Road Use Agreements

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 such as extreme dust and road damage.

Examples of companies that require Road Use Agreements are as follows:
  • Commercial manure
  • Concrete pumpers
  • Contaminated soil hauls
  • Gravel & Sand pits
  • Log hauls
  • Pipelines
  • Seismic operations
  • Fiber Optics
  • Septic haulers
  • Water well drillers
  • Wellsites
For more information please contact the Public Works department at 780-352-3321, or toll free at 800-661-4125.

Industry Agreements

Road Use Agreements are site specific and 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 Public Works Department for project approval and pay fees in the amount of $100 +GST (regular service), or $250 +GST (rush-72 hours), along with 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 Commodities

Agricultural producers can travel at 90% legal axle weights on roads that are restricted to a 75% spring road ban without obtaining a permit as per the Road Protection By-Law 2014/21, Section 6.0.

Agricultural producers wanting to travel above the 90% legal axle weights will require to sign a Road Use Agreement from Public Works (780-361-6221) and obtain a permit from Roadata Services at 888-830-7623.
