Servicing the traffic spikes

The traffic spike assembly was cleaned and oiled on February 13th to make it safe for tires.

Each winter, the assembly fills up with sand from the rain water draining through the ally. If enough sand accumulates, the spikes can not retract all the way down. It takes 2-3 years for this to happen.

We clean the spikes annually in the spring.
