Road ban in effect for Grande Prairie gravel roads

As of this morning, all gravel roads within City of Grande Prairie limits are under a road ban. Until further notice, the weight restriction is 75 per cent of normal axle loadings. A ban is already in place for the County.

Transportation Services Manager Robert Carroll explains that the weight restrictions are needed to protect the structural integrity of the roads until the excessive moisture from melting frost dissipates. That normally lasts about four to six weeks.

Spring weight restrictions apply to the following roads:

• RR 71 – 1⁄2 mile South of HWY 43
