The road ban on County of Grande Prairie gravel roads is no longer in place. Effective immediately, gravel roads have returned to 100 per cent axle weight loading, 24 hours a day, unless otherwise posted.   

The County issues road bans during spring thaw when gravel roads are especially vulnerable to damage.   

A road ban is a standard procedure put in place regularly on many Alberta roads by the Province and municipalities in order to protect important infrastructure during construction activities, maintenance or seasonal conditions such as spring thaw.  

For up-to-date road ban information 24/7, call the road ban information line at 780-513-3964 or visit www.countygp.ab.ca/roadbans.
