Road Use Agreements

County Road Use Agreements are required from companies that create heavy traffic loads with a potential of causing damage to our roads. The County monitors these roads and ensures that Road Use Agreements are enforced to prevent problems that arise from dust and road damage.

Examples of services/businesses that require Road Use Agreements are as follows:
  • Commercial manure
  • Concrete pumpers
  • Contaminated soil hauls
  • Gravel/sand pit
  • Log hauls
  • Pipelines
  • Seismic operations
  • Septic haulers
  • Water well drillers
  • Wellsites
Contact the Public Works department at 780-352-3321, or toll free at 800-661-4125.

Industrial Agreements
Industry Road Use Agreements have specific clauses requiring these companies to provide dust control, maintenance, signage, etc. to ensure safety of those residents living along the road. Oil Companies/Land Agents must submit a letter of application to the County Public Works Department for project approval, and pay fees in the amount of $100 +GST (regular service), or $250 +GST (rush-72 hours), and provide a detailed survey referencing sight line distances. Once approved, permits must then be obtained from Roadata (888-830-7623) for pre-inspections prior to project commencement, and post inspection upon project completion.

Agricultural Agreements
Agricultural Producers are required to contact Roadata at 888-830-7623 during seasonal road ban months to request an annual blanket haul permit for their own equipment to travel on County Roads with up to a 90% legal weight that are restricted to a 75% road ban. For further specifications, please visit the Roadata website.

More Information
Any permit request above 90% legal weight will require a Road Use Agreement from the County Public Works department at 780-352-3321, or toll free at 800-661-4125.
