Road Bans

Posted on: May 2, 2015

[ARCHIVED] Road Bans in the M.D. Continuing

To limit the amount of damage to M.D. roads during the period of spring thaw, the following weight restrictions and timelines have been imposed by the M.D.’s Road Ban Committee.
As operators, you must make yourself aware of the load limits associated with the roads you drive. As the cost of road repairs is a principal concern to all ratepayers in our municipality, we ask that you assist us in minimizing the amount of damage.
The Municipal District of Bonnyville No. 87, being the road authority, may at its sole discretion ban any and all roads at any given time due to road deterioration.
We realize that some of our roads will deteriorate quicker than others due to many factors including high traffic flow, heavy loads, weather conditions, etc. We remind you that a discretionary road ban exists all year round on roads considered sensitive areas and may be posted with a specific weight restriction.
March 12 – April 30, 2015: Heavy traffic will be limited to 90 per cent or as otherwise posted of axle weight capacity on all M.D. roads, with the exception of the La Corey North Resource Road. No drilling rig movements will be approved on M.D. roads during this time.
May 1 - June 1, 2015: Roads will be regularly inspected to determine if the 90 per cent or as otherwise posted weight restriction should be strictly enforced or not. If the weather is fair and the roads are in good shape, the M.D. will remove roads bans on a road by road basis.
We wish to extend our thanks to you for the responsible use of our roads. Road Bans may be lifted sooner, if conditions permit.
