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 March 30, 2020, 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 Use Agreements, 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.

Current Restrictions / Closures

li-road-closed-300x193Recent poor weather and seasonal freeze/thaw patterns have damaged the structure of a significant number of County roads. Due to the large amount of County roads currently damaged and requiring maintenance, Lamont County is in the process of analyzing what is needed to create a repair/rehabilitation strategy.

The county understands that the public may be inconvenienced during this time. However, with the kind cooperation of ratepayers, residents and stakeholders, a successful and sustainable maintenance program can be created to fit within current budget restraints. The maintenance and improvement of Lamont County’s infrastructure is at the forefront of priority and focus.

Conditions can change rapidly; therefore, it is essential that the public obey all road closure signs and barriers for their safety. 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 and will be required to appear in court and pay restitution.

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