When are road bans in effect?

Year-round road bans are in effect on all weight restricted rural roads in County of Wetaskiwin. See the current Road Ban Order for these roads.

During the spring thaw, seasonal road bans are declared to protect our roads. Because seasonal road bans depend on road conditions, the dates vary from year-to-year but they typically run from April–June. During these months the posted axle weight on the majority of weight restricted roads is lowered to 75%.

Some roads have permanent weight restrictions that are not affected by seasonal road bans. See the current Road Ban Order for these roads.
