Miikanawan (Roads) Department

longplain

Long Plain has approximately 57 kilometers = 35 miles of roads, not including lanes.  We provide snow clearing services on roads, lanes and haul sand, dirt, and gravel for community members, when requested.  When necessary we assist in making fire guards upon request from the fire department.

Long Plain has one grader, two front end loaders, two tandem trucks, two tractors, one backhoe, and one lane scraper/leveller.  We also own a John Deere tractor that has a garden tiller and mower to maintain the ditches of the main roads.  The public works garage provides parking for the school buses, water trucks and sewer truck during the winter months. For the most part funding for the department operations comes through Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada. We also generate revinue by renting our equipment to other businesses.
