View the current weight restrictions
Effective May 30, 2022, at 8:00 a.m. 

From time-to-time, Lamont County Roads are restricted because of the road condition, maintenance, or seasonal conditions such as spring thaw. 

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.

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 Use Agreements, please contact the Public Works Office at 780-895-2547.

Lamont County has centralized the overweight/over-dimensional permits with Roadata Services Ltd.

Lamont County Public Works prioritizes upgrading and maintaining Lamont County infrastructure. Please obey all road closure signs and barriers; anyone found not complying with road closures can be charged $243 for failure to obey a traffic control device. Anyone found responsible for damaging signs or barricades can be charged with criminal mischief.

If you find a county road in need of maintenance, please submit an Online Service Request or contact Public Works at 780-895-2547.
