Road Ban Status
Due to favourable conditions, Lethbridge County has removed seasonal road bans as of 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 17, 2023. Some roads throughout the County remain under a permanent ban, and citizens and businesses should be aware of affected roads and maximum allowable weights. A full list of banned roads is available at https://lethcounty.ca/road-ban.
Should conditions change, road bans may be reinstated. Updates will be posted to the County’s website, social media, and app.
The seasonal road bans were implemented in March to maintain an acceptable and safe level of service and reduce the amount of damage caused by loading during periods when the road is most susceptible to excess deterioration. Damage to roads is costly to repair and placing bans on vulnerable roads help to keep maintenance costs down. Provincial highways are managed and banned accordingly by Alberta Transportation.

Lethbridge County thanks road users for their cooperation this spring in protecting our valuable transportation system.
