Road Bans Declared as of Friday March 17th 2017 

The City of Grande Prairie, in conjunction with the County of Grande Prairie No. 1 will declare road bans on gravel roads, beginning Friday, March 17th, 2017.

“With the arrival of milder daytime temperatures, it is necessary to assign weight restrictions within the City” says Robert Carroll, Transportations Services Manager for the City of Grande Prairie. “All gravel roads will be at 50 per cent axle weight from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily, until further notice.”
