bylaw.

Should a situation arise whereby a vehicle larger than a one (1) ton or combination of vehicles having a GVW in excess of 4,500 kg must travel on a hamlet street, not designated as a truck route, a person or company may apply to Flagstaff County for an Overload/Weight Restriction Agreement.

Delivery vehicles while making a delivery and recreational vehicles are exempt.
