Road Ban Status

Road Ban Status - None None

Seasonal road bans will be issued on County paved and hard top roads starting Wednesday, March 13. Bans are put in place each spring to maintain the integrity of our road infrastructure as temperatures rise.

Lethbridge County has an extensive road and bridge network used by citizens, businesses, and producers. Heavy truck traffic places a high demand on these roads, which are more susceptible to damage this time of year due to the frost thaw. This damage is expensive to repair and placing bans on vulnerable roads helps keep maintenance costs down.

Most hard top roads will be banned to 75% loads (with some exceptions at 50% and 90%) as defined in the Alberta Commercial Vehicle Dimension and Weight Regulation. All gravel roads will remain at 100%.  Gravel roads and haul routes will be monitored as we progress through the spring season.

Heavy vehicle and equipment operators should be aware of affected roads and the maximum allowable weights. A full list of banned roads is available on our website

Alberta Transportation manages provincial highways, and also issues bans on those roads. A list of bans on these roads is available on the provincial website.  

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