Spring road bans lifted for the County of Wetaskiwin

Annual road bans remain in effect

During county council’s June 6 meeting, Neil Powell, director of public works, spoke with the councillors about the state of the road bans.

Councillors ratified the the removal of the 2017 seasonal road ban of 75 per cent axle weight on gravel surfaces not identified in the annual road ban.

The bans were lifted June 6 at 8 a.m.

The director of public works says county staff met with the Highway Protection Committee May 31, 2017, and had resolved to lift the seasonal road ban, noting all local gravel roads would change from 75 per cent to 100 per cent, except the roads listed under annual road bans.
