Road Bans and Restrictions

The Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 is responsible for the maintenance of all municipal roads.  A very important part of this responsibility is the protection of roadways during the spring thaw. This time of year can create serious structural damage to roads if appropriate measures are not taken.  As a result, road ban orders and restrictions are necessary during the spring season.  This is especially important on asphalt surfaces, as they are very susceptible to damage by heavy vehicles.

Who do these bans apply too?

These restrictions generally apply to heavy loads, and therefore are of greatest concern to truckers.  However, if you have any questions about transporting goods or products, or if you observe any activities which have the potential of damaging a roadway, please call 780-524-7602.

How do I know which roads are banned?

All road bans will be advertised.  Radio and written notifications are typically done. Most roads are not posted but bans are likely still in effect.  There are a very limited number of exceptions to the bans.

Road Bans

The M.D. may enter into an agreement for a permit with individuals or organizations for the transportation of heavy loads during road ban conditions. This agreement is applicable only during road ban season and security usually is required.  A greater focus on enforcement of bans has been initiated.
