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.    

Permission to exceed the ban will be reviewed by the municipality on a case-by-case basis for specific trips.

Specific approvals can be obtained by contacting the Municipal District of Bonnyville's Transportation and Utilities Department at 780-812-5000.
