Chip-sealing on Apex road reduces dust
Thanks to the City of Iqaluit for their efforts on the Apex Road.
The dust problem is greatly reduced, as will the need for a grader to groom the road every day.
However, the huge amount of very expensive crushed rock now sitting on the shoulder has to be salvaged and used for other roads in great need of surfacing before the snow flies.
Another issue with the Apex and other roads throughout the community is the enthusiastic skill of the bulldozer operators in scraping every blade of grass, every other living thing on the side of the road, totally denuding this precious blanket of vegetation from our road side and further contributing to his already ugly community.
With a little effort and care, this city of ours could look a lot better than it does now.
