Starting at 10 a.m. on March 19, a road ban will be in place on all County of Grande Prairie gravel roads. During the road ban, all gravel roads will be at 75 per cent axle weight between the hours of 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. unless otherwise posted.   

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

Motorists are encouraged to contact the County Road Ban Information Line at 780-513-3964 for daily up-to-date road ban information, available 24/7.  

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.
