Lethbridge County is on target for meeting its 2016 budget for the Market Access Network however, due to higher than anticipated gravel costs the total number of miles was reduced to 4 ½ miles of upgrade and 12 ½ miles of full calcium base stabilization. Road reconditioning for the calcium chloride base stabilization treatment finished at the end of August, with bridge replacement and repairs scheduled for fall 2016 and into winter 2017 while the irrigation canals are closed.

Revenue generated in 2016 through the Business Tax and Special Tax have been utilized to improve roads and bridges as follows:
