Road Bans

road-ban-sign-300x217From time to time Lamont County Roads are restricted because of the road condition, maintenance, or seasonal conditions such as spring thaw. View the current weight restrictions, effective June 19, 2018, at 8:00 a..m. (effective until further notice).

Remember, driving overweight on soft spring roads creates ruts that are very expensive and time consuming to repair. Please consider your fellow rate payers and abide by the weight restriction by-laws. Be kind to your roads.

Road Use Agreements

A Road Use Agreement may be entered into for companies who will provide a Bond for the portion of road being used. For further information on Road Bans, please contact the Public Works Office at (780)-895-2547.

Overweight/Overdimensional Permits

Lamont County has centralized the overweight/overdimensional permits with Roadata Services Ltd.
