Road Bans Start March 20, 2019

Road bans in Yellowhead County start Wednesday, March 20, 2019.

Check our Road Bans section or visit our Facebook page for the latest updates for Yellowhead County Road Bans.

Weather and road conditions are being monitored by Yellowhead County’s Infrastructure Department and road bans in Yellowhead County start on March 20, 2019 for this year.

Warm weather will prompt Yellowhead County Infrastructure Services to begin road bans in the spring. The road ban, when implemented, will restrict the weight for vehicles on the County’s secondary, rural roads and streets for the duration of the road ban.

The road bans implemented by Yellowhead County are due to seasonal conditions, specifically the spring thaw. Weight restrictions on all gravel/dirt and oiled roads will be 75 per cent unless specified otherwise. The road ban is aimed to reduce damage to County roads and decrease repairs and repaving to Yellowhead County’s 2,227 kilometres of roads.

Notice of the road ban when it is implemented will be posted on Yellowhead County’s website and advertised through local media and on our Facebook page. The County road ban is expected to last until June when the ground has less moisture content and begins to firm up.

For further information, contact the Infrastructure Department at (780) 723-4800.
