NOTICE: Effective April 21, 2017, there is a county-wide 50% weight ban in place.
From 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 April 21, 2017, at 8 a.m. here. (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 AgreementsA 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.
